Price calculator

  • Use MS Word to count the length of your text in characters (including spaces) and input this into the calculator below, which will divide by 55 to get the number of standard lines and then multiply that by the rate per line.
  • The calculator gives you the price, based on standard lines, for the target language. Please note that translations into some languages are likely to turn out considerably shorter (e.g. English) or longer (e.g. French or Italian), so the source language only gives you a rough idea of the cost.
  • In principle, we can translate from German or English into and out of all languages in the calculator, and can also translate many of the other language combinations, but we cannot be sure of finding suppliers for every possible combination.

Our prices are usually based on standard lines and the target language for your translation. This is the normal basis of calculation in Central Europe, so it makes price comparisons easier. However we are happy to price according to words and/or the source language. The advantage of using the source language is that you know from the start exactly what the translation will cost. The disadvantage is that translations into English cost more. For administrative and IT reasons the same basis for calculating the text length must apply to all of your translations.

The prices below apply only to translations of normal difficulty, and we reserve the right to charge higher rates for highly specialised translations. All prices are subject to changes if our suppliers alter their rates.
