Help - Questions

What does a Proverb translation cost?

We calculate prices for specialist translations on a per word or line basis. Our prices will vary by language, specialty area and degree of difficulty. DTP services will be calculated according to the number of pages; additional formatting work or localisation assignments are calculated based on cost.
Once you send us your documents or details for your language project, we can provide a proposal within a very short time period.

Who will be translating my texts?

Translations are only prepared by qualified and graduate translators. We work according to the European Quality Standard DIN EN 15038, and are committed to ensuring the quality of translations according to these guidelines. Generally, all translations are reviewed and corrected by a second qualified translator.

What is Proverb's turnaround time for translations?

In many cases we are able to complete translation assignments within 24 hours. If you have a particularly urgent project, call our service number or use our online form.

In the case of larger multi-lingual translations we will assign a suitable translation team depending on the project, in order to reduce the processing time.

We would also be pleased to prepare a customised proposal with information on a possible delivery date, once you send us the details of your project and documents. Of course this proposal is provided at no cost to you.

Does Proverb also use automatic translation software?

No. Translations are only done by qualified specialist translators, who use translation memory systems (TMS) in order to reduce the processing time and at the same time warrant a high level of translation quality, but these systems are not machine translation programs.

What are the advantages of translation memory systems (TMS)?

The use of TMS makes it possible to re-use already translated text passages. In the case of repeated text, these systems warrant a high level of consistency and translation quality. At the same time, it is also possible to speed up the translation process and create cost savings. These cost advantages are passed on to our clients. You benefit from reduced word prices. The more work we do for a client, the larger the cost advantages, since we will create and maintain the corresponding TM databases for our clients.

How are Proverb services paid?

Upon the successful completion of your project, we will send you an invoice which can be paid via bank transfer.

Is it possible to translate confidential information?

We guarantee that your documents will be handled with the utmost confidentiality. Our specialist translators are experienced in handling sensitive information. All staff members are required to sign confidentiality agreements in which they commit to treat all information associated with a project in confidence.

Data with sensitive contents may safely be transmitted through our data exchange system.
