I have been asked to quote for translating a 55,000 word book about a semi-technical subject with which I am reasonably familiar.
They are prepared to give me a couple of months to do it.
Is 0.06 euros/word about right?
Is there a usual procedure for proof reading? i.e. am I or the client expected to pay someone else to proof read it?
