Hi. I am a Japanese-Thai interpreter.

I have registered as a free user at proz.com since April but have not seached for a job since then. Today a translation company contacted me. They asked me to send my CV including my rate per 1000 words. As a beginner, I have no idea how much I should charge my customer. I am looking forward to your suggestions. Thank you

Try the rates calculator Jul 12, 2006

In addition to asking around, you might try our rates calculator. http://www.proz.com/ratecalculator
As you gain experience translating, you should be monitoring your productivity. The calculator would help you to set rates that would allow you to achieve your desired income, depending on your productivity. It also helps to remind you of things you should not forget when setting your pricing, such as costs and holidays, etc.

Good luck and welcome to ProZ.com.
