for term and document validation. I have recd. a long document with a request to validate it against native touch and feel. What should I charge, the outsourcer is not coming out with pricing. Thank you for all helping hints. Best Brandis

Pricing on an hourly basis. The metrics are 1500 - 1800 words/hour.

Why should he? Jun 12, 2006

the outsourcer is not coming out with pricing.

He waits for your quote, counting on your experience as a translator. Which is normal. Do you go to the haridresser saying: can you cut my hair for $5?

Of course, your quote will be too expensive, whatever you'll be saying. Which is not normal, but current practice.

Note: in some countries (France for instance), outsourcers don't even have the right to give orders about rates to a self-employed person.
