      It's low for sure. My own base rate for private work (not through an
      agency) is 400 Kc per NS, which is almost 8 cents a word at today's
      rates (I think I calculated that correctly, and using 300 words per
      NS), and I'm sure others charge similarly.

      My agency work is done at much lower rate, around 280 Kc per NS.
