Agile Translation Pricing With The Customer In Mind
The way translation services are priced is evolving. Pricing is no longer based on the rigid principle of a catalogue rate per word/line/page. This pricing method has been replaced with a more customer nuanced and needs-focused model, which provides customers with greater flexibility with regard to how they pay for translation services. Read on for a further breakdown of these new age price plans below.
Pay As You Go
This is the most suitable plan for customers who are batch ordering or have one-off requests. This plan has tailored rates per language pair, with charges on a per-word basis. There are no contracts or volume commitments, although there is a minimum charge.
This price plan works best if you have long term translation needs. You will receive a single-average unit price per word for all languages. It is ideal for customers who require ongoing translations of content with similar specifications. There are discounts for large volume orders and commitments, and you can receive a human-only translation service or MTPE.
If you require small bits of content translated on an everyday basis, then the Agile plan may be most suitable for you. This plan is based on workflow integration via API. After scoping your service, you will receive a customised price per desired unit. It means that Lingvohouse can accept and translate small pieces of similar content without the need to price each request. This model is ideal for marketing, communication and product localisation stakeholders, and there is some contract commitment required.
Longer term subscriptions are usually better value for customers who have sizeable volume translation needs. You will receive a customized subscription rate based on word count, document count or another suitable metric. This provides you with predictable discounted pricing.
How Are Rates Calculated?
Rates are calculated according to multiple factors. This may include language pair, type of content, customer vertical, service level, add-ons and discounts for bulk orders. Recycling discounts are also available, which means you never pay twice to translate the same segment. Customers receive discounts on similar segments and segments repeated in the source content.
