If you order translation services for the first time, you may wonder how to estimate the scope of translation and its cost. Truth is, these are very important questions to ask. Different countries use different units of measurement to estimate the scope and cost of translation. In Europe, a standard translation page equals 1,800 characters with spaces, i.e., the translation cost is based on the number of characters with spaces in the source text, which you can always check using any word counter application. Easy as 1-2-3!
