How is the price of a translation calculated?

The price of each translation project depends on many factors, including the type of document translation (website, personal correspondence, legal manual, medical document), the length of the text to be translated, whether or not certification is required, how many translations are required and which languages you need your project translated into or from.

Because each project is unique, the easiest way to determine the cost of your translation project is to fill our our free quote request form and allow one of our customer service representatives to go over your project, make an estimate and get back to you personally!

Translation Services USA has developed a free tool for webmasters called ConveyThis.

ConveyThis combines the power of all the major online translators and condenses them into a small, elegant button that can fit into any site's layout or design with ease. Once added to the site, visitors need only to hover their mouse over the button. A drop-down menu will appear with a list of supported languages on it (as of this post, 29 languages are supported, with more being added regularly). Visitors select a language from the list, then choose from a number of popular translators (including Babel Fish, Google, WorldLingo, Kwintessential, SDL, Live Translator, Promt, and InterTran). After selecting the translator, the page refreshes, translated into their language of preference with their translator of choice. No clicking away to other sites, no copying and pasting URLs, just two clicks and your site's content is instantly conveyed!
