    Get High-Quality Book Translation Services

    Book localization services are extremely important for an author to reach their audience from different parts of the world, and it is regarded as one of the most challenging translation tasks. Our talented linguistics with over 5 years of experience in book translations will go the extra mile to meet your book localization request. We do not simply translate word for word but also make changes regarding words, pictures, and illustrations to fit the target cultures and social norms.

    Types of Book Translation Services

    Here are some common types of our book localization services.

    Choose Your Book Translation Services

    As a professional book translation company, GTE Localize provides three translation plans, allowing you to always meet your cost targets or demands.

    Standard Plan

    Translation Only

    (2-eye principle)

    One native translator is assigned to translate and self-review your book content.




    – This method generally gives you a readable translation.

    – There might be some minor errors.

    – This is the most cost-saving book translation option and is recommended for internal materials or single-use content.


    Pro Plan

    Translation + Editing

    (4-eye principle)

    The book is translated by one native translator before being revised by another editor.




    – With the involvement of two native linguists, your translated book is polished and error-free.

    – This option balances three important factors: quality, cost, and turnaround time.

    – It should be used for book localization.


    Premium Plan

    Translation + Editing + Proofreading

    (6-eye principle)

    Your book is carried out by three native linguists, who will perform the three steps: translating, editing, and proofreading.



    – Three native linguists can handle the book, making it perfect and ready to publish.

    – This option is the most expensive but the quality is the highest.

    – It is suggested for critical marketing materials and high-visibility book content.

    Book Translation Services Q&A

    We analyze numerous factors affecting book translation prices to get an exact estimate for a book translation project:
    Project capacity: We usually give per-word or per-character price. Our translation rates are based on the word count or character count.
    Service required: The prices will depend on your translation option. A translation option that needs more steps will cost a higher price. According to your budget and requirements, you can choose among these plans: Translation Only (TO), Translation and Editing (TE), or Translation + Editing + Proofreading (TEP).
    Industry expertise: Any need for the translator’s unique knowledge may impact the cost. Special expertise is frequently associated with a thorough understanding of a field and a thorough command of its vocabulary.
