Dear Colleagues:

I would be extremely grateful if you could share with me per word of English rates for Arabic copywriting. I have an English text which I am working from and it is a website content. I am a translator with some copywriting background.

Helpful tips would be much appreciated.

Salam Mouchira,
Copywriting is still a creative writing, even if you're using an existing text to obtain basic information and go from there.
There isn't a specific rate for copywriting, just as there isn't one for translating, but bare in mind that what you're doing now is more time consuming, and requires more effort, than a straight-forward translation. And it does involve translating in the process, as well. Therefore, charging a higher rate (Per word) than your regular translating rate would be quite logical, and even expected.
There's also the option of charging per hour.

Good luck,
