For example, you have 150 segments and the source text has 1500 words, then you have an average of 10 words par segment. You can then charge 10 times your rate per word for one segment.
Well, I think it's too high to charge for simple alignment of a segment the same rate I would charge for its translation.
So I just calculated from my previous experience: divided quantity of segments in previous job by total number of hours - this gives me quantity of segments I do in one hour. And since I have my hourly rate, I can calculate rate per one segment.
That's a good way too!
I see now that I was not clear enough in my posting : I meant your proofreading rate per word (mine is about 1/3 of my translation rate per word, though I prefer to charge per hour for proofreading too...).
