Prices

My pricing policy is based on the results of the annual fee survey conducted by UNIVERSITAS Austria (in German), the Austrian Interpreters’ and Translators’ Association.

Translation costs are calculated per standard line. A standard line has 55 characters including spaces and costs are based on the number of standard lines in the target text, i.e. the completed translation. I offer reduced rates for official documents, certificates and similar texts.

Prices for interpreting depend on the location and duration of the assignment, the field of expertise and the type of interpretation needed (whispered interpretation or consecutive interpretation).

Fees for proofreading and revision are based on the amount of time invested, which varies depending on the type and length of the text.

Contact me. I will gladly send you a non-binding offer.
All information you send me will be treated with the utmost confidentiality.
