What is a standard page?

Standard page (abbrev. SP) means a standardized page containing 1,800 characters (including spaces). The constant 1,800 is defined by the ISO 690 standard.

Standard page in practice: In English, one SP corresponds to approx. 250 words, though the number of words can vary depending on the language or content.

The SP concept is used to determine the length of a text or a document. It is particularly useful in translations, translation revisions, proofreading, or copywriting.

Simply divide the number of characters (including spaces) in your text by 1,800 to determine the SP count.

How much does it cost to translate one page?

The price of a translation is usually determined by the length of a translated text, which may differ from the length of a source text.

Moreover, the price of a translation usually depends on the delivery date and language combination. Translations to English and German tend to be slightly cheaper than translations to less commonly-used languages.
