sounds a lot!

translators here will charge about 40 odd Euros - but you have to bear in mind that they might only get a few jobs a week. For a written translation you usually pay per page - anything from about 15 to 40 euros. But again, it's not constant work.

I used to have private spanish lessons with two friends - we paid 30 euros for 1.5 hours between us - and that's the most expensive one I've come across. Yet again though, not constant work.

I teach english, maths, basic spanish & general help with homework to english kids who are in spanish schools. I charge 10 euros an hour - that's pretty much the going rate.

I could never live on what I make though. As a family we could just about eat on it - but not live on it - and of course in the holidays most of them drop out.

My wife has been doing private English classes for a while now. She started off "black" - ie, teaching in people´s homes and not declaring to the authorities. For that she charged 10 - 12 euros per hour.

But then she got herself registered and went official. Now she teaches to small groups in local businesses for which she charges 35€ - 40€ per hour depending on the size of the group. There is plenty of work and it is regular from September to June with a gap in summer. Easily enough to live off.

So there are a few well paid jobs out there.
