Hi,
There is a job offer at proz where the outsourcer asks for CV with rates.
And just below that there is a note with the following: "Please send a note of availability fees to ..."

Can anyone explain me what exactly does "availability fees" mean?
Thanks a lot.
Katia

I guess... May 18, 2006

Hi,

I'm just guessing, but I think it might mean how much would you charge if you book your time for them and then no translation project arrives.

HTH,
Kind regards,
Jerónimo

the word "and" -- availability and fees.

Well, it´s a relief to know that I´m not the only person that didn´t understand it at a glance...
Thank you to you all.
