How long should it take to translate a document?

0

This all depends on how many resources you are willing to put on the job, and whether you are willing to accept certain trade-offs. As a very approximate rule of thumb, we figure that one translator can handle about 3,000 words a day, and an editor about 10,000. If you need the translation faster, you can hire a translation company that will put several translators and editors on the job. However, keep in mind that the more people work on your job, the more difficult it will be for your provider to deal with style and term inconsistencies that could affect the usability of the final product. This is especially the case when a project requires more than one or two editors. The increased difficulty of the task could be reflected in a premium rate.
