Time to do the sums...
Rates vary depending on:
the volume of text (reductions can sometimes be agreed for large volumes)
the technicality of the subject matter
the degree of repetition in the text
whether files need to be recreated from scratch (e.g. a pdf source file that does not convert cleanly)
Lioness Translation’s rates are as follows*:
TRANSLATION (FR to EN): £0.07 to £0.09 GBP per word.
REREADING (translated EN against original FR): £0.018 to £0.02 GBP per word.
PROOFREADING (EN only): £0.015 GBP per word if a native Anglophone has written the text. £0.018 GBP per word otherwise.
TRANSCRIPTION: £15 GBP per hour of my time (roughly £3.50 GBP per audio minute). VARIABLE, e.g. if the recording is unclear and/or several people are talking at once.
OTHER SERVICES: case-dependent – feel free to get in touch.
There is a minimum fee of £20 GBP for any translation - see "About quotes" page
