From my experience doing translations in Spain, I can tell you that work would generally not be billed by the hour but by the number of words in the original text. Some translations may be charged as a flat fee, especially shorter items such as letters. The only time I was paid by the hour was when I was working in-house for several days with a team of engineers, who although they didn't speak English, were able to explain in Spanish, the meaning of various technical terms.
