I need to do an estimate to translate a brochure from English & Spanish.
Do you find this normal if I invoice 0.13€ for Spanish and 0.14€ per word fro English ?
Are the rates I offer normal rates ?

Thanks for your answers and advices.

Different rates Feb 7, 2007

I cannot say if your rates are "normal" in matter of how high they are, but I do charge differently for different lang pairs too. The "less common" are more expencive.

Who is it for? Feb 7, 2007

1. Are you translating for an agency or directly for a client? Your rates are a tad high for an agency, normal for an end client.

2. Are you expected to deliver similar to the linguistic style of the brochure which I assume is written by an advertising agency, or will your translation be reworked by a copyright author? i.e. are you expected to create slogans and buzz words?

3. What is the going rate for your pair, for this type of work? i.e. what is the competition charging.

4. Is this a regular customer, or do you expect them to be one? You may consider introductory rates just to develop a feeling for them and their business potential.

Best of luck
Faruk
