Professional Translation Services and Prices

Last updated on June 30th, 2023 at 11:13 am

One of the main concerns clients have when asking for professional translation services is cost. There are many aspects that are taken into consideration that can affect the final price of a professional translation, such as:

  • Language pair
  • Extension or length of the project
  • Format or presentation of the document
  • Subject matter
  • Complexity
  • Turnaround time

Price vs. Quality

Although money is very important, also keep in mind that most of the time there is a very close relation between price and quality. What if you have a very strict time frame and when you get the translation back it is a mess? Names are misspelled; dates are not in the correct format, etc. Maybe with a 5 page-long translation it is not the end of the world, but what about with a 300 page-long translation project?

Time = Money

You thought you were getting a bargain but, what about the time you will now spend correcting the translation? That will cost you time and, therefore, money. Professional translation agencies and professional translators will offer you the most competitive prices in the market for a job well done. Different translators are used to review your translation, by a translator with a new set of eyes and different thinking.

Always Know With Whom You Are Dealing

Before hiring someone to do your translation project, you want to make sure that you are dealing with a serious translation agency. That is why the JR Language Website includes the option of getting free quotes and also offers advice from experienced project managers for your translation requirements. You will be able to get estimates on the cost and delivery time without obligation. Remember: the more you share about your translation project the more exact the estimate will be.

Also, be sure to read testimonials from previous clients that will give you peace of mind about JR Language Translation Services’ performance.

The sole purpose of professional translators is to communicate your message just as you intended and the purpose of experienced translation agencies is to provide you with the best services available. Always put quality first!
