Hours of Operations: I work full time as a freelancer. I am located in GMT+5:30 time zone and I never work nights.
Payment Terms: My best rate per word for translation is USD 0.03/ source word and yes it is negotiable in case of long-term or bulk projects.
Preferred Mode of Communication: I prefer mail and skype. I prefer to maintain clear communication throughout the project because that way my client knows exactly what to expect and I feel relaxed because of the transparency.
