Rates for Translation

My rate for commercial translation varies; generally it ranges between 4 and 12 cents per word, depending on difficulty, needed turnaround time and size of the job.

My rate for literary translation varies, depending on the individual job, but would be based on a rate of $30.00-$50.00 an hour, depending on the difficulty of the piece.

Rates for Editing and Proofreading

My rate for straightforward editing and proofreading is $40.00 an hour.

My rate for more complex editing jobs (i.e. those that involve substantial correction/revision) is $50.00-$60.00 an hour, depending on the difficulty of the piece.

There is a minimum charge of $40.00 for all jobs.


I will be happy to provide an estimate based on sample pages for all jobs. I will provide discounts on larger jobs.
