Hello there,

I'm Simone and new here .. hence the somewhat-stupid question (sorry!):

I'm a certified translator but have only translatled in-house so far and am not sure what the current commercial rates are.
I just don't want to make a mistake and undercut/overcharge.

I'm based in the UK, specialised in (general) technical texts such as manuals and general translations (literature). I'm not sure on my "words per day" capacity yet either but need somewhere to start with.

Would anyone be so kind as to give me some advise? It'd be greatly appreciated -many thanks !!

Warm wishes,
Simone
