As already presented in our post Prices Per Source Word Count, by using a good budget, as clear and detailed as possible, you can set the final price that is best for closing the project for translation services.
We have seen that, depending on the translation language pair, there may be expansion or contraction of the number of words in the translation.
In our first article we analyzed translations to and from English, and to and from Spanish, Portuguese (Europe and Brazil), French, German and Italian.
Today we will provide estimates on the percentage of contraction or expansion of the number of words of translation to and from English, when working with Danish, Finnish, Greek, Norwegian and Swedish:
English to Danish: 10-15% contraction
English to Finnish: 25-30% contraction
English to Greek: 5-10% expansion
English to Norwegian: 5-10% contraction
English to Swedish: 10% contraction
Danish to English: 10-15% expansion
Finnish to English: 30-40% expansion
Greek to English: 10-20% expansion (general texts) / / 10% contraction (technical materials)
Norwegian to English: 5-10% expansion
Swedish to English: 10% expansion
