Hello there,
I have been asked to carry out some Italian to English translations of legal documents related to property sales and purchases in my local area in Italy. I am quite clear on the fee for the translations, however, I have been asked to be present in the solicitor's office for the final reading and signing of the documents. Can anybody give me an idea as to how much I should charge for this particular service? I honestly have no idea.
Thanks in advance

Unless you are bound statutory fees for these services, charge for your time based on what you would have earned translating rather traveling to/from and being at the attorney's office.

Thank you for your reply, that's very helpful. So you don't think I should have a separate charge for traveling expenses? I have to drive 1 hour to go to the main city where the solicitor's office is located.
