Hi!I´m from Argentina I´m new here and I have a doubt, well.... many of them in fact..haha . I need to know how do I charge a comic translation? It´s English into Spanish and I don´t know if I have to charge per word or by page. . I don´t know if it´s ok to write a new topic, because it´s a question mostly for my Argentinian mates, since I have to charge it in pesos.Thank you very much!!!!

Usual rate Apr 11, 2008

Hi Nadia,

Sorry, I'm not from Argentina. But I did translate several comics in the past, and I always charged my usual rate (source language). That should work just fine.

I agree, charge per word Apr 11, 2008

I always try to charge per word. It's a fair deal for both client and translator.
