Hi Nage Oct 24, 2005

Thank you for coming to proz.
I think, as far as rates are concerned, it's quite a personal matter, so what I suggest is that anyone who wants to give Nage some pointers should reply to her in private.
Cheers
Angela

just an idea Oct 24, 2005

I'm not expecting to obtain translators rates, I would just like to have an idea of the market, what do usual agencies or translators charge to direct clients and what is the average of rate for translators. I'm just compairing it to the Spanish market, which I think is much cheaper. Thank you!

Hi Nage,

As an outsourcerer, this seems like a pointless question to me.
I guess you mean "what do agencies in "Country X" pay for translations in Y>Z?"

As I've posted earlier, it's a global market, and unless the agency required special country knowledge, we have the whole world to recruit freelancers from.

For EN>ES we use a freelancer in Argentina, for SV>EN we have a guy in Israel, for GE>SV there's an ex-pat lady in South Corea doing the job. You get the point.

So naturally, with the market globalization the rates equalize. If yo have a profile that is unique, the agency will pay your price irrespectively of where the agency is located.

OTOH, if your skills are widely available, most financially sound agencies will take someone cheaper, even if it has to cross the border.

In the global competition between agencies, the rates they pay tend to level out. If the agencies in India pays less than the agencies in England, naturally most freelancers will turn down jobs for the Indian agency which will force the Indian agency to either hike their rates or deliver inferior quality. And the end client know this.
