Frequently asked questions

How much does eLearning translation cost?

Our eLearning translation services are priced based on the following factors: translation costs per word; engineering, audio, and testing services per hour; and voiceover talent per minute of recording.

Translation costs vary by language, typically corresponding to the cost of living in the target countries (for example, translation into Simplified Chinese is about a third of the cost of translation into Swedish). Contact us for a free quote.

Can my files be translated into any language?

Yes. While some learning management systems are not fully compatible with bi-directional languages and extended character sets (causing problems for Arabic, Hebrew, and Asian languages), our engineers can create customized solutions and provide advice on tools and workarounds to support the translation of your content into any language.

How many courses can you translate at once? How long does it take?

That’s up to you. We can accommodate projects of almost any size by scaling your translation team (some projects have over 100 translators per language). Our translators work simultaneously, so the number of target languages won’t impact your timeline.

If it’s determined to be a good fit for your content, we can also use post-edited machine translation to enhance our human translators’ output and accommodate rapid timelines.

What learning management systems and file types do you use?

SimulTrans supports the most popular authoring tools for eLearning, training, and media content.

Tools we frequently work with include Adobe Premiere, Adobe Captivate, Articulate Rise 360, and Articulate Storyline 360, along with many others. File types we commonly work with include SCORM, XLIFF, xAPI, SRT, VTT, STORY, and many more.

If you’re using proprietary tools, our engineers will work with you to test different file formats and determine which will be most efficient for translation.
