Why so many certified translation companies charge certified rush rates?

It’s really interesting to know the number of ways in which many certified translation companies charge certified rush rates: some translators don’t charge rush rates, at the same time others do charge extra. Some translators ignore rush rates for their devoted clients, while others apply rush charges to every client. Some charge rush rates for translations due in less than 24 hours, while others consider a rush job to be a project needing the translation of more than 2,500 words per day.

Why certified translation companies charge more?

Just to make a point, we are an ATA certified translation company and we never charge certified rush rates, even if you need your translation in a hurry, you will still have to pay our standard price, which you can calculate with our notarized and certified translation tool.

Why are certified rush rates being charged?

Certified rush rates can and will be charged for a number of reasons and this differs broadly among translators. Sometimes such rates are charged by certified translation companies just to deal with the difficulty and stress of having to postpone their current projects. Sometimes translators are business persons that take advantage of the situation.

Sometimes it is charged for the overtime in order to finish the translation work. It actually may be more suitable to think of these certified rush rates as overtime rates.

If you think about it, the translators are almost certainly not translating any faster. In fact, you don’t want them translate fast and miss any sort of important steps during translation. They are simply working more than normal days to make sure the job is done on time. In a world where it is standard practice to pay overtime to regular and contract employees, why shouldn’t translators be paid the same?

Consequences of rush rates

Sometimes, certified rush rates could be measured as an inconvenience charge. Other times, it may be needed to charge an extra fee in order to get specific translators on your project. If there is no price for throwing last-minute requests at translators, then what inspiration is there for certified translation companies to go through the work of creating schedules and negotiating timelines?

Nothing could be better in life when rushed. Quality will be the first and most obvious thing to bear when you have to rush a project. Important steps may be skipped completely. You probably won’t be able to get in touch with your ideal translator on short notice, so the translation could be done by someone not as familiar with the project. In addition, if rush projects become a returning topic, translators may finally get tired of the stress and chose to work on current projects for other clients.
