Free rate calculator for translators #xl8  

There are rate calculators for generic freelance jobs all over the internet, but none that take into account the kind of factors that determine our productivity and growth potential. This rate calculator has been made specifically for translators and it also fits in neatly with the theme of the Translation sales handbook that it was originally distributed with.
