Freelance language professionals are in demand. Individual business people use different techniques to set their prices. Underlying any reasonable range of prices, however, is a threshold, the break-even point. Turning down an assignment may be necessary for several reasons, including unsuitability of the subject matter, the language, deadlines or conflicting prior commitments.
