I am about to receive a poem from someone who wishes me to translate it into English verse. He already has a rough English translation that he's not happy with - and it is not in verse, anyway, so I will need to start over. I'm just getting established, so my fee will be much lower than that of an experienced translator, but still, how much does one generally charge for verse translation / versifying?
I don't see how else you could quote for translating poetry. Apply your rate per hour or agree on a set fee.
Good luck, Evert
