Price for writing
Thread poster: xxxwonita
Lately a client wants me to write some marketing materials for him in Chinese. I have no idea how to charge for writing based on the number of words. I don’t want to charge per hour, because jobs like this will take as many hours as the client gives me.
Given I translate for 50 Cents per word in the source language, how much should I charge per word for writing a text? In translating from English/German into Chinese, the number of the words in the target language can be twice as many/much (I'm not sure which word is correct here) as in the source. Roughly, I can calculate 200 Chinese words/characters out of 100 German/English words.
Thank you in advance.
