Hi andrea! 

I'm a Spanish Translator as well, and I charge between $6-12/h (I aim to $10/h). Always it depends on the client and the task.
At first, you won't get jobs easily, so be prepared to be flexible. I recommend you to write specific proposals, and avoid copying and pasting the same proposal.. 

Learn from your mistakes, and from other's mistakes (Reading the forum is a great idea. You can see how other people face situations you might have in the future) . That's my main advice to you.
