Dear Colleagues,

My friend was asked to provide edition rates. He is an English-Russian translator, but never made editing. Could you please tell me how much edition rates are.
What does it depend on?

Regards,
Ekaterina

Depends. Apr 5, 2006

Hello,

It depends, but usually about 1/3 to 1/2 of translating rates...

Best,

Mar

Depends on what kind of editing, too Apr 5, 2006

If the editing is major, then your friend might have to charge as much as for translating. It is worth asking for a sample of the texts for you to evaluate them, which can also help in selling yourself as a professional.

Well, if you charge based on the source text for a translation, for editing you should consider the translated text as your source text.

Does this answer your question?

I uderstand this as follows: Apr 6, 2006

If i charge for example, USD10 per 100 source words when translating, i will charge USD 5 per 100 words for editing. i refer to idea re 1/3 1/2. Am i right?
