1. How Do You Calculate Translation Rates For Your Medical Translation Projects?


To have the exact price of a translation project, we take many factors that affect translation costs into consideration:

  • Project volume: In most cases, we give the quotation per word or characters. The number of words/characters is the most precise indication of the effort our linguists put into the project.
  • Service required: Some translation projects only require Translation Only (TO), others need both Translation and Editing (TE), or Translation + Editing + Proofreading (TEP). The more steps a project need, the higher the rate is.
  • Industry expertise: The complexity of the required domain also affects the price of the project. General topics are charged less than high-expertise content.

Our competitive rate for a translation project starts from $0.06/word. Please contact our team for a quotation for your project.

2. How Long Does It Take To Complete A Translation Project?

It depends on the volume, content types, required services, and other project-specific factors. In general, our translator metric is 2,500 words per business day for translation projects. In some cases, we assign a translation task for multiple translators to handle, with the capacity of 8,000-10,000 words per day, given it’s a standard Translation and Editing job performed by one translator and one editor. For example, if you have a 10,000-word-English-to-Chinese-project, you can expect to receive the translation in about 1 to 1.5 business days.
