Setting and Raising Your Rates as a Freelancer

December 15, 2022

How do you set or raise rates for your translation and interpreting services? Hint: It’s not about what someone else charges!

Knowing how much you need to earn in order to reach your financial goals is a key part of being a freelancer, but many translators and interpreters are not “numbers people” and struggle to set their rates and reach their desired income. In this Back to Business Basics webinar, you’ll learn strategies for calculating your target rate and what to do when you want to earn more money.

You will learn how to:

  1. Determine what you need or want to earn as a freelancer
  2. Turn your goal income into an hourly or per-word rate
  3. Establish green, yellow, and red zone rates
  4. Give yourself a raise
