Pricing for interpreters and translators in the United States

Interpreter vs Translator Pricing

The rates for an interpreter versus translator are calculated differently. Interpreter services are typically time-based (by the minute, hour, etc.) whereas translations are priced by the word to be translated. For example, most interpretation appointments are scheduled to fit into the client’s daily or weekly agenda. Requests for interpreters are typically for appointments, meetings, interviews and other situations that are best measured by time.

In contrast, document translation is done remotely, with an established due date. It is more cost effective to price per word by language, especially since translators do not all work at the same pace. This practice equalizes the free schedule for all translation teams.
