How long does it take to translate a document?

The answer really depends on the content, language and what you want the translation for.

Typically our translators translate between 1,200 to 1,400 new words per day. A standard A4 page has around 300 words, but some contracts can have up to 800 words in fine print. So we have to look at the text, the format and the content. Legal translation would be slower than general business text for example.

Based on having a single translator working on a project, turnaround time can be estimated as follows: (total number of words / 1,200) + 2 days for project management and proofreading.
