English term or phrase: Fuzzy matches rates
Hello, everyone. This is not a question about any term. I just would like to know if any of you knows how much is the usual rate in the USA for translations done with Trados, i.e., how much to charge for 100% matches and for fuzzy matches. The translations is going to be from English to Spanish. I'd appreciate any input on this. Thanks.

I think the best source for this info is TW_users, a forum for Trados Workbench users. This is a much debated issue, and you can get the latest info (as well as extremely valuable tips on the use of the tool) by joining the group at

Hi! a well known translation agency in the USA pays 25% for 100% matches and repetitions, 50% for 84-99% matches and 100% for the rest. I found that the 25% is very low considering that you always have to check and review everything.
I hope it helps you.
