Approximate quotes for financial statements
Financial statements consist of clichés and often have the same structure. However, the volume of text may vary; that’s why we quote source files based on the number of words. Besides, we provide a discount on repetitions in text and translation memory matches. Please find below our rates for translation (proofreading included).
Our approach to financial statements and how to translate them
Financial statements are not the kind of documents that we can start translating right on the spot. Typically, they need three pre-translation stages: we estimate the volume of work first, then we look for repetitions in text and finally calculate a ratio of numbers to words. Based on these details, we’ll be able to set a deadline and send you a quote with all possible discounts.
We pre-translate your files to save you money and time
We often receive scanned copies of financial statements that have seals and signatures. They mostly include tables with data. To save the tables in a target file, we convert the entire file into an editable text. We call it the pre-translation stage.
What is the pre-translation stage for?
- To adjust the target layout so that it is similar to that of the source file (if needed).
- To find repetitions in text with specialized software and offer a corresponding discount.
- To translate faster
- To use a translation memory (TM) that helps us maintain the consistency when it comes to terminology.
We do our best to translate terms correctly
Translating financial statements is not a problem to us because it’s usually drafted under common national or international standards. What’s more, our translators have an access to our extensive term glossary to avoid reinventing the wheel and use approved expressions and terms.
