FAQ

Are translation and interpreting services the same thing?

No, translation is an activity that is carried out in writing, whereas interpreting services are oral. Therefore, if you are dealing with a judgment, a deed of incorporation or a document in English or any other language to make into Italian, then you should ask for a translation service. On the contrary, if you have a business meeting with a foreign client or you are looking for a professional to assist you during a trade show, then you will need an interpreting service.

How much will our services cost?

As regards translation, the costs vary according to the text type and the urgency of the request. Generally, the cost is calculated based on the words of the source text. For a specialized text, the average translation time is 1250 words in 2 days, revision and terminology research included. For the most urgent requests and for works to be done in the weekends, a 30% will be added to the base price.

As regards interpreting services, texts revision and linguistic advisory services, an hourly rate will be applied according to the single requests. Also in this case, a 30% will be added to the base price for urgent requests or for works to be made during the weekends.

How can I pay for your services?

Payments are accepted by bank transfer or PayPal. Generally, for works worth less than 50€ we require an advance payment. On the contrary, for all the other works you will be asked to pay 30% of the total cost in advance, whereas the rest will be paid once the work has been delivered.

In case you want to call off a project, which has already been confirmed, you will be required to pay the amount due for all the translated material until then.

Is it possible to have an interpreter in a different country than the one where the members of Parolabis reside?

Of course! Parolabis is in Italy (Turin), Germany (Cologne) and Spain (Madrid). In case you need one of our interpreters for an event, which takes place in a different place than those mentioned, you just have to specify it in your service request form, detailing also the dates of the event. Once you have submitted your request, we will arrange the steps and the costs of the required service.
