$5 / word Jun 24, 2014

Depends on the language!

For EN, a typical characters/ word ratio is 6.5 ch/wd, meaning your text would be around 20 words long, and hence come out at a whopping $5 / word.

Whether or not spaces are included in the character count will clearly make a difference too!

Unless of course I can get it in advance and irrevocably. Somehow I don't see this one going anywhere but, hey, it's a slow afternoon working with Tcl.

Just received a mail via ProZ. I'm posting in the Scams Forum for the hundreds of other presumed recipients.
