Word rate for Idiom projects
Thread poster: Chak

Mar 28, 2008

Is your new word rate the same for Idiom projects as it is for other projects (Trados, SDLX, Déjà vu, Catalyst, etc.)?

If not, how is it different?

For fuzzy matching in Idiom, what percentage of your new word rate do you charge for the following fuzzy match percentages?
60 – 84%
85 – 94%
95 – 99%
ICE Matches

I don't charge for 100% and ICE Mar 30, 2008

But my clients generally tell me to filter out ICE and 100% matches anyway, so even if I did edit or review them, I wouldn't be able to change them. Do your clients allow/request you to make changes to 100% and ICE? If so, I would say charge the same for ICE as you would charge for 100%, even though ICE matches are supposed to be more trustworthy.

Thank you Samuel, and what percentage do you charge for the rest of the table?
