Hi, everyone!
I've just finished translating a huge project - environmental computer program. The customer asked me also to help with the figures (lots of them) - to insert Russian text instead of English. I use Corel Paint Shop for it. There is a lot of work and it is very time-consuming. Lots of cutting and inserting plus to translating. Do you have an idea what are the normal rates for this kind of work as compared to translation rates?
Thank you in advance!

Hourly rate Apr 10, 2008

This isn't normal translation work, since your output cannot be calculated according to a standard word rate. Therefore you should apply your standard hourly rate. One way to set an hourly rate if you haven't established one is to ascertain your normal translation output in words in one hour, times your word rate. If, for example, you can normally translate 350 words in an hour, and you charge 20 cents per word, your hourly rate might be 70 dollars. Your actual rate will of course vary, depending upon how quickly you translate and the relative value of currency in your country.
