Prices

(Note: Prices may be subject to change based on text complexity and time required for the job)

My freelance fee for translation or revision is based on the amount of work the translation or the editing/proofreading of your text demands. While I prefer to quote according to the number of symbols per standard line, I have included examples of both this rate and my rate per word below. I do not calculate my rates per page as a page can vary a great deal in the number of symbols or words it contains. I can also provide you with an hourly rate if it makes my pricing more transparent for you.

Translation rates

For translation, I charge €1.05 for a standard line of 55 symbols (with spaces), or €.15 per word.

Ex.

If a manuscript contains 20,000 symbols, then the price calculation per symbol would be as follows: (20,000/55) x 1.05 = €381.50

OR

If a manuscript contains 1000 words, then the price calculation per word would be as follows: 1000 x .15 = €150

Copy editing rates

For copy editing, I charge €0.45 for a standard line 55 symbols (including spaces), or €.055 per word.

Ex.

If a manuscript contains 20,000 symbols, then the price calculation per symbol would be as follows: (20,000/55) x 0.45 = €163.50

OR

If a manuscript contains 1000 words, then the price calculation per word would be as follows: 1000 x .055 = €55

Proofreading rates

For proofreading, I charge €0.35 for a standard line of 55 symbols (including spaces), or €.043 per word.

Ex.

If a manuscript contains 20,000 symbols, then the price calculation per symbol would be as follows: (20,000/55) x 0.35 = €127

OR

If a manuscript contains 1000 words, then the price calculation per word would be as follows: 1000 x .043 = €43

Minimum price

The minimum price for an order is €30. This is due to the time I need to communicate with you and to clear up possible questions, which tends to be disproportionate for small orders. However, if you have more than one text that needs editing or translating, then I’ll be glad to wait until the series of jobs is completed before sending you my invoice; in this case, the price for the individual assignment may be less than €30.
