I usually charge on a per word basis (language source), with prices starting from 0.08 € for translation in my linguistic combinations. My rates can vary depending on certain factors, such as urgency, complexity or level of technicality of the project.
I always use the Trados functions, “Analyze Files Report”, and “Pre-Translate Files”, in order to provide my clients with a precise word count and detailed budget.
Invoices are sent at the end of each month for all jobs completed within that month.
I can accept payments by wire transfer and/ or Moneybookers.
