Primarily, the cost of text documents translation depends on the target language and the volume of the document, namely, on the number of printed characters with spaces. Also, the cost may increase depending on the subject of translation, urgency of the order and complexity of layout. The price for translation editing by the certified specialist or the native speaker can be added to the order cost.
One translation page is equal to 1800 printed characters with spaces. The standard page A4 in the fourteenth font with a one-and-a-half interval contains approximately such number of characters.
So, the final calculation of the order cost is as follows: the number of characters is multiplied by the rate for the language from which or into which the document shall be translated, and then, if necessary, by the thematic coefficient, coefficient of urgency, layout complexity and editing.

Coefficient of subject complexity
Coefficient of subject complexity is from 1.5 to 2.5, and it is used if the translator needs to use special knowledge, proficiency in profile terminology, as well as, if necessary, compilation of term glossary. In particular, these are financial and banking topics, jurisprudence, technical documentation, medicine, pharmaceuticals, construction and other areas.
Coefficient of urgency
It ranges from 1.5 to 2.5, and is added to the order cost, depending on the volume of translation required and according to the number of days that make up the total term of execution, according to the ordered terms of execution. It is imposed on the cost of the order, the volume of which exceeds 5 pages and requires immediate execution, in particular:
- if the number of pages is from 5 to 8, the coefficient is 1.5
- if the number of pages is from 8 to 10, the coefficient is 1.75
- if the number of pages is more than 10, the coefficient is 2-2.5
Coefficient of layout complexity
It is formed depending on the presence of the following elements on the page (non-drift selections, tables, formulas, illustrations with caption, etc.).
Simple solid text with little presence of additional elements (tables, graphic elements) - the coefficient is 1.5
Text with tables, formulas, illustrations with caption, which is up to 40% of the page - the coefficient is 2.0
Text with tables, formulas, illustrations with caption, which makes up the most part of the page - the coefficient is 2.5
The amount of additional payment for additional editing / proofreading depends on complexity of the original text, as well as on the need to attract specialized editors to work on the text.
The cost of the editor's work, i.e. professional proofreading of the translated material, is 50% of the translation cost additionally. If editing by a native speaker is required, the additional cost is 50% or more, depending on the language and professional field.
