I have signed up with a couple of agencies, but I have also a small foreign language tuition business and had thought of having translation directly for my students/clients as an added feature to my website/business.
Obviously I have a set of fees for jobs I get from agencies, do I have to change the fees I would charge if I get a job directly from "an end user". Some of my students might ask for translations of their letters from banks, contracts, etc. What is the common practice? Charging a fee to the agency and a higher fee to the "end user"?

Hi Morejudo,
Have you checked the forum search? There have been a few discussions on this issue, the most recent one just a couple of weeks ago.

Of course, there may be specific factors in the UK, but the general principle would be similar elsewhere, I think.

Best regards,
Ralf
