Translation and proofreading
MET Translation Office will provide:
- a free test translation
- a free quotation
- confidentiality on all texts and personal information
We calculate our translation fee based on the number of characters in the translatable text.
- translation from a foreign language to Hungarian: from HUF 2.00 /character (1500-character page: HUF 3000)
- translation from Hungarian to a foreign language: from HUF 2.40 /character (1500-character page: HUF 3600)
- proofreading in Hungarian: from HUF 1.00 / character (1500-character page: HUF 1500)
- proofreading in a foreign language: from HUF 1.20 / character (1500-character page: HUF 1800)
What does character mean?
1 character = 1 letter (without the spaces)
In our experience, one page usually contains about 1,250-3,000 characters depending on the width of the margins, the density of the letters and lines, the size and number of pictures/ graphs/ tables, as well as on the size of the letters. The really dense text of a legal document naturally consists of more characters than a technical manual or a webpage with loose text and a lot of pictures.
In the case of a Word document, you can quickly check the number of characters in your text by clicking on
- Review tab (on the top)
- Word Count
- Number of characters without space
When we calculate the translation fee, we multiply the number of characters in your text with the character price we can offer to the particular text. The character price depends on the difficulty of the text and on the number of words that are repeated in the text. We can check the repetitions by a special programme, and we will send you the statistics of them upon request.
We offer a specific quotation to each translation including DISCOUNTS (e.g.: 10% for students/ large texts). NO EXTRA FEE FOR URGENT TRANSLATIONS! Ask for our offer at Request for Quote
