Getting your prices right
Take a practical look at translation pricing. Make sure you charge fair prices that will allow you to achieve a sustainable income. Get new perspective on your working practices and how they affect your earnings. Take some time to think about your approach to pricing jobs. Ensure you are quoting competitively, while making certain that you will be able to afford to keep freelancing in the long-term.
This webinar opens by discussing industry pricing and looking at why freelancers sometimes end up under-pricing or accepting prices that are too low. We will look at how freelancers can establish their hourly rate, before moving on to focus on how profitable your own translation practices are.
Attendees will be encouraged to question how they approach pricing and discover methods to learn more about their own translation and working practices, with a view to being more profitable. We will see how this information can be applied to quoting for jobs, to enable you to ensure you get a fair price. The session closes with a summary of pointers to bear in mind when pricing translation jobs.
