As you can see, the previous list is merely a small selection of the subject matters that we can find on a daily basis in the world of translations. Given that this type of translation requires specialists, different rates are applied to those used for standard translations. As well as this, the time needed to carry out the translation is determined by its complexity and the amount of time required for research into terminology.
