interpretation estimate

Receive an estimate for translation or interpretation services.

InterStar will require the following information to be able to prepare an estimate (all information is treated as confidential):


For translation services:


We will need to see the actual text to be able to make an estimate. If no text is available, we will need:


• Topic of the text

• Level of difficulty (general, technical, etc.)

• Audience for the document

• Languages (from/into)

• Deadline, is rush delivery required?

• Amount of words (we can calculate it for you as well if we have the document)

• Formatting (DTP) requirements

• Any other special requirements ?


For interpretation services:


• Dates

• Mode of interpretation: simultaneous, consecutive, escort, etc.

• Nature of assignment (conference, business talks, etc.)

• Topic(s)

• Languages (from/into)

• Traveling requirements (our interpreters travel domestically in the USA and internationally)

• Will there be any overtime? A standard work day is 6 work hours.

• Do you need simultaneous interpretation equipment? (can be provided at extra cost, a separate quote will be created. Additional information will be requested.)

• Any other special requirements?


All estimates assume that the final cost may be within +/- 20% of the estimate with given parameters.
