What goes into a translation quote?

Translation is an investment into your company, your brand, your clients, your employees and your suppliers. It shows that you care. At Rossion, we will always do our best to work within your budgets and timelines.

Your Project Is Unique

At Rossion, we look at every translation project individually and base the price on its specific requirements. In order to give you the best price possible, we need to consider various elements:

What language combination(s) do you need? Not all languages are priced the same way and some languages require more investment than others. The number of languages you require also impacts pricing.

The number of words in a document impacts the price.

Is your content more general in nature or is it more technical? If it’s a technical translation, we will require a subject matter expert, which typically has a higher price per word.

Beyond content, the next element we consider is the type of project being translated. Different project types are carried out with specific workflows. Does the project require complex project management where there are many parts to it or is it more straightforward? All of these factors affect the total investment into your translation project.

It’s easiest to translate files that are in editable formats, such as Word, Excel, PPT, etc. It is possible to translate files that are in a non-editable format, such as pdf, however more file preparation and manipulation as well as graphics work is required. The Rossion team will work with our document engineers on file preparation and with our DTP specialists to perfect the document layout after translation.

We will always do our best to accommodate your deadlines. For every project, we look at the amount of time it will take to complete the required job professionally, taking into account things such as research, translation time, and the type of workflow involved.

Rossion will work with you to come up with a realistic, reasonable and affordable strategy to ensure you get your project translated when you need it.
