Translation Price Idea

Important note on keeping customization/formatting work in translated version
Prices vary on subject matter, complexity of language and terminology used, expression made etc. Any table, graph, diagram, formatting work, placement, font variations etc, broadly speaking, any kind of customization/format work of source document cannot be maintained in the translated version. Any customization/format work in the translated version should be broadly discussed by the customer beforehand and shall be charged extra as such works incur extra time, labor and expertise. Sometimes, the customer provides the document in the form of softcopy (i.e. MS Word) on which translation can be inserted and in this case, we try to keep the original format as best as possible. Quoting per-page pricing usually means an ideal page i.e., A4-size page; Times New Roman / Arial font with 12/11 font size; 1.50″ or more page margins; 1.5 or more line spacing; plain content without any customization work. For more clarification, a discussion can be suitable.
Caution for client
Please take caution to employ the lowest bidder until you verify their language or translation ability (with a sample page). You can’t eat a rotten egg whatever cheap it may be!
