Hi,
I just found a great job posting, offering 40 USD / source word, and, yes, on this site!

Take this as a positive example of agencies offering the right rate for quality work

Here is the offer:
"Languages: English to German
Language variant: Swiss

Job description:
I have a letter (in Word) and PowerPoint Presentation which contain both business/financial and specific medical terminology for translation into Swiss German. The qualified candidadtes must have extensive experience in both business/financial and medical fields and be proficient users of Trados.

Volume and pricing:
1300 words
at 40.000 USD per word [ TOTAL: 52000.00 USD ] "

Have a great day!

Anne-Marie

When we all apply, I wonder what the corrected rate will turn out to be:

4$; 0.4$; 0.04$

Hands up all those who reckon it'll be the last one!

0.04$ per source word for Swiss German; business/financial AND medical specialisations; good Trados expertise - sounds about normal to me

Sheila, don't be so negative; a new era is coming up!

The common efforts of all colleagues are showing the first results; and the first positive signs are coming from our former colony... hhm!
Together we can

Cheers,

Anne-Marie

PS - Somehow however I didn't feel like applying... My Swiss German is lagging behind...
