It depends on how much text there is to translate. Let’s assume, for example, that the mobile app 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 more content to translate, or if you make frequent updates that require translation updates as well, translation memory can help decrease your overall costs.
