I work in Northern California. Occasionally I get Mandarin voiceover and voice direction work, mostly for industrial videos.



If I charge X dollars per hour for deposition interpretation, how much should I charge for voiceover and for voice direction?



Right now, I charge 1.0X and 0.7X for voiceover and voice direction, respectively. I am thinking of raising the rates to 1.5X and 1.2X.



Any ideas?

"Raising the rates to 1.5X and 1.2X."------ 很合理,因为这类活儿比口译要麻烦多了。
