Translation Proofreading Lectorate

Whether a business offer, presentation, website, contract, brochure or report, correct spelling and proper use of language prevent misunderstandings and convey professionalism.

Multimedia Translation

A translation can include various media. We translate all content, including videos.

Languages ​​and Quality

From professional translators to linguists, we only use experts with extensive experience and verifiable references. The target language must always be their native language.

Technical Translations

Technical translations require not only language skills but also specialist knowledge.

For complex technical content, we offer a free test translation.

Prices per Word, Page or Character?

We calculate the translation costs based on the number of words. An A4 page contains between 250 to 350 words. The online tool charcount.com makes it easy to analyze the amount of text and determine the price.

Example of a simple translation German to English, 0.12 CHF per word, A4 page with 300 * words 36.- CHF
Example of a technical translation German to Italian, 0.17 CHF per word, A4 page with 300 * words 51.- CHF

* Word prices are based on a minimum text size of 1,000 words. For follow-up orders (after the first order) with less than 1,000 words, we charge a fee of 15.- CHF. For monthly text quantities over 2,000 words, this fee will be waived, regardless of the number of orders.

Source Format Equals Target Format

Unless otherwise requested, our translations are always source-target format translations. This allows us to guarantee correct hyphenation according to orthographic rules.

Proofreading or Editing?

Proofreading involves checking a text for errors in spelling, grammar, punctuation and typography. No stylistic interventions are made.

Editing includes all the elements of proofreading, but the style of the text is additionally checked for content and logic and adjusted if necessary.

Prices start at 0.10 CHF per word  and vary depending on the quality.

How Long Does a Translation Take?

A qualified and experienced translator translates about 2,000 to 2500 words per day. Technical translations typically take five working days. Most of our translators are working on Saturdays as well.
