Pricing

 

Rates can usually be set based on the source character count or target English word count (exceptions include source file formats that prohibit accurate character counts). I also have hourly rates for special services such as editing, consulting, on-site work and survey translations. The rate must be agreed upon before the start of any project. Rates are usually set in USD; if you prefer to use another currency, the conversion rate must be agreed upon by both parties in advance.

 

Please note that rates are subject to change based on the details of the specific project. A sample of my average rates are listed below, but please contact me and I'll be happy to give you an exact quote. I accept payments via check, money order, wire transfer or Paypal.
