What if my source files are not in English?
No problem - just upload your files here and we will take a look and get back to you with a quote. We advise you to translate the source into English first, and then use the English files to translate into any other necessary languages.
How long will it take to translate my app?
This very much depends on the size of the app, the purchase level and the number of languages. Some languages will be quicker and some can be slower depending on the translator availability. For more accurate estimate please contact us.
What level should I choose?
We generally recommend Professional Level for most apps. If you have any difficulty in choosing the levels which best fits your project please contact us.
Can I choose different translation levels for different files?
Yes. You can translate your files at different levels so that you get the best mix of price and quality.
If I add some strings to a file that has already been translated do I have to pay for everything to be translated again?
You will only be charged for translation of the new content. When you add new files to a project, we search through your translation memory to find previously translated strings and populate them into your project. This process is called leveraging and means that you don't have to pay for translating the same string twice.
Note: Leveraging only works on exact string match. If you have changed anything in a string it will not be leveraged.
Will I be charged for symbols?
You won't be charged for any punctuation symbols, but if you have any bullets, currency symbols or pictograms in your app we will charge them as words. This is because the translators might need to change, position, or add a non-breaking space between these symbols.
For example the sign in English means 'OK', but in Finnish it means 'wrong', while in Japanese, Chinese and Korean it is just not perceived as 'OK' in general. So if your app contains any symbols, the translator will need to convert them to ·/· for Finnish and to for Japanese, Chinese and Korean.
