5 factors that affect the cost of translation services

by The Yellow Coin PR Agency in Delhi

The need for language translation agencies in today’s world cannot be emphasized enough. With the economies of different countries becoming more interconnected than ever, translation is necessary for efficient communication of thoughts and ideas. Also, if a brand has customers in a different country that its native county, then by conversing to those people in their mother tongue helps foster trust between customers and the brand – which results in growth of business.

Before making the decision to avail the services of language translation agencies, the first thought that comes to mind is the cost. Along with the quality of translation, cost is one of the most important factors that affect the decision of whether or not an organization will hire a company that provides translation services in Delhi and other metro cities of the country. Therefore, having an understanding of the factors that influence the cost of translation can help you make a better, more informed decision. Let us take a look at the briefly.

Level of complexity

The cost of translation per word or per page depends upon the type of content that needs to be translated. Translating an interview speech is easier than translating a business contract and therefore, cheaper. Since, translating complex content requires a certain skill set; such tasks are best left to experts. They may cost a bit more, but the end product you get will be worth your money.

Volume of work

As it is with other businesses, if you have a large volume of work or if the work you need from an agency is continuous, then the companies that provide translation services in Delhi will be more likely to negotiate on the pricing and offer you very reasonable rates. Therefore, you should always inform the agency beforehand about the volume and frequency of work that you will require.

How soon do you want it?

Another factor that plays a major role in the pricing of language translation agencies is the level of urgency. For instance, if you want a 10,000 word manuscript translated within a day, then you have to be willing to pay more. The reason is that the translators would need to suspend their ongoing work and put in extra hours to get your job done with diligence. For their extra effort, they’ll need to be justly compensated as well.

Language combination

If the language combination for the translation process is common (e.g. English to French or vice-versa), the rate of translation would be cheaper. But if the language combination is rare (e.g. English to Vietnamese), it would end up costing you more.

Required level of service

Here’s the question: how accurate do you want to be? If you are fine with simple translation where the translator himself/herself reviews his/her work, then you can get the services for a cheaper rate. But if you want to ensure pinpoint accuracy, then additional services besides translation, like editing and proofreading would be required, which would cost you more.
