Required Quality Level

As we translate for all business needs & budgets, we have three service levels on offer. Please see the Service Levels we have on offer for common business enquiries.

Unlike many companies, we do not offer machine translation at all, and our starter “Professional” Translation Level is already of a much higher standard than at other firms, as it’s 100% human professional translation, performed an established fully qualified & vetted native speaker translator with expertise in the subject-matter, full revision & spell-check included.

For complex needs, high-volume translation, regular translation support we will tailor the service level and the price.


The rarity of the language

The rarer the language, the higher the price we charge for the translation. For most common languages such as Spanish, the rate will start from £0.08 per word depending on the level of quality required.


Complexity of work

The price rises with the degree of difficulty. The more specific your text, the higher our rate is. This is to cover time for terms research, creating of term dictionary etc.


Urgent and Off-hours work

Additional fees will be raised for urgent and weekend work. We charge an extra fee of 10-50% depending on the urgency of work.



A higher rate will be charged for translation of non-editable or hard copies, as it takes more time to pattern after the original layout. An additional fee is between 5 and 10%. handwriting & special file formats such as Indesign, XML etc, will also be charged higher as this is time-consuming to translate such files.

Business Customers

We have a minimum charge for small business orders, this is to cover up admin overheads, which is £75+VAT. We can go a little lower in exceptional cases: deadline, subject-matter & language pair permitting. If you have under 2 pages of text, this is most likely be a minimum charge and you can place the order online.


Private Individuals

If you are looking to translate a small certificate (i.e. birth, marriage, death or divorce certificate, a diploma, police-check or a no-claims bonus, or a letter, this type of translation is charged at a fixed fee and you can see all prices and place order online here. We do not need you to bring the document in, you can simply upload it online. This will still be a fully certified translation.

Each interpreter charges their own fee, and the going rate depends a lot on location. London tends to be more expensive than in counties. Rate vary a lot depending on language and subject matter.

Conference interpreting will be charged at least twice higher than police interpreting. It’s too difficult to price up interpreting online, to discuss in details please contact us

How much does a translation cost?

How much does a translation cost per page?

Based on 200 words per page, the price of translation per page will start from £16+VAT for professional translation of general content. this will, however, be subject to a minimum charge to cover admin overheads and, possibly formatting fees.

If you have a personal certificate such as a diploma or marriage certificate, there is a fixed fee per document of this type starting from £45+VAT.


How much do UK translators charge per word?

LingvoHouse translators charge from £0.08+VAT per word for simple professional translation of written documents and other content. The rate will be higher for Expert translation services or Transcreation Services for Business Critical Translations.

The rate per word will also depend on language pair, urgency and many other factors, that’s why we’d like to have a sight of the document rather than quote blind.

How much does it cost to translate 1000 words?

Cost to translate 1000 words of general simple text will start from £80+VAT and will go up depending on language pair, urgency, format, complexity and other factors. Cost to translate 1000 words on the Expert level of service will start from £110+VAT.

However, we do offer up to 70% discount for repetitions, hence the final price might be much lower if your document has a lot of the same content on some pages.

There is, however, a minimum charge for very small orders (under 3 pages) to cover admin overheads.

Why do we need the files to provide a quote?

Translation fees can be discounted for repetitions up to 70%. We need to run the content through the software to establish the word count stats and give you an accurate price.
