What is the difference between interpreting and translating?

Interpreting is done orally and translation is done in a written format.

How much longer will my foreign language document be?

Remember, written translations may expand anywhere from 20% to 25% from the original text in English.

What can I expect to pay for a translation?

All documents are not the same. It is essential for you to understand the pricing process. Translation costs vary depending on many different factors: language, both the target language and the level of difficulty, turnaround time, the size of the document and additional services such as desktop publishing. Typically, the total number of words that were translated into the target language are paid on a per word basis. There is usually a minimum translation project fee.

Can you meet deadlines when translating?

Yes we can, however because quality is our first concern, we will always ask you to reconsider your deadline if we think that quality is going to be sacrificed.

Can I get my project overnight?

In order to maintain the quality of your translation, it is highly recommended that you allow enough time to have your project translated carefully and accurately. Multilingual Planet provides a guide to our clients explaining the necessary steps that go into a professionally prepared translation. This way you will understand all the intricate steps involved in the translation process.
