Dear colleagues,



Could someone of you advise on how much to charge for entering terms/building a glossary?



It seems that my client is not keen on paying hourly rates for this sort of job. So, I would be interested to know what rate should I offer as a percentage from my translation per-word rate

For example, if you charge 10c/word for translation, then how much would you charge per term entered?



TIA,

Dmitri

Creating a TB Apr 15, 2003

Hi,



A rate per hour is hardly accepted, as for some highly technical fields even a translation \"expert\" has to invest quite a time in searching.



I am asked to create TBs before the project starts and I charge for each \"entry\" my rate per line.



This way of charging \"covers\" in average my time investment...



Giuliana



P.S. These TBs are then checked an approved by internal specialists (no translators, mostly engineers, who adapt entries to their \"internal\" terminology). They are a \"separate\" job and do not constitute an \"excuse\" for a discount on my rate for translating the files they are taken from.

I\'d say, charge your client your regular per-word rate. Charging per line is another option.
