can someone of you tell me how much you take for "post editing". I have never done this before. I think it's more or less after a machine translation, that you try to rearrange the text. How far is it from proofreading, also the rate. You charge it like proofreading or more like a translation or by the hour? How many words can be done a day by post editing?
thank you for your help in this matter

* 6000 words postedited (English to French) in 6 hours (at average of 1000 words per hour on constant basis). Document is the following article. After completion of initial postedited document, an additional 8-11% of changes were made (depending if measured by words or by characters) by a native French-speaking reviewer for the published French version. No dictionary building was conducted.
