Hi there,

I have been offered a job as a remote translator from Russian into English by a large Russian company. The texts are mostly PR related with some metallurgy also involved. The workload is 10 pages per day 5 days a week + some urgent one-off translations. I am bi-lingual in the two languages, have around 2-2.5 years experience generally and about a year in the field.

I have a number of questions..
First of all I have no idea how much I can expect to be paid and therefore how much I should ask for - I have always worked freelance.
Secondly, I have no idea how I should ask to be paid - per word, per page, per symbol, per month...Given the fact that its full time, I was thinking maybe a monthly salary + per page/word for urgent translations?

Finally, any advice on how to get my salary from Moscow to me in the UK at the lowest cost would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Kostya (I hope you don't mind this nickname, but if you do, sorry, it's just that my brother was Kostya and I just love the name),
you might want to repeat your posting in the Russian forum, I'm sure you will get more responses.
