Approximate price of translations
The price is calculated from two components: the length of the text and the pay rate (price = length × pay rate). The length of the text is expressed in “standard pages”, where 1 standard page (sp) = 1,800 characters incl. spaces*. The pay rate for 1 standard page is agreed on by the client and myself based on the difficulty and urgency of the translation.
Rate (price range): 390 to 650 CZK/sp
Approximate price of interpreting
The price for consecutive interpreting between English and Czech is calculated from three components: the number of hours, the pay rate, and the travel fee (price = [number of hours × pay rate] + travel fee). The pay rate for 1 hour of interpreting (regardless of the actual amount of interpreting done within that time) is agreed on by the client and myself based on the difficulty of the interpreting:
Interpreting pay rate: 790 to 1290 CZK/hour
(includes my full cooperation and consultation regarding communication, cultural expectations, problem solving, satisfactory results etc.)
Travel fee: 2×8 CZK/km (up to 15 km for free)
the distance is measured from the contact address (Sušilova Street, Holešov) using www.mapy.cz, the rate of 8 CZK/km is doubled to account for the journey there and back; the fee includes travelling expenses and time spent on the road**

* You can find out the character count of your document using a text editor (Word, OpenOffice), in general you can access it through the toolbar: Tools -> Word/Character Count. Divide the “character count including spaces” number by 1,800. This will give you the amount of standard pages your text contains. I round the length of the text to one decimal point, the overall length of the job must be at least 0.5 sp.
