RATES AND SERVICES

 

How much will your translation cost? To give you an idea: my standard rate is EUR 0,10 per (English, German, Dutch) source word for your general mine or culinary translation.
A literary translation is slightly more expensive: EUR 0,15 per source word.

Send me your file – completely free of charge, without obligation and confidential –  and I will provide you with a customised quote.
You will receive your quote within a few hours (max. one working day).
Or, alternatively, you can send me an email or Skype me. I look forward to hearing from you!

  • * Rates are VAT exempted thanks to the “Kleinunternehmersregelung” ("small business operator regulation") which applies  to my small one-person business. You, the end customer, don't have to pay sales tax. This means a price reduction of 20%.  Particularly private customers benefit from this.
    In addition I have, as a freelancer, lower overhead costs than an average translation agency, so I can keep my costs anod my rates low.
