Rates depend on the type of project, its field of expertise, its requirements and are usually based on the number of source words (for editable texts) or target words (for non-editable texts).
Literary translations (e.g. novels, short stories, non-fiction books) can be charged per page (1,500 characters, 25 lines) or per word.
A certificate of accuracy is included in legal translation rates.
A minimum charge applies for texts under 300 words.
A surcharge is applied for special requirements such as weekend work, rush deliveries and formatting.
