Hi,
Can anyone give me some advise on UK rates for agencies for:
- translations (per 1000 words)
- proofreading (per 1000 words or per hour)
- minimum charge for small projects
I have worked for US agencies on a per source word basis, but have no idea how to charge per 1000 words in Pounds.

Thank you.

My suggestions Sep 6, 2008

Others may have other ideas, but I would say, for Spanish:

GBP60-65 per 1000 words

GBP20-25 minimum charge

GBP20-25 per hour for proofreading.

I would never charge per 1000 words for proofreading, you never know how long it might take.

I work from Russian so my charges are a bit higher, & the above estimates are based on target word count. It makes a big difference between Russian and English whether it is target or source word count, but I shouldn't think it would between Spanish & English.
