Prices



Thanks to our location in China, we can offer many of our translations for very competitive prices. Our rate for English into Chinese translations, for example, starts at 0.03 USD per word.

We don't use fixed rates but instead determine them individually for each text. The most important factors we consider to determine the rate of a translation are:
- Required language pair
- Difficulty of the text
- Required quality level
- Size of the translation order (rates for bigger orders are lower)
- Customer loyalty (loyal customers which frequently order translations or other services from us receive more favourable rates)
- Additional requirements by the customer (such as formatting)

However, we can also agree on fixed rates if requested.

Procedure



Our translation procedure follows the internationally recognised TEP principle. The TEP principle is used by most translation agencies and consists of three basic steps: T for Translation, E for Editing and P for Proofreading.

Here is a quick overview of our translation procedure:

Notes:
1) Extra checks are especially done for crucial parts of the text and elements which could easily be mistranslated.



Quality



How we ensure the quality of your translations and avoid any bad surprises:

1. We only accept a text if we are confident that we can translate it in a professional and satisfactory way.

2. We use the latest technology to improve our translations:
  - Translation tools such as Trados.
  - Translation memories and glossaries to improve consistency.
     However, we do not blindly trust in technology, for example, we wouldn't use machine translation without checking afterwards.

3. We check translations thoroughly:
  - At least two people are working on the translation (except maybe for budget translations), in many cases more.
  - Additional internal checks through us.
  - Extra internal checks for parts that could easily be mistranslated or contain important information.

4. We use the right translators, they
  - only translate into their mother-tongue (except maybe for budget translations).
  - only translate texts they are familiar with.
  - are tested before working for us, then their quality is continuously assessed while they work for us.
  - receive feedback from us so that they can improve themselves.
