My rate per word depends on the actual amount of hours I have to put into the translation. A few examples:

I just completed a legal contract of 8,500 words from Scottish into Danish. My rate per word amounted to 0.35 USD per word, as I had to put 100 hours into the translation, due to challenging Scottish legal content. Other jobs translate at 0.15 cents per word. So, it all depends on the time I need to put into the translation, depending on the level of complexity. My hourly rate amounts to 39 USD, which is the average rate for English into Danish translations according to a survey carried out by Please submit your actual assignment, and I will be pleased to give you an accurate quote.
