English term or phrase: Charging for power point translation
What is the consensus for power point translation fees? Obviously charging by the word is not possible.

Explanation:
Hi Billy,

I am afraid that forum is a better place for you to get proper answers.

Just for your info, I work out a quote by using my rate per word, and then I add a dollar amount per slide.

agree  Angus Woo: It's better to discuss this in private. BTW, it's against the forum's rule to discuss rates.

agree  Wenjer Leuschel: With Angus. On what it is mostly lied about? Exactly! Money and sex. So, no discussion about rates. Either you got a good one or a bad one.

Explanation:
1.

U can charged the PP file by page, as most common way in the mainland.

2. U can charged the PP file by words.

the precise way is copy the text into the word to get the number of the words.

a way of not so precise is see the attribute of the file by right-click the PP file,the number is not so precise, but you can know the approcimate number
