Frequently asked questions
How many words are there in my document?
If your document is a Word document, word count is easily obtained by selecting the Word Count option in the Tools menu. If your document is on paper, please send me a clear, scanned version. A rough calculation of the number of words can be made using the following as a guide: one A4 page in Times New Roman (font size 12) is normally 450–500 words long.
How much does a translations cost?
The price will vary depending on the size, complexity and format of your document. For example, the translation of a scientific article on exotic fruits, vegetables, edible flowers or mushrooms might cost a little less than a translation of product brochure targeting the horticultural, agricultural or food processing industry. Many factors, including the level of copywriting expertise required, are taken into account. Please contact us for a quotation.
In which formats can I send you my documents?
Word, Excel, Powerpoint, editable PDF and HTML douments are preferred. A surcharge may apply to documents not in the above formats.
What is transcreation?
The objective of transcreation is to get the same reaction to your message from readers in another language. The style, tone, intent and context are preserved so that it is suitable for a certain market. It is a set of activities — far beyond linguistic effort alone — that completely adapt and transform a marketing concept to suit the target market culture and audience.
