Hello, everyone! I have a question about the rate for proofreading Japanese/English documents. As the rate for proofreading/editing the translated English document from Japanese source document, I get paid $0.015 per Japanese character in Japanese source document. Is this too low or the standard rate in the market now? I checked some translators' rates but most of them I found were the rate per word, so I was wondering if anyone can share some thoughts how much you are charging per Japanese character in source document. About a year ago when I had a contract with this company, I asked for more but they declined. I thought it might be time to ask for raise. I know that the rate depends on experience and other items, but I appreciate if you can share some ideas. Thank you very much for any help that you can offer ご意見、ご感想いただけると、とても嬉しく思います。どうかよろしくお願いいたします。
