Frequently Asked Questions about Dynamic Language Services

At Dynamic Language, a number of factors set us apart from our competition, including:
  • An unparalleled commitment to customer service
  • Careful and attentive project management
  • A streamlined, but flexible, workflow process
  • An ISO-certified Quality Management System
Together, these processes result in projects that consistently meet deadlines and exceed client expectations. Further, we deliver on our promises with projects at or under budget and stand behind our results. When terminology disagreements come up, we diligently work to find mutually agreeable solutions.
Also, unlike many of our competitors, we handle key functions in-house, such as project management, customer service, graphic design, and quality control. This strategy helps us deliver exceptional quality that’s fast and cost effective for our customers. Learn more about the Dynamic Difference.

We provide language services to everyone from individuals and small businesses to Fortune 100 corporations such as Boeing, Nordstrom, and Microsoft.

Dynamic Language strives to be as flexible as possible when it comes to payment. We accept the following payment methods:
  • Purchase Orders
  • Procurement systems (We are happy to work directly with your internal procurement system.)
  • Credit card (We can accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express)
  • Personal check
  • Cash
  • Wire transfer/EFT (upon request)
Individuals are required to pay a deposit prior to beginning the work. Additionally, if it is your first time using our services, we need to first approve the payment. You can either send us a check or provide credit card information. Your check or credit card will not be processed until all translation services are completed.
We never charge for quotes. They are always free.
Within the translation industry, it is standard to charge minimums. It would not be profitable for translators or agencies to charge the straight per-word calculation method for small projects. Dynamic's minimum charge is $60 to $100 depending on language and project.
Translation projects are priced on a per-word basis and the specific language rate. The translation minimum charge also varies by language. There are times when your project is 500 words and no minimum will be included due to the language pairs. Other times, your project may be 150 words but because the rate fo the language is so high, a minimum must be included. Project turnaround time is determined by the subject-matter. If the document has dense copywriting with very technical aspects the turnaround time will take longer.
We do not. All of our interpreters and translators are independent contractors and do not work in our Seattle, WA office.
