Hi,

I've been contacted by a contract publisher in the UK who is trying to pull together a team of language sub-editors for a large amount of editing work on producing two 128pp and two 38pp brochures that will need editing both in Word and Quark.

A natural question here is the rate of pay on offer. So I'm seeking advice on how to draw up a clear agreement about what the deal involves and help working out what to charge.

If any of you with experience in this business know of a contract/agreement which records the facts by putting it in writing, I'd be interested in knowing what its recommendations to sub-editors/translators are.

I'm looking forward to reading any feedback from you.

Thank you,

Claudio
