The cost of producing a translated PDF is just 1-credit per page. With credits costing as little as 15¢ when purchased in bulk, a typical PDF page of 350 words could cost just ¢0.0004 per word!
For example, a 50-page PDF of around 15,000 words could add around €8 to the cost of your project. But how many hours of work would you save? Anyone who has tried editing a PDF will know that putting a translation back into a 50-page PDF would take hours without TransPDF. Isn't your time worth more than that?
