The costs vary, depending on the language, deadline, file format, type of document, subject area as well as additional services such as graphic work. Therefore, we calculate the costs of each order individually.

We determine the deadline before the work on the text begins. As a rule, we can translate and proofread about 2000 words per working day.

Depending on what processes you require and the deadline, we can assemble a team of translators, graphic artists and proofreaders to complete the job. This allows us to work faster.
