I'm asking on the off-chance.... does anyone have a useful formula for converting line rates to word rates?
I have just completed a job for a client with whom I normally apply a rate per line of 55 keystrokes, counted using Count'It (we both use the same application). However the job comprised a PowerPoint file and a Word file with approx 20% text boxes and was completed in Tag Editor. I pretty much have the option of charging my usual line rate - if I can work out how to count the lines in the files - or convert to the equivalent word rate. I should stress that this is one of my favourite clients and the question is not one of pricing per se, merely a mathematical conversion! Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!
