Hi,
A client of mine usually only asks for written translation. Soon, I'll get another project where not only will I have to translate the text, but also record it.
How much should I charge for the recording? I still have not received it yet, but he told me it's only a few lines to read (I'll see for sure when I get it and I'll be the judge).
Has anyone had such a situation before.

Hourly rate Feb 15, 2007

Hi Nina,

I would charge an hourly rate and include travel time and expenses if applicable.
I say an hourly rate because even if the text is short, these things can take longer than expected - it's amazing how simple words can suddenly become tongue twisters when you press a record button.

I don't know why my client asked this.
