Welcome, Littleme Jun 29, 2015

I'm afraid I for one am a little at a loss here.

"How much is 20 cents a word?" Is that USD cents, EUR cents or other cents?

Of course, 20 cents per word times 700 words is going to come out at 140 big ones, be they dollars, euros or other currency.

But is that really the question you're asking?


That's what I was asking Jun 29, 2015

Oui Cheri, that's what I meant. I only wanted to make sure. Merci!

Well, next time you might want "to make sure" using one of this

What currency? Jun 29, 2015

If you are being offered 20 cents a word in Euros, then it won't be 140 dollars, it will be something else, depending on the exchange rate and costs of conversion. Is that what you mean?
