Hi,
A client has asked to read through their translation of a technical handwritten document and help them decipher words they had problems with.
This could be quite time consuming and was wondering how I should charge for such a job?
Thanks
J

Depending on the length of the document, you should also have a minimum charge. You will have to read through the entire handwritten document before attempting to decipher any handwritten text. If they want you to check the translation, charge for that as well – also on an hourly basis.
