In case you weren’t clear what Italian translators are up against, here’s a publicity flyer recently distributed at a public event in Rome:
To save you figuring out the completely fanciful unit of measurement that this person has invented, 24 lines at Courier 14 comes to about 190 words, so the per-word rate here is €0.015/$0.020/£0.013. But wait: there’s a 16% discount for quantity!
How about if we all write to firstname.lastname@example.org (you can write in franc, ing, or ital, one imagines) just to touch bases and remind him/her that some people are trying to earn a living here? When you write, be sure to mention the word “crumiro.”
