How are your prices calculated?
Elia Enterprises has a minimum charge of $125 USD for small projects with less than 500 words.  For larger projects, our prices are calculated based on a set of rates.

Do I have to pay for a quote?
No, all quotations are provided free of charge.

Who will translate my document?
All projects are translated by qualified professionals carried out by translators working only in subjects which match their qualifications and experience and who are translating exclusively into their native language. All our professional translators are educated with a University degree, writers, capable of producing texts that read well in the target language. All of them have at least five years’ professional experience. 

Do you have in-house translators?
Yes. The benefit with in-house translators is that they act of supervisors. We place projects with our strategic partner organizations.

Can you download my website for quotation?
We can, however we prefer to receive the source files on CD or by email. This ensures we are working from the latest version of your site.

What languages can you translate into?
Elia Enterprises translates into and out of over 150 languages.

What’s the difference between translation and interpreting?
Essentially, translation is the WRITTEN word whereas interpreting is SPOKEN.

How quickly can you deliver?
As a rule of thumb a good translator can translate and proofread approximately 1,500 words per working day. However the first 1,500 words take a bit longer, say 2 working days, and account must be taken of time required for research, proofreading and oversight. Turnaround also depends on our projects scheduled.

Who are some of your clients?
MGM Mirage Corporation, Media and Marketing Group, Las Vegas Water District, within others. Please refer to the Client List in this Webpage. 

How do I know my material will remain confidential?
