Certified Translation

Certified translation costs

What does a certified translation cost?

Translation prices are based on text volume, more specifically, on the number of words in a document.

The more words a translator needs to translate into another language, the more time it takes – and that involves more costs. The prices vary according to language combinations or the difficulty of the text.
