I negiotiated and got a much better offer: roughly 1/3 more than originally offered. Needless to say that I accepted - even gladly so. Thank you all very much for your inputs!
I have been offered a freelance position as a med-tech translator for a major US pharmaceutical company. They had asked me for my prices (as I worked as a freelance translator before) which I told them. They now sent me an e-mail with an offer I'm not quite happy with as the numbers are much lower.
Should I still try to negotiate or directly dismiss the offer? Are such offers seen as final in the US or is there still a way to talk about it?
Update Thanks for all your answer! I will send an e-mail and tell them that this amount is below my expectations and ask if there's any chance we can negotiate. I was mostly wondering if in US business culture I'm crossing any lines by doing so.
