What does it cost to translate a document?

It depends on the length of the document. Let’s assume, for example, that the document has 2000 words and that the translation for the language you select is $0.15 per word. The cost would be $300 for one language. However, if you have multiple documents to translate, translation memory can help decrease your overall costs.
