Quote calculator for translation jobs.
xl8 Quote allows freelance translators to calculate price for any job be it measured in words, pages or characters and offer instant quote to the potential client.
Just enter the number of words/pages/characters to be translated and you will immediately get:
— price for the whole job;
— price for the job at your minimal rate;
— estimated time the job will take;
— your hourly rate.
This simple tool was created by a freelance translator for his own use and was made available to everyone. This is work in progress and some functionality might be added if required by other people. Feel free to contact me if you want to suggest a new feature, report a bug or share your feedback.
How to use
1. On the Options tab set your average translation speed (words/day and words/hour) and how many words there are in average page for you language and how many characters in average word - these are different for each language.
2. Next set your standard and minimal rate on the bottom of the first tab.
3. Enter the amount of words/pages/characters for the job you want to estimate.
