    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 approach generally produces a readable translation.
    • There may be some minor errors.
    • It is the most cost-effective option and is recommended for internal materials or one-time-use content.

    Pro Plan

    Translation + Editing

    (4-eye principle)

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




    • Involving two native linguists ensures a polished and error-free translated book.
    • This option balances quality, cost, and turnaround time effectively.
    • 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 ensure a perfect and publish-ready book.
    • This option is the most expensive but offers the highest quality.
    • It is recommended for critical marketing materials and highly visible book content.
