I am just getting started as a freelancer in the U.S. My native language is German, second language is Spanish. I am clueless regarding rates per word/page/flat rate. How much can I charge as a beginner? And what are the "usual" rates? My expertise is general conversation / tourism - travel / computers.

Rate calculator May 14, 2007

Hi "Ch",
Have you looked at the ProZ.com rate calculator? The tool is admittedly simplistic, but useful to get an idea.

Best regards,
Ralf

US or foreign clients? May 14, 2007

It also depends whether you will be working for US or German/other non-US clients. In the US, the standard count is by word, while in Germany it is by line.
