Pricing Policies

Document Length: One page is equivalent to 1-250 words. For example, if your document is 1 page with 1000 words, you will be charged for four pages. If your document has less than 250 words, you will be charged for 1 page.

Bulk Discounts: Translations totaling 20+ pages or 20+ hours (for multimedia translations) will receive a discount based on difficulty and type of translation. To get a price quote, contact us or submit a request form.

Cancellation: If you cancel your order after the translator has already started on the translation, you will be charged a cancellation fee of $15. Once your translation reaches the verification step, it is no longer eligible for a full or partial refund.

Special Orders: For non standard requests such as lectures, dissertations or non legal document translations, please email or call us for a price quote. Prices may vary based on the difficulty of the translation as well as volume. We have experience translating lectures, websites, iPhone applications, and much more.
