    Hey BHW.

    Quick question. I'm in the process of getting good native german copywriters in for some projects but I have no idea what the market price is for German copywriters.

    Can someone help me with advice? Got some low price quotes and also got some steep price quotes (0.08Euro/word which would amount to 48Euro for a 600 word article).

    Can some German IMer shed some light onto this?

    Thanks :D

    A good German writer is probably going to cost slightly more than a good English writer just because it's not English and there are fewer of them - that's what I've found at least - 48 euro or ~$50 for 600 words is pretty expected if it's real content and not junk web content, hard to say if that's cheap/expensive in the grand scheme of things without knowing the specifics of your project though, also are you sure you should be looking at copywriters for 600 word articles? That would fall more under regular writing no?

    OP one other thing to consider. How will you check quality? Do you speak German yourself? Cuz if you run it through an automatic translator, you won't be able to find specific errors that will turn off a native speaker, you might be paying top dollar for a piece of writing that has errors. A lot of my international clients hired an English copywriter (me) so they knew what the copy looked like, then used a translation agency when they needed to branch out to new languages. Just a thought. Again not sure what the scale of the project is...

    You should try the german version of textbroker, and you can select quality and price. I can help you with strong german links if you need.

    Hi! Mate,
    If you needed articles on German language then please try to add in fb groups (native Germany writers group). There you'll found experienced writers. I have no idea and about German articles but I ordered few chines articles. That's way I'm telling so.
    If you wanted to invest 48 euro for 600 words then you'll found better writers.
    If you have fiverr/ freelancer.com or upwork account then you can get these articles within 2 or 3 days. There you'll found experienced content writers. $10 per 600 words will be enough for that.
    If you failed then please reply here. I'll help you much.
