Thank you @Dmitry
I definitely need this.
I have had several offers from some well-known clients/agencies with whom I have never worked before (I am still figuring out how they got my contact: LinkedIn? other clients?). In such offers for long-term collaboration, they often ask my CV, rates, and availability. Each time I send the required info, I never hear from them again.
Could it be the rate? I have been wondering if asking $10 cents per source word is too much or too less. My present clients pay between 6 to 9 cents.
