Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to translate 10,000 words?

Translation timelines can vary from very urgent to standard turnaround times. The recommended time for translation would be 5-6 working days; however this can be expedited to 1-2 working days. We always recommend to clients that if more time is feasible, then this should be given as it allows for a smaller team size, greater consistency and more time for Quality Control and Review.

How much does it cost to translate 10,000 words?

Costings will vary depending on the project requirements, language pairs, subject matter and source document type as well as any post processing guidelines. An indicative range would be £800-£1,200 to translate 10,000 words into or from any European language.

How much lead time do I need before ordering a translation?

No lead time is required. However, any prior notice you can allow for is always appreciated.

How accurate is machine translation?

Raw machine translation is still not usable for any professional or business documentation. Post Editing of Machine Translation (PEMT) is a growing service that can work for extremely technical materials such as in the IT sector.

What is a Translation Memory?

A translation memory is a store of a previous human translation. It can be used to assist future translation, allowing for discounts should editable documents be similar to previously translated material or contain repetitions.

What kind of translation partnerships can I obtain?

Latin Link strives to offer long term, professional partnerships with our clients. Any partnerships formed can allow for preferential rates and increased customisation of our customer service to your requirements.

What are the minimum qualifications for a translator?

Our translators have a minimum of 5 years professional experience, as well as relevant qualifications in both translation as well as the subject matter of the documentation.
