hello,
i'm currently translating a web-site from english to hebrew for a british salesman. work also includes translation of a small commercial leaflat. translation is marketing oriented. the web-site is mostly flash with many informative bullets. approximately 11 web-pages with repetetive texts. 2 word-pages for the leaflet.
i've been asked to present a translation fee as bulk. how much do you think i should ask for, in british pounds?
any answer would be greatly appreciated.
Thnx, adar

Dear Adar:

Estimate how much time it would take to do. Estimate how much other translation you could do if you didn't take the job in that time. Then, make it "sheve" for you to translate that site.

It's all about opportunity cost.

hi rifkind,
thanks for your reply.
i'm basically doing this translation job as a favor to an intermidiary. i'm doing this in my spare time. basically, i'd just like to know how much people usually charge for a marketing oriented translation of a commercial web-site and promotional material.
thanks again, adar

How long is a piece of string? May 24, 2007

Hi Adar,
Sorry, no easy answers here.

i'm basically doing this translation job as a favor to an intermidiary.

If you're doing it as a favour, do it for free.
If you don't want to do it for free (which I would entirely understand), you need to come up with a price, based on the estimated amount of time it will take you to get the job done.

i'm doing this in my spare time.

In whatever time - it's your time.

basically, i'd just like to know how much people usually charge for a marketing oriented translation of a commercial web-site and promotional material.

How much is a BMW? Can't tell? Exactly.
It's impossible to give you even a rough estimate without having analysed the texts.

You may want to try the ProZ.com rate calculator - admittedly, it's simplistic, but could well be useful to get a preliminary idea.

Best regards,
Ralf
