I'm seeking your advice on determining the fees of translating a glossary for an insurance company. It's part of a larger file and obviously, it will take miore time compared to other documents in this file.
How would I calculate fees, baring in mind that hourly rates are not usually applied in the Middle East?
Many thanks for your advice
Points of consideration:
- Is the glossary going to be printed/published? If so, you should ask for a share in copyright or consider that when setting your fees.
- You can apply hourly rates in ME. I usually do for such tasks and it works fine.
- Since glossary material is not a streaming text and takes more time than usual, you can apply your normal translation rate + (x% which represents your estimation of additional time) in case you can not apply hourly rate.
