Translation continues to be priced mainly by the word, but it’s not quite as simple as counting up the tokens and multiplying by a set price. In the unstandardized world of language services, “word” and “translation” mean different things to different people. What constitutes a word, how suppliers determine the number of words in a document, what’s included in the translation service, and what other fees they might charge affect the final invoice. Meanwhile, some language service providers (LSPs) are experimenting with prices set not by the word but by project and volume.
