I have been asked to edit a doctoral thesis (anthropology).


How do you people usually charge... per hour/page/word?


I would prefer to charge either per word or per page. And I was thinking maybe AUD 0.02 per word.


what do you reckon?


thanks-

I think editing should always be hourly. Unless you are absolutely sure the quality is not abysmal, it\'s a major risk otherwise.

0.08 euro




Do you actually have clients that pay 0.08 euros per word for revising texts? or did you misunderstand, thinking that alejandra was being asked to translate?


If you do get paid 0.08 euros per word (revision), I think we\'d all be happy to hear the secret to your success! icon_smile.gif
