How Long Will My Translation Take?
Clients often ask this question, which leads to several answers, therefore here we have provided some valuable information on the time required to provide you with your translations.
Project Delivery Times
The turnaround time of a translation depends on various factors, from the number of words, the level of difficulty of the languages and file formats, to the area of specialization. In order to complete a good quality translation, there needs to be enough time available for project management, proofreading, and email exchanges to take place. We must also take into account that on average, it takes a translator a day to translate 2,000 words.
For the most urgent projects, or those that are higher in volume, teams of several professionals are formed, with a project manager to coordinate the team. Below, you will find some information about the turnaround times according to the number of words that your project contains:
A translator can usually translate between 1,500 and 2,000 words per day. Aside from the size of the project, a quality assurance check is always carried out to make sure that the translation doesn't contain any errors, and ensures that the original format has been maintained.
Therefore, a translation of a 2,000-word document can take around 2 days.
However, the more time you have to complete a task, the higher the quality is guaranteed.
When working on projects with tight deadlines, documents between 5000 and 10000 words are generally handled by more than one translator.
To guarantee translation consistency, we use translation memories for correct terminology management. This means that all translators working on the same project can work with the same vocabulary, ensuring that your translation is coherent throughout.
However, when a standard deadline is set, only one translator will handle the job.
Thanks to the wide geographical scope of our translation team, we are more than able to manage large translation projects.
In this situation, each translator takes on an additional task, such as, project manager, building up the bilingual glossary, proofreading, etc.
This comprehensive approach, alongside the close collaboration of our professionals, allows us to deliver the highest quality translations to you and your business, within the shortest possible time.
