Pricing – Extreme Value, Competitive Pricinglarge-icon-02

Aplomb will always try to match a quote.

How are translation costs calculated?

Rates are calculated from the word count or character count of a completed translation. Quotations are based on the estimated final word count, allowing for expansion or contraction of text.  If the estimate is too high, the price will go down.  Price per word varies according to language and document type (unusual languages and specialist translations are more expensive, for example) and we have a minimum charge of £75 plus VAT.


Is Proofreading really FREE?


Proofreading is always included in the cost of Aplomb’s translations as we provide a full professional quality service.

All our translation prices include proofreading as standard.  Separate proofreading services are charged by the hour – which is most cost efficient.

How is Subtitling priced?

Subtitling is charged in accordance with the final word count, and sometimes there are formatting costs.

How are Voice overs priced?

Voice overs are charged on an hourly basis.

Legalisation & Notarisation
