ITSA translates at market-friendly rates with the focus on quality and efficiency
The cost for a professional translation will depend on the complexity and volume of the text, the source and target languages, the time allowed for delivery, the desired delivery format for the translation, plus further factors. The quality of the translation will reflect the quality of your product. That's why we – in contrast to low-cost providers – work exclusively with qualified professional translators.
We'll be pleased to calculate the approximate costs for a translation into the specified target language in advance; simply send us your files. A standard line comprising 53 keystrokes constitutes the basic costing unit. Simply send us your enquiry via our enquiry form and we will forward you a quotation as quickly as possible.

Quality takes time, and translations are no exception
Experience has shown that translation is the last link in a long process chain – and frequently needs to make up for delays that have crept in during the compilation of the source text. On average, a technical translator will be able to complete between 10,000 and 12,000 characters per day, depending on the complexity of the source text. This corresponds to approximately 6 to 8 A4 pages. In principle: The more time you allow for a translation, the higher the quality, since it allows the translator to research more thoroughly, but also edit their work with a fresh outlook after taking a break from the task.
Nevertheless, we are also aware that time is frequently a scarce commodity. That's why we also accept express orders that need to be completed on the same day or outside of normal working hours, during evenings or weekends.
