We can translate ca 1500-2000 words per day, depending on difficulty of text and file format of the source text. Small jobs under 200 words can usually be done on the same day or for before lunchtime the next day.
How much does it cost?
We usually charge per word, the price depending on language combination and subject matter (e.g. German to Irish is more expensive than English to Irish, and law, life sciences and very technical texts are more expensive than texts about social matters, education, general economics, general financial, politics or tourism related texts). Proofreading is also charged per word, depending on quality of translation and subject matter. In some cases an hourly wage is applied. All prices for Irish Translations are agreed on an individual basis with the client before a contract is made.
