You're welcome. It's really hard to know what to do sometimes because you don't want to lose your client, but you don't want to be underpaid.

I worked for a gal last year from Louisiana. She would send me 100 pages for scoping, and by the time I was done, it was 130-140 pages. If the material is hard, that's one thing. If it's not, that's something else. I was spending more time transcribing than I was actually scoping.

I told her that okay, You send me 100 pages, your rate will be the same up to 110 pages. Once you get past ten pages added, every page AFTER that 110 pages will be $2.00/page, something like that. That way, you're not getting slammed with this astronomical scoping rate, and I'm actually making some money and not wasting my time.

Hi, Andrea,

If your regular proofing rate is, say, .35/page and somebody wants you to proof against the tape, raise your rate to, say, .50/page, and it goes up from there, depending on how quickly they want it.

This is what I do and I find that that's fair. I've never had any complaints, and I always tell people up front as an option, something like,

Proofing = .35/page, .50/page, .75/page
Proofing against the audio = .50, .75, $1.00 something like that.

Hope it helps.
