Finally let us know your desired delivery format, i.e. InDesign, PDF, Word doc, subtitles, and so on. If you require further services such as typesetting, we will need sight of the original document for an accurate quote.

Once you’re happy with our costs and would like to go ahead, an assigned account manager will start your translation project. After a 50% deposit invoice has been paid, you will be asked to send the latest files for the project. It is also helpful to have reference materials such as PDFs, tone of voice, specific terminology or glossaries if available. Timescales will be discussed and confirmed. Now relax, your translation project will be underway and delivered on time and on budget with an account manager keeping you in the loop.

What is the usual turnaround time for translation projects?

This depends on numerous factors, but the mains ones are:

  • The word count.
  • The format.
  • The subject matter.
  • The translation services requested.

Translation: 2000-2500 words per day
