I know somebody for which I may proceed some translations between german and chineese as from the beginning of next year.
The point is if I get the text in german, I can count the words or the lines to make the price to the client. But what if the client turns someday with a text in Chineese to translate into German, do you know if I would be even be able to count the words in words or trados to unable me to make the offer before I can translate it to the translator? I think thant to proz it won't be difficult to find a translator, but I need first to calculate the price for the end client first.
Any help will be appreciated.
