Client ask me to create DejaVuX terminology database from the project I translate now.
This would be paid in addition.
But I don't have idea how much to charge for this job.
Please, share your experience about the rates for database entries (saying, compared to the rate per source word).

Thank youicon_smile.gif

It very much depends on the kind of terminology May 30, 2006

Case A) Demanding terminology needing considerable research:

I would estimate 8 times the word rate, no matter in which format the list should be delivered

Case B) Simple terminology which is only needed to insure consistency:

2 times the word rate, since it involves selecting source and target terms with the mouse and then hitting F10 to enter it into the Lexicon or F11+Enter to enter it into the Terminology Database. This takes roughly as much time as translating and writing the term 2 times.

In practice, both cases may occur within one project, in which case you could interpolate according to the proportions.
