What are Transcend's rates?

The cost of each translation depends on these factors:

  • Volume (word count)
  • Language (common languages like Spanish or Vietnamese are much less expensive than exotic languages like Nepalese or Dinka.)
  • Formatting – if you need your translation to match the English document.
  • Turn-around – if you need something “yesterday,” there may be a surcharge.
  • The terms of your contract with Transcend.

To know exactly what the fees would be, contact us for a quote on your specific project.
