    Default "price per new word"

    "price per new word"
    It seems a price system used in the translation industry.
    Could anybody tell me what exactly it is like please?

    A thousand-word text might have three hundred different words in it, so they would charge for three hundred words not a thousand- you don't pay for repeated words.
