I have passed the DipTrans exam this year and am currently looking for translating jobs.
Could anyone please help me with rates - I have no clue what standard rates are.
I have an application form to fill in and have been asked questions referring to:
- pricing per 1000 words / per line - translating
- pricing per 1000 words / per line / per hour - proofreading
- hourly rate
- minimum charge.
I'd be very grateful for any help on these!!!
Thank you!

Have a look at the rate calculator Jun 2, 2010

You will find it under the Tools menu.

The best idea would be to play around with it a bit, and try out different figures, until you begin to get the picture.

My Rates Jun 3, 2010

Hi Moodget,
My language pair is English to Indonesian, and my translation rates are US$0.12 per source word and US$40 per hour.

All the best

From my experience ES>EN>ES Jun 3, 2010

I, sometimes, outsource work mainly in the combination ES>EN and EN>ES. The translators' average rates vary from 0.08 EUR/word to 0.14 EUR/word. Their proofreading rates vary from 0.04 EUR/word to 0.06 EUR/word.

I do not know if this can be of any help to you.
