 Translation - item lists, glossaries, etc.
For translation of certain kinds of "non-regular" text, I charge per hour instead of per word. This applies for instance to lists of items (e.g. short product descriptions or product names), glossaries, etc. This sort of material takes much longer time to process than regular text.
 Rate: 35 euro/hour

 I usually charge for translation tests as per my regular rate. 
  Rate: 35 euro/hour
