Basic pricing principles
Our basic principles are to work on a time and material basis and to be transparent through the whole process, from quotation and deadline negotiation to the invoicing of our services. However, the end price depends on many factors, therefore we only apply price lists for our contracted customers. Quotations are always free and mean no obligation for order. We are open at any time to sign individual NDAs if a quotation for confidential content is requested.
Translation prices are typically calculated according to source language wordcounts. As we work with translation tools using Translation Memory technology, TM matches and internal repetitions are always taken into account. Translation Memory content or bilingual documents are included in the price and are delivered with the translation at any time if requested.
Software localization prices are calculated typically based on source words for the translation part and on engineering hours on for the technical part. The software translation pricing method is similar to regular translation. As different text types require different translation approaches, word prices are calculated differently for user interface texts and for online help and documentation texts.
The pricing model for SAP translation depends on many factors, such as the basis release of the system or the tool used for translation. Using apps4trans, it is possible to calculate the source wordcount accurately. Using SE63, the basis can be either newly created translation lines or hours.
Interpretation prices are calculated typically on an hourly basis. Prices depend on the type of interpretation (consecutive, synchronous or whispered).
