No Jul 3, 2009

But I would only when pay is reasonable and project interesting.

However, I've never come across such opportunity.

Another No here Jul 3, 2009

I keep glossaries and the like for each client, but they are just for me to guarantee consistency in the translations. Luckily so far clients have not asked whether I do or if I would share them.

Just like humbird wrote already:
If a client would ask me to create a glossary and deliver it with the translation we would ahve to agree on a price for the extra time I spend on creating the files and for the expertise they contain.

It simply happens as part of large projects... Jul 3, 2009

...Often on clients' initiative.

Yes and no Jul 3, 2009

I do offer it, and I have on many occasions been paid to compile, translate and sometimes "clean" glossaries, do terminology research and the like, it is a service I charge for, just like any other.

I always keep project glossaries and update them as I continue to work on assignments, but I do not give them to the client unless they agree to pay for them.

With some exceptions, I always compile a glossary for every project/client, but like David I do not give them away for free because it is an additional service. Besides, the glossaries that I deliver are not the same as the glossaries I use for the project.
