Today, I have just found Google Gloabal Market Finder at http://translate.google.com/globalmarketfinder/index.html.
You just need to select your location and language, enter keywords and click 'Find opportunity', you can see the suggested bid by Google.
It seems my bid is very lower than the suggested bid in my language pair from English to Chinese.
How about you? Could you please share it?

Is this for Google Ads? Jan 16, 2011

I don't understand what this is for.
Is it for Google Ads? Is it really reporting price/word for a translation? I can't see any reference to this.

I just have found it at haphazard.

Price per keyword in Google AdWords Jan 16, 2011

This page is not about translation prices but rather for estimating how much money you will have to spend for a certain keyword in a certain country when promoting your buisness via Google AdWords.

Maybe this information already solves your question...

It shows demand Jan 16, 2011

The price shown is the price to bid for keywords on Google Ads. The price has nothing to do with translation rate. What the tool does show, however, is demand. It doesn't show supply, but it does show where there is potentially a lot of demand for your services.

E.g. my main language is Afrikaans, so I did a search for "afrikaans translation" and "afrikaans translator", and found that the biggest demand is in South Africa (obviously), the United States, the UK, Germany (surprised), France (surprised) and Australia. Oh, and India (probably all those Indian agencies searching for Afrikaans translators). I also discovered that the demand in the UK is a bit higher than in the United States (which is news to me).
