Are literary rates a lot lower than corporate translation rates for Dutch into English? I\'ve been asked to bid on a 130,000-word literary project. My standard rates are $0.10-$0.13/per word. How much less should I bid? It sounds like an interesting project, and the chance to be creative is worth a cut in pay to me.

My only experience was going through a rather challenging acceptance process for an academic encyclopedia project only to find out that the rate was EUR 0.05 per word. The company was Dutch as well as I recall.
