Forum for Translators: Translation rate
I am new, and I am looking for some help.
I am applying for translation/revision/proofreading projects for a translation agency, but I don't know how much should I charge per word, since I am quite new to this kind of job.
I can't find average rates to have an idea, and I would charge a fair rate.
Could someone help me?
I'm hoping that some of you may be able to help.
I've been working as a part-time qualified translator (mainly construction contracts) for 1 year.
I work regularly with around several agencies and my rates from one to the next can vary pretty significantly.
This year I'm hoping to standardise my rates. So...what I'm hoping for is some suggestions of a fair translation rate per 1,000 words and proofreading rate per hour for me to charge (bearing in mind these are agencies and not direct clients I'm billing).
If I'm honest, my rate with my most regular provider is embarrassingly low (I'd rather not specify!), and I'd like to propose a rise to them, but don't want to price myself too high. This is why I'd really appreciate any feedback from you good translators out there.
Thank you for taking the time to read
