On what basis do you charge when the client comes back to you with changes to the original after the translation is done?

I'm talking here about some sentence deletions, modifications and additions throughout a 100-page document.

Charge/hour Nov 8, 2005

Hello Isabella!

Welcome to ProZ!!!

Most of our translators charge by the hour. They keep track of the number of hours they spent on the revision job and they invoice us a certain rate/hour for the work completed.

Best regards,

Kerstin Krämer

Inform the client in advance Nov 8, 2005

Hi
It's very important that the translator informs the client about the charge per each hour it takes to correct and/or edit the translated project. As long as those are its changes.
In the event that those changes were due to the translator's mistakes, then those changes should not be charged to the client.
