Rates

I place great emphasis on a fair and transparent pricing policy and thus, I woud like to give you an overview of how I calculate my net prices for my various language services.

 

All information provided by you will of course be kept strictly confidential.

Translations & certified translations

The price for a translation is calculated on the basis of standard lines (à 55 characters, including blank spaces).

The source text is always the basis for calculation. Several factors, such as the level of difficulty (factual or specialised text), any additional services (proofreading, DTP,...), the delivery date (express delivery surcharges), etc. determine the final price for a translation.

  • price per standard line: starting from € 1.90
  • minimum fee (< 300 words): 75.00
  • surcharges (weekends, night work, etc.): starting from 50 % of the original price
  • PDF scan/formatting work: depending on the effort required

Additional services for certified translations

  • certification fee per document: 25.00
  • registered mail (Austria): € 20.00

 

Court interpreting

  • Interpreting in court: € 150.00 for the first hour, € 120.00 for every additional hour
  • Short assignment (max. 1 hour): starting from € 180.00
