Per Hour Translation Pricing - Save up to 40%

At Straker we can link the economic cost of our translations to the time it takes to complete the translation - then focus on improving the efficiency of delivering that service (speed of translation), this in most cases has the outcome of significantly dropping the price to the client. Simply put, this means we can charge by the hour (not by the traditional per-word method) and use tools that make our translators really efficient and save our clients money and time. 

 

Microsoft Office Translations

Do you have a document in a Microsoft Office format such as Word, Excel or PowerPoint you need translated? We have developed sophisticated tools that make it very easy to import and export Office documents into and out of our translation management system. The upside to this is that you get your document back in the required target language with exactly the same formatting and we don't charge any project management or import/export costs so it takes less time and costs less money.
