You are the professional, and it’s up to you to make sure that you give your clients their money’s worth without selling yourself short. Many clients want to haggle, complain, and bargain for a lower price. They may threaten to take their business elsewhere. Many translators and LSPs have a tendency to cave in—and larger clients know this and will take advantage of it. Don’t let this be you! Compromising your fees just because someone doesn’t want to pay full price should never be a consideration. You need to know how to stand strong and hold the line with your prices so that your clients don’t end up getting something for nothing. Think about big-name businesses out there. They don’t let clients dictate their prices. So you shouldn’t either.
