no right prices Nov 29, 2009

Hello Silvia,

As you can find in several other topics about this, there are no approximate rates to charge.

The question you must ask is "how much do I want to earn monthly?"

You can even use the Proz Rate Calculator here http://www.proz.com/?sp=rate_calc

Now, do you want to be a low cost translator and work 12 hours per day or charge the double price and work 6? That's a matter of what you want.

You will find work from US$0.01 to US$0.15, don't worry. See what you want!

Lucas

Hi, Silvia: Take a look to the survey I did a few weeks ago: www.proz.com/forum/money_matters/151528-translation_prices_survey.html#1269443. Middle prices range is from 0.06 €(low limit) to 0.12 € (high limit), at least in Europe.

Consistently, I would recommend you not to accept any work under the low limit. But, of course, I respect that this will depend on your personal situation and decisión.

ProZ.com Rates table Nov 29, 2009

Hi Silvia

I'm not sure whether this feature is only visible to paying members or not - it isn't included on the detailed list of member benefits, so you could try.

Select the "Tools" tab above, then Rates Calculator, then the Rates tab, top right.

Good luck
