A publishing company has offered me a rate of 18 euros per 1,000 words. Do you think it is too low? What are the most common rates for translation of books?

Thanks in advance.

How long is it going to take you to translate 1,000 words? How much do you think you should earn in that time?

I think you will find that 18 Euros is not even close to the answer.
