Not exactly sure where I came across this pricing menu by a translation service provider in Malaysia – Lexup – so apologies if I am not giving you the credit you deserve because this really grabbed my attention.
A translation service focussed on the legal profession that not only charges by the minute (let alone 6 minute units), but whose rates vary depending on how urgent your need is.
Alternatively, if you’re not happy with the hourly billing model, then let’s go old school (Charles Dickens era) and pay by the word. Again though, the quicker you want your work back, the more it will cost you!
Peak-load pricing. I have no idea why law firms have not adopted this years ago!
As usual comments are my own – but I’m sure there is someone out there who can tell me the optimum price to time!
