Hi everyone,

I am a French native freelance and would like to offer my services to English translation agencies.
The problem is that i have no clue of how is the market there. Could anyone let me know what are the rates practiced in the UK in pounds?
Thanks for your help!!

Rates differ from one translator to other(to a great extend), therefore there is no useful feedback. It also depends on language pairs, fields etc..
In proz there is also a facility to enter your rates and see other rates(average) for Platinum members.
Some makes it visible and some not, you may browse through profiles to see visible rates of some translators (only to get a broad info)

My experience is that the rates paid in the UK are about the same as in Spain, France or Germany. Just take your EUR rate and convert it to GBP.

translation rates in the UK Apr 20, 2004

This is not official information. It is from an independent study and is a statistical overview of current rates for a standard translation (average complexity, 2000 words per working day).

In the United Kingdom:

English (British) to French (European) rates for freelancers:

min: 0.08 EUR
average: 0.09 EUR
max: 0.11 EUR

You can use this information as a guideline. Good luck.
