Rates can sometimes be a contentious topic for translators, but on TM-Town we make it simple for you. Starting today, if you so choose, you can set a public rate range on your TM-Town profile. This helps to give clients browsing your profile a better feel for whether you are the best translator for their job.
We at TM-Town know that your rates will vary. Many factors can influence the rate you decide to charge for a job including the language pair, the difficulty of the source text, file format, deadline and more. By allowing you to set a range on your profile (both a per word and hourly range) you can communicate to potential clients the typical rates you charge while still maintaining the flexibility to negotiate with the client after you learn the specific details of the job.
You can set your rate ranges from your Account Settings page. To keep things simple and consistent for clients browsing the site, we ask you to specify your rate range in USD (U.S. dollars) even if you have a different preferred currency.
If the client's budget is below your Don't Bother Me Rate it's simple - you won't be bothered.
