To get an estimate for a translation project, please do:

Please do not forget to mention the total estimated volume, time limits and constraints, source and target languages, type of text or field of specialization, contact person and contact phone (E-mail / alike), type and level of certification / accreditation / notarization / legalization (if needed), type of media for input and output, other relevant and pertaining information.

We shall do an evaluation and advise you on how much time will be needed for the job turnaround, estimate the price and availability of special resources (if needed).

Then we shall inform you of all above, agree on details and start implementing the project.

For interpretation minimal time is 3 (three) and usual time is 4 (four) or more hours per assignment.

Simultaneous interpretation needs special equipment and min. 2 (better 3) interpreters per booth.

Urgent work always costs more than non-urgent.

Big projects from new clients require 50% prepayment in cleared funds to start the work.

N.B. we usually do not consider projects with prices less than 0.08$/word or 25$/hour,
usual minimal price for a translation / revision is $45.

If somewhere else the price seems to be too low, maybe the quality is not very high either. We do not undertake low-quality price-cutting projects, thanks.

We invite intermediaries, go-betweens, brokers, agents, referrals, etc. but please inform us in advance, and you get up to 5%.
