Hello, I was looking for a similar threat but couldn’t find one.
I know that there are several kinds of medical forms and some could be short or lengthy, so I was wondering what are the going rates for Eng-Spa translations of medical forms and consents and if you would charge by the word or page in this case.
Thank you in advance for your responses.

Medical Consent Forms Jun 30, 2010

I charge US agencies an average of US$ 0.15 per word for the Spanish > English back translation of medical forms so I imagine that the cost of the original translation would be much higher.

Clinical trials Oct 8, 2010

For medical trial patient consent forms, I did many translations, back translations and translation of back translations. It is not easy to select good words among different cultural backgrounds. A relatively higher rate is recommended (as provisions for frequent revisions).

Why should the rate for a BT be lower than the rate for the original translation? Oct 13, 2010

There's just as much work involved - why should the rate be less?icon_confused.gif
