ancora un post sulle tariffe:-)
Il mio dubbio è che vivo in Svizzera, dove il costo della vita è piuttosto alto e le tariffe di conseguenza. Per ora lavoro con agenzie, e con quelle italiane ovviamente non riesco a spuntare lo stesso prezzo. Ora, il mio dubbio è come comportarmi in caso di contatto da parte di un cliente finale fuori Svizzera.

Ho letto in un forum che la tariffa dipende dal paese di residenza del cliente.


Me lo confermate? In questo caso come fare, chiedere al cliente dove risiede prima di fargli un preventivo?

Address Jan 30, 2017

Shouldn't you always find out a prospective client's full address before sending them a quote? If only to be sure it's not a scammer? People without an address are more than suspicious.

Edit: Personally, I don't have different prices for clients in different countries, because I have to buy my food where I live and not where the client lives, but I don't have a strong opinion on this. Probably a question of supply and demand - if you can get enough high-paying jobs, you might not be inclined to accept lower-paying ones, whatever the reason for the rates.

Your choice, but... Jan 30, 2017

In my opinion, you have to set rates based on your expectations and needs. If you want to consider other aspects, I believe it would make more sense to take into account the target language (i.e. the target audience/market), rather than where the client is based... In other words, if an Indian or Chinese agency asks you to translate EN>IT (it or ch), should you be charging an "Eastern rate", even if those agencies are probably just outsourcing work from a Western end-client and the translation is going to be used on Western markets? That would just mean playing into their hands (for no good reason)...
