Current Project

Pricing Practices Adopted by Freelance Service Providers

In the context of mv diploma thesis in business management at FernUniversität in Hagen, I will focus on pricing practices. Pricing is crucial for the viability of a firm. At the same time, it is the only element of the marketing mix which generates revenues. The inherent characteristics of services result in a number of peculiarities for pricing. These issues have been well researched.

Translators and interpreters largely provide their services as freelancers. This in turn will have an impact on their pricing practices. While freelancers have recently attracted research interest, this research has rarely regarded them as a distinct group of businesses. This project aims to remedy this:With a focus on pricing, this paper analyses management practices of free-lance interpreters and translators.

Here, you will receive regular updates on the progress of this project. You will also be able to access the survey at the heart of this project once it is available. Once analysed, the results of the survey will be published on this website.
