No such standard! Dec 26, 2004

Unfortunately, there is no such standard. And the range is quite broad.

I advise you to take a quick look at members'profile pages.
Another way is to review community rates:

For English-Turkish see:

For Turkish-English see:

By the way, both rates tend to be normally distributed with an approximately bell shape! Good statistics!

The pages Selçuk links to can only be viewed by Platinum members, I'm afraid, in which case they won't help fhargun.

On the other hand, as talking about rates is not allowed in the forums area, maybe searching member pages, job postings, and agency websites will provide a better idea, as well as contacting freelancers that you know on a one-on-one basis.

Good luck!
