Translator Pricing Question

I have a student who’d like to get into translating; I’m willing to pay her to try doing it with one of my stories. She has no actual experience yet. What would a fair rate be for beginner translators? (Also, if you can recommend resources for her to look at, I’m happy to pass those along.)

  1. My MIL was a freelance translator. The ATA is a helpful resource.

    One question to answer is how she would be charging – by the word? Page? Hour? Job? My MIL typically bid by the job and always complained that her rates ended up not being high enough because she always underestimated the hours per job (more of a “her” problem…).
