For Money: Human Translation on Click2Translate.com
When it comes to more high-quality, human translation, you cannot get it free from FreeTranslation.com. If you want a person to translate your text/website/paper/other document for you, you will have to pay for it. But at least you can get a free bid on FreeTranslation.com, which gives you an idea how much you can expect to spend to have a translation made of your material. Once you click to get a bid, though, you are actually transferred to the sister site Click2Translate.com.
The professional, human translation services on Click2Translate.com are offered for a plethora of languages: Afrikaans, Albanian, Arabic, Armenian, Bengali (Bangla), Bosnian, Bulgarian, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Farsi, Finnish, French (Canada and France varieties), German (Austria and Germany varieties), Greek, Gujarati, Hebrew, Hindi, Hmong, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Kazakh, Korean, Kurdish, Latvian (Lettish), Lithuanian, Macedonian, Malay, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil and Portugal varieties), Punjabi, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Sesotho, Slovak, Slovenian, Somali, Spanish (Latin America and Spain varieties), Swahili, Swedish, Tagalog, Tamil, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Urdu, Vietnamese, Welsh and Zulu.
To get an estimate for translation of a document, click on the "Professional Translation" tab. Indicate whether the text is "Personal," "Business (Standard)," or "Business (Specialist)." Upload the document you wish to translate (hint: save the document in rich text format to preclude any problems with uploading it). Indicate which language you wish to translate from, and which language you want to translate into. At this point, you will be transferred to the Click2Translate.com website, where you will see a bid for "Translation Only" and a bid for "Translation and Proof."
The rates will vary, depending on the length of the document, the technicality of the language, and the language you are translating into. To translate this article into Thai, I was given a bid of $50.00 - $60.00.
