Depends on the definition of "page" Mar 25, 2003

Sounds terribly cheap to me. But you would need to provide some more detail to judge it; also, this should probably be moved to \"Business Issues\". Claudia?

But before that my opinion:

In Chile it\'s usual to count in pages, and a standard page has 250 words. So in fact it\'s the same, as you count words and then change to pages.

But if I\'m not wrong this would mean 0,0125 euros/word!

You're biting off three and a half months of work Mar 25, 2003

at average production rates, by Claudia\'s calculation. You live in Spain: if this is done properly, you\'ll be paying at least 600 euro in Social Security (another 600 if they find out about the half-month). Taxes are calculated over the 2,500. Does this still sound expensive?

Depends on the quality of the translation Mar 28, 2003

If you are a talented and skilled translator translating into your mother tongue (or equivalent) the price is ridiculously low, if you\'re not it would be a waste of € 2,500.
