Rate Count for Accounting Total of Paid Words

I don’t need your mailing with Karel and I applied the common rate just to simplify counting of hours this time. The point is we’ve got the amount you are supposed to be paid. Hope, you don’t mind.

Hi

just letting you know that I checked the finalized BOI file uploaded by Karel, and everything’s fine!

———————-

Karel contacted me… because of payments.

Should I check accounting here?

Paid so far: 603.72

Is the above numbers correct?

nice to here from you again.

word count seems ok, as far as I can tell from here.

Hoping for future projects soon.

Hi, !

Please, refer to Google sheet if the words count in accounting file differs from the one you were given when the file was assigned. There were 2179 Chinese words counted in the original words count, which were substracted then for the final accounting of the file you mentioned(01_part_059). All changes of words count are reflected in a pop-up comment in the Final word count column on GS.

Please, tell me if there is anything else you want to clarify.

———————-

Thank you for confirmation.
Enjoy vacation!

Very nice. Thank you for confirmation.
Have a nice weekend 🙂

Hi, Sebastian!

Karel says that your rate for different files on BOI varies from 0,04 to 0,06 USD/word. Specify, please, what rate for what files should be applied.

Please, submit a new ticket in Reports and Accounting category for further communication.

———————-

Ok, added.

Please, let me also know your rate/hour for spellchecking.

———————-

to your information, Fabian has provided the details for payments, and his work on JD will be paid directly to him. So I substract 1716 words translated by Fabian from your words count and add him separately.

Have a nice weekend!

———————-

My rate: $15 per hour.
Annette” Thanks. Corrected.

“Hi

my rate for all BOI files is 0,06 USD/word.

(I had different rates for some files on the previous game, Jade Dynasty.)

Cheers
Jan

———————-

Hi, Jan!

Ok, I guess I misunderstood Karel. Then let me know the same information but for JD then.

———————-

You can find my personal Jade Dynasty accounting file here:

http://www.torpedosound.com/clients/index.php

your password: JD

The file contains a tab for each rate.

Cheers
Jan

———————-

Thank you Jan, I corrected the accounting file.
I substraceted an apropriate amounts of words from files which should be counted with lower rate and applied 0,06 for all files. For example:
JD_100201_Localize_15m
Original words count:2399
Rate for this file: 0,05

2399*0,05=119,95
I substract 399 words, and apply 0,06 rate for 2000 words remained:

2000*0,06=120

All other files are counted the same way.
If you want to check it, the updated accounting file is attached.

———————-

I did not receive a accounting file.
Could you please send me this file?

Thank you very much!

Sophie

Sophie!

Here you go. Both BOI and JD.

All

———————-

thank you for informing me. I hope you had a chance to notice what I said about Fabian’s work on JD: I have already paid him out of my own pocket. So I don’t know about the word count, which may be an internal issue for your accounting, but regarding actual payment, this would have to go to me. I don’t have it on top of my mind how much it is that Kenaxxx still owes me right now, so it would be nice to have an estimate.
Thank you very much

———————-

the point is that I was going to make payment directly to Fabian only for JD, but Karel had paid Fabian for JD too (102,96) USD. I could claim this payment to BOI, but he made less on BOI, so it would be confusing…to make a long story short, could you take this money from Fabian?
According to my files Kenax owes you:
JD:772,51 (total earned:8157,6, paid so far: 7385,09)
BOI: 1568,92 (earned:4021,92, paid:2453,00)

Latest files are attached.

———————-

thank you for the files!
For the project BOI the figures are correct. For JD there is
a mistake: Karel has already paid a total of 1080 US$, so the outstanding amount is 118,40 US$.

Here are my totals for 1rst part of work:
Total earnings for translation: $2,785 (I am attaching file with complete word count in blue)
Total earning for proofreading and other hourly work: $180
Subtotal: $2,965
I am also owed for 2nd part of work (JD REPAIR):Proofreading of final files: $525
Total combined: $3490

What I have been paid so far: 1,583 (639.95 +543 +400) + 947 + 300 + 115.19 = $2,945

Total owed remaining: $544.86

NOT INCLUDED IN YOUR CALCULATIONS – will be later?
3rd part of work for BOI: BOI translation 268 USD

In Karel’s email, it says I have been paid $3,330.01, which doesn’t correspond with my payments, please doublecheck payments, thanks.

I hope this helps
