Hello dear colleagues,

I'm planning to increase my translation and revision rates (English and German to French) in 2020 and for that I'd like to create a price list to send to my clients.

- Does someone has a template they could share and also some tips on what I should include?
- Also, how do you approach clients with increased rates?

Thank you!

Please get in touch with me (bpt.trad@gmail.com) as I don't mind sharing my price list with you. For my long-standing customers my rates were raised 3/4 years ago and I intend to continue to serve my existing client base at current prices. I have been feeling the pressure to lower my rates from some potential clients: that’s one of the reasons why I now prefer to quote on a per-project basis rather than a per-word basis.

Sometimes I got the same feeling, so I had a search what my colleagues (and 'so called colleagues') are asking, just to know what I am up against.

Please see: https://www.translationdirectory.com/translators/english_dutch.php (you can also search on other language pairs!)
