The definitive service for helping customers find and employ local skilled translators, interpreters, and tutors 


How Much Can I Earn?
It is entirely up to you how much you charge for your services. However, linguists are usually well paid and customers can expect to pay the going rate for competent linguists. A very rough guide for linguist rates is:
UK £20-70 per hour for interpreters
UK £40-100 per 1000 words translation
UK £10-20 per hour for tuition.
US $ 30-100 per hour for interpreters
US $ 70-250 per 1000 words translation
US $ 15-50 per hour for tuition.

The price you can charge depends on a variety of factors including your location and your experience. If you have expertise in a particular field such as e.g. legal or technical then customers can expect to pay extra for this too

Please note that the higher you appear in the search results screens the better your job prospects. So if you do not have a lot of experience, or you have not joined the Featured Linguist's section, then the best way for you to appear high in the rankings is to have a lower price than your competitors. If you do this you will appear high in the searches ordered by price.
