Hi everybody!
It's been a long time since I last wrote on a Proz.com's forum!
I have been asked to translate a 4000 word document from Italian into English due on Sunday 13 May.
Considering the fact that I've been "far" from translation for some time, which rate would you suggest?!

I know there are hundreds of topics like this, but please would you help me?

Thanks.

Lucia

my rates May 10, 2007

Hi, all i can tell you to help you is that in this language combination the rates are between 0.040-0.080 EUR per word. I would ask them 0.060 for this job. Good luck!

Many factors concur May 10, 2007

Hello Lucia,

many factors concur to the process of price forming, so this is question that cannot be answered generally. Just to mention some: your qualifications, your expertise, the specific field of the text you are asked to translate, the file format, any specific instructions, years of experience, not to mention the fact that any rate should cover your costs (for running a business).

If it is true that each market (Country and field) may have its rates, it is also a fact that the very same market is multifacetted, i.e. a pretty wide range of rates are offered and accepted.

Good luck,

Giuliana

With rates such as these, good luck is what you will need.

May I suggest to play around with the ProZ.com rate calculator, and to include business-related costs, as well as health cover and retirement provisions?

Best regards,
Ralf
