If you’ve shopped for translation services in the past and experienced sticker shock, you’re not alone. Many people go into the process with certain expectations about what translations should cost without fully understanding what they are purchasing and why. Without this knowledge, it’s no wonder that many companies approach the process of shopping for language services as they would any other commodity. 

But the truth is, not all translation solutions are created equal, and it’s important to know what you’re getting—and what you’re NOT getting—from each language service provider (LSP) you speak to. If a price quote seems too good to be true, it probably is. But how do you know for sure?
