Pricing and Payment
The price of commodity housing can be calculated in terms of either total price or unit price. Total price can be valued in terms of an apartment, set or unit. In this case, price adjustment would not be carried out, regardless of whether there is a deviation between the actual area and the contractual area of commodity housing. Unit price is charged on the area of commodity housing, which falls into three types of areas, floor area, indoor construction area and usable area.

不论商品房实际面积与约定是否存在误差,均不对其价格进行调整。单价是按商品房面积计价,可分为依建筑面积计价、依套内建筑面积计价和依使用面积计价三种方式。

Total price can be valued in terms of an apartment, set or unit, in which case a price adjustment would not be carried out, regardless of whether there is a deviation between the actual area and the contractual/stipulated area of commodity housing. Unit price is calculated based on the area of commodity housing, which falls into three types of areas, floor area, indoor construction area and usable area.

Excellent translation!!! Looking forward to your next one! Are you currently studying for NAATI accreditation?

Hi Jared,

Thank you for the corrections. I found them very helpful, and I always learn a lot from your translation topic and the corrections that you provided.
I do currently study for NAATI accreditation. Actually, I am doing my master’s degree in translating and interpreting. So, I really appreciate for the translation practices that you provide. Also, I think the corrections are very important. We may do lots of practices but without any corrections or advice for better versions, which in fact contribute little to our progress in translating. After all, high quality of quantitative changes can bring about the same degree of qualitative changes.

So, thank you for your time and encouragement. I will keep moving and learning. (〃’▽’〃)

Hi Wenda,

Really glad to hear you enjoy the translation practice.

Like you said, feedback is probably the most important thing. Anyone can translate all day, but if there is no feedback then it’s hard to improve.

Keep up the good work 🙂

Ⅲ. Price and Ways of Payment
There are two kinds of price for commercial housing, namely, the unit price and total price. Total price can be calculated based on the building, apartment or unit. Whether there is any difference between the contract and real area of the housing, the price will not be changed. The unit price is calculated based on the area of the housing, which includes the calculation by gross floor area, gross internal area and usable floor area.

Ⅲ. Price and Payment Method
There are two kinds of price calculations for commercial housing, namely, unit price and total price. Total price can be calculated based on the building, apartment or unit. Where any differences exist between the contractual and actual area of the housing, the price will not be adjusted. The unit price is calculated based on the area of the housing, which can be calculated by floor area, internal area and usable floor area.

Notes:
“Payment method” sounds more formal in these types of documents instead of “ways of payment” which sounds more casual.
you used “namely” really well here!
“Whether there is any difference…” this doesn’t sound bad grammatically but we would never say it like this. Please see my correction above.
“adjusted” sounds better than “changed” here.

Really good Chinese to English translation skills! Looking forward to your next one.

III. PRICES AND PAYMENT METHODS
Real estate prices consist of prices per square meter and the total prices. The total prices can be calculated on Building, ?? or Unit. Even if there is difference between the actual property area and the agreed one, the price is not negotiable. Prices per square meter are calculated on real estate areas, including building area, room building area and use area.
