Example Calculation Amortization of Personal Translator Net 20

Higher quality translations in a shorter time  An investment that quickly pays for itself

The LISA report (LISA: The Localization Industry Standards Association) makes a strong case for the use of automatic translation in large companies.

The Case Study results indicate a ROI of 544 % and an amortisation period of 2 months.

According to the Fraunhofer Institute, using Personal Translator Professional results in a time saving of 40%. The following example calculations illustrate what this means in concrete terms:

Example calculation:

Investment for a Personal Translator Net 20 for 10 employees: 1.294 €
Daily translation effort 15 min.: 10 employees x 15 min. = 150 min./month
Monthly translation effort: 150 min x 20 days = 50 h/month
Time saving according to the survey of the Fraunhofer Institute: 40 %
Monthly time saving: 20 h
Assumed hourly wages: 35,- €
Monthly cost saving: 700,- €
Amortization: Within 2 months


A company acquires the basic version of Personal Translator Net 20 for 10 members of staff.
The investment costs are 1.294,- €.

If the 10 members of staff (clerks, managers, secretaries, etc.) are involved with translation of some kind (for example, looking up a word, translating an English webpage into German, or writing an e-mail in German), for an average of 15 minutes each day, then this gives the following monthly savings potential:
10 members of staff * 15 mins * 20 days * 40 % saving = 20 hours
Based on an average hourly rate of 35,- € for each member of staff, this corresponds to a monthly cost saving of
20 hours *  35,- € = 700,- €
This means that the investment will have paid for itself in two months!
