Frequently Asked Questions

What is a translator's page?

1 translator's page = 1,560 characters without spaces

To find out how many characters without spaces are in your document, in Microsoft Word go to the lower left-hand corner and click the Words button. A dialog box appears. Copy the amount of "Characters (no spaces)" and include it in your email. If your article includes a reference list and you do not want us to review it, subtract those characters from the total for the whole article.

My text is X number of pages long. How long will it take to proofread/translate?

We agree on delivery case by case. However, we recommend that you submit your text well before your deadline. If you are still in the process of writing, we recommend that you contact us to reserve a time.

Do you use Track Changes for proofreading?

Yes. All changes made by our reviewers appear as Track Changes. For other issues and questions, the reviewers use Comment boxes.
