I was wondering what percentage of one's normal per word rate you should charge for literary translations, assigned via a literary translation agency. I know usually people charge less to translate novels because it is so sought after, but I would really like a more precise idea of how much I should charge, per word, to translate a long novel, through an agency. The combination is Italian>English.
