local_atm Pricing

Team Pricing

SDL Managed Translation is only available as a Cloud Service. The typical deal size falls in the $20,000 – $50,000 range.
For larger enterprises with more complex requirements, the price is provided on request based on system throughput, the number of users and the modules and connectors required. Hosting is included in the license fee. A surcharge applies for customers requiring dedicated infrastructure, multiple environments, or for hosting to be provided from a specific geographic region. The license fee also includes a Managed Service element for customers that want to outsource the ownership and maintenance of their system to SDL.

Contact SDL directly for pricing options.
