You know that most agencies ask freelancers to apply a series of discounts on their basic rates when translating with Trados. For instance:
100% matches
74-99% matches
60-74% matches
50-59% matches
Does anyone know what are realistic rates for these or other % matches?

Hi Andrés,
May I suggest you use the forum search - just enter "matches", and you'll find a large number of threads where this issue has been discussed (NB not just regarding Trados).

HTH, Ralf
