Hello all,

I would like an update as to whether rates paid by Canadian agencies are comparable to those paid by agencies in the U.S. Is the current market in Canada still bearing rates on the higher end of the spectrum?

Also, is there anything I should consider as far as payment methods? Would it be a good idea to set slightly higher rates to take into account currency exchange fees?

Any information/advice will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Canadian rates Jul 30, 2003

I have not worked for many agencies in Canada, so I don't have a lot of grounds for comparison. I consider 15 cents/word a good rate (about 10 cents US). Of course your price also depends on the language combination and the length and difficulty of the text. I would certainly calculate in the exchange rate when quoting a price.
