Your usual hourly rate Nov 24, 2006

Hi Silvia,

Just charge your usual amount for the time it takes. Your hourly rate represents what your time is worth, and you should charge the same per hour for everything you do.

I usually charge from 4.5 € up to 6€ per minute of audio file depending on the quality of the tape. It is very likely that it will take you around 2-3 hours to transcribe the 15 minutes.

Good luck!
