I have never done any proofreading but am frequently asked for my daily capacity when filling out profiles and registration forms. can you tell me what average daily capacity would be for French-English and Italian-English.

Thank you

My technical translation capacity is about 2500-3000 words/day, so I usually say 10,000 words for proofreading. However, if an actual job is proposed you should request a sample: your rate will depend critically on the degree of difficuty. Proofreading can range from simply correcting spelling and punctuation, to complete re-writing.



Good luck!
