Other - I guess Dec 7, 2009

As I have a minimum fee and sometimes have gotten small projects it could be correct to answer more than >0.16 €, but it feels wrong as I would otherwise say 0.12-0.16 €/source word.

It will be very interesting to see what you - my collegues - will reply to this one!

>0.16 Dec 7, 2009

I met the client through Proz and for some jobs, deadline ASAP, I got more than that.
normal rate was lower anyway.

0.20 €/word Dec 7, 2009

0.20 €/word for a 6 month project translating about 300 words per day (very easy-general text) with a 24 hour deadline... not bad

I also have a minimum fee, and it would be technically correct to say that my answer is more than 0.16 Euros, and since the poll didn't mention anything about minimum fees, I voted for >0.16.

Price brackets not very clever Dec 8, 2009

0.08-0.12 and then 0.12-0.16 €. So if it's 0.12 € what bracket am I in? That was a bit daft. Otherwise a good poll. Thanks!

0.08, from Latvian to Hungarian, for my greatest sorrow
But I met a great translator colleagues here, therefore I am not so-o-o-o sad.
