What is a fair rate to charge for translations from English to Portuguese and vice versa when you're a beginner and uses Microsoft Word/Excel as platforms?

| What about comparing your earnings with a local teacher? || Mar 20, 2012 |
How much you can charge depends on many factors: your language pair, your skill, your field of expertise, etc. Last but not least, your geographical location plays an important role as well.
I find it interesting to compare the income of a translator with a local teacher. A highly successful translator can make as much as a local professor at the university, a mediocre one should make at least as much as a local primary school teacher.
So as a starter just do the math, how much you have to charge to be as well off as a primary school teacher?
