Pricing

It is certainly possible to find many cheaper translators.
If, however, your focus is not just the bottom line, but an extraordinary quality and a high standard of services rendered; in short: a first-class comprehensive service, we will certainly find a common ground.

My quotes are based on source text word count. After analyzing the text to be translated, I will submit an accurate and binding price, so that you know in advance how much my services will cost. In rather sporadic cases, where source text word count cannot be determined, I charge by the target word count.

I do not overcomplicate the price calculation nor bother the client with any express performance or specialized subject fees, formatting surcharges and the like. If I cannot guarantee a flawless result because of lack of competence in the given field or time constraints, I simply do not accept such projects.

On the other hand, I do not offer any volume discounts nor percent match discounts based on comparisons with used translation memory. The translation of every single word out of a million requires the same attention and effort as the translation of the first one; often even a 100 % match with a translation memory may not represent a correct translation in a specific context. Translation memory and term base management is time-consuming, but it may lead to significant time savings and early project delivery when performed with due diligence.

Proofreading by another translator is always considered in each project proposal. Upon client request, I do provide translations without an independent proofreading. This however must be agreed explicitly. Of course I give the utmost attention aiming at a perfect result to translations without independent proofreading as well, per contra, proofreading is an industry standard and a part of my quality assurance process.


Minimum project price is 25 € (or the equivalent value in USD or GBP).

I invoice and receive payments in the following currencies: CZK, EUR, USD, GBP.

Bank transfer or PayPal payments are accepted.

My invoices are subject to VAT – my VAT No. is CZ8508220072
