I want to work as a freelance for an agency in the Uk. I have to fill up a form in which they are asking me my rates and I am not sure about it. I translate from English and French to Spanish. Spanish to French. My native languages are Spanish and French.

Ask them Oct 19, 2012

Why not ask the agency what rates they expect to pay you? Otherwise you run the risk of underselling yourself, or asking so much that they never contact you.

One agency contacted me yesterday and I was about to take the job when I discovered they were only going to pay 4 cents (euro) per word, which is about 50% of my usual rate, so I politely declined.
