KoDeJa GmbH introduction

It is important in international cooperation to understand each other and to draw the right conclusions in business matters. Is a business partner amenable to me and can I expect a positive decision?

About pricing

About pricing

We do not shy away from price comparison.

Certainly you have made the experience that service providers like translators and consultants reveal their prices only upon request. This makes it difficult to calculate for many companies. For urgent topics you must request at companies, which is time consuming. Not to mention the personnel and financial costs of the search and enquiry.

Why do we publish our prices at KoDeJa.de? Thus, we provide our customers with transparency and honesty. A it is always a time gain to get an overview of the price range from the beginning. This creates planning security with us as a reliable partner. And we can always talk about additional wishes, which are not described in our services.

The level of prices? As much as our services are worth. Because we want to deliver good work not only once, but also in the long term and permanently. For added value of our customers. Totally in the spirit of an honest businessman.
