I often look at members\' profiles, in particular those who answer or ask KudoZ questions, and I wonder... Many have very low rates per word but high rates per hour. Does that mean they translate very fast?

My rates per hour are set for proof-reading

but charging for an easy translation either by word or by hour I would have approximately the same result. So, for example, if someone charges €0.03 per word and €30.00 per hour does that mean that person translates 1,000 words per hour?

Is that possible with the help of CAT-tools?
