What is Translation?
Translation is the process of translating words, text, documents, applications or hardware from one language into another. Typically, this service is charged on a per word basis. Sometimes it may be charged per hour, line, or character.
Rates tend to differ based on how common the “language pair” may be. This is to say, that English to Spanish Translation services will be ultimately more cost effective (i.e. cheaper) than say a less frequently used language combination such as Swahili to Finnish Translation services.
As you can imagine, covering virtually any language combination, means that translation services are often more complex than thought, as there are endless considerations to be made, such as style, tone and terminology consistency to ensure your content is being effectively communicated.
