If you would like a quotation for a translation, please send me the source text by e-mail, in an editable format if possible. State the purpose of the translation and the form in which it will be published.
I can then draw up a quotation based on the source text and quote a total price. My rates are usually based on an amount per line (55 characters including spaces).
If the text is only available in a format that does not enable the characters to be counted, I calculate the price of the translation on the basis of the target text. In such cases, I can quote a line rate but not the total price of the final translation.
In some cases, I charge an hourly rate, for example if a large amount of research is involved or if a text needs adapting or rewriting in the target language. I will discuss this with you in advance.
Please note: Experience has shown that most texts are not completely error-free or unambiguous. For this reason, it is important for a contact person to be available to answer questions during the course of the translation.
All other services are charged by the hour. Where applicable, travel expenses may be added.
