    Hello,
    I have to translate a website from german to english. But I can't find a cheap translation service. The services I found, costs more than to let write a new article in english.
    So do you know a cheap translation service? The quality hasn't to be professionel.

    Thanks for your answers.

    You could use services on fiverr. Found some translators there but never tested anyone.

    Yes, thats maybe the best idea. Maybe it is a little complicated to submit only articles with 500 words, but $5 for 500 words is okay.

    For sure you will get a good translation service from german into english on Fiverr.

    500 Words / 4 USD for the seller = 0,008 / word

    Good luck.

    Cheap<>Good. I just want a readable text. And it isn't really hard to translate a text if you know both languages.

    You are right, its not hard to translate german into english or back, but for this amount (0.008) you get <<<< quality

    For this wordprice you get only 3rd world writer/translator, and if you only like a "readable" text and no quality needed, use googletranslator/promt - its the same effect.

    German is a expensive language :)

    is free, "readable" but all this kind of software is "worthless" (my opinion) to translate sites/articles etc.

    You only can use this kind of software for translate some words or some sentences, for a better understanding.

    Automatic translations aren't really readable...

    Try your luck on freelancer/odesk, but be aware of the same "software" translators.

    Just get some freelancer from Odesk or Vworker as that will work best. But the price will be higher.
