Hello everyone,

I`ve been asked to review the final text of a translation from spanish to portuguese and it`s the first time that it occurs so I have no idea of what kind of fee I`m supposed to apply to this work;per word?page? And how much?
Thank you in advance for your help.

This type of job should always be quoted for on the basis of time taken. The quantity is not the determining factor; quality is. One page full of errors will take as long as three well written pages with virtually nothing to comment on.

I agree with Sheila. I usually turn on my timer and begin the work. If you've spent less than a hour, put in invoice your hourly rate or your minimum fee.

Totally with Sheila here. Mar 9, 2015

I was once asked to translate 119 words and was returned a 48 page document to revise the words I had translated. I WILL do a revision of the paragraph in which my TR was implemented into, but this just did not seem correct (to put it mildly).

Do go by a fair hourly rate. That will allow you to spot the bottom feeders at an early stage!

Best of luck,
Nicole.
