Translation Pricing Models

The following are some of the most common translation services pricing models used in the industry:
Per-word pricing:  This is the most common pricing model. The translator charges a certain amount for each word that they translate. The per-word rate can vary depending on the factors discussed above, such as the complexity of the text, the language combination, and the urgency of the translation.
Per-character pricing:  This pricing model is typically used for written languages using characters, such as Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. The translator charges a certain amount for each character that they translate.
Per-hour pricing:  This pricing model is typically used for large or complex translation projects. The translator charges a certain amount for each hour that they work.

Minimum fee: Some translators may charge a minimum fee, even for small translation projects. This is to cover their overhead costs. Beyond the pricing model, costs may also be influenced by other variables such as:

  • Need for proofreading
  • Use of specialized translation technology
  • Relationship between the client and the translator

Factors Affecting Translation Costs

Text complexity:

Technical and legal documents are more complex and require specialized expertise, so they cost more to translate.

Type of content:

Translating websites and apps requires specialized knowledge of software and formatting, so it costs more than translating printed documents.

Delivery time:

Urgent translations cost more because the translator needs to work faster.


Certified translations cost more than non-certified translations.

Language combination:

Some language combinations are more popular than others, so they cost less.

Location of the translator:

Translators in developed countries typically charge more than translators in developing countries.

Structure of the translation team:

Large or complex translation projects may require a team of translators, editors, and proofreaders, which can increase the cost.


Proofreading is an important step in the translation process and can add to the cost if done by a separate proofreader.

The volume of the translation:

Large translation projects can be discounted because the translator can save time by translating multiple documents simultaneously.

How To Prepare Your Content To Cut Translation Costs

Use plain language: Avoid using jargon, technical terms, or slang. Keep your text conciseThe shorter the text, the less it will cost to translate.
Use consistent terminology: If you use a technical document, create a glossary of terms and provide it to the translator.
Format your text correctly: Ensure your text is properly formatted, including headings, subheadings, and lists.
Remove any errors: Ensure your text is error-free before sending it to the translator.
Provide clear instructions: Tell the translator what you need them to do, such as the level of accuracy required and the deadline.

How To Prepare Your Content To Cut Translation Costs

Choose the right language combination: Some are more expensive than others.
Use a reputable translation agency: A reputable translation agency will have a team of experienced translators who can deliver high-quality translations at a competitive price.
Negotiate the price: Don’t be afraid to negotiate the price of a translation project.
Be clear about your requirements: The more clear you are about your needs, the easier it will be for the translation agency to give you an accurate quote.
Be prepared to pay for quality: Don’t try to save money by hiring a low-cost translator. A low-quality translation can protect your reputation and help your business.
