My rates are reasonable:

To these basic rates a surcharge should be added for any of the following considerations:
1. Scientific, scholarly, technical or other professional texts requiring time for research and /or verification.
2. Texts in a new area requiring the coinage of new terminology
3. A literary text, a text with a unique style, or poetry.
4. An unclear source text (unedited, handwritten, or with numerous corrections).
5. A rush job.
6. Translation of films involving viewing and /or with technical limitations on subtitles.
7. Additional DTP 5desktop publishing) or layout requirements.
Please note that the 250-word rate is minimal and applies to texts shorter than one page.
