I have been asked to create Italian subtitles for an American series.
I have to do everything from scratch (transcrtiption, time doce etc). I am not going through a company, but dealing directly with the client.
How much do you suggest I ask per minute? I was thinking 8 euros
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Let me add something Jun 17, 2009

This is the company I work for who has just started in subtitling and is asking me (experienced subtitler) how much they can charge this client for this service.
The rate should be good for both of us, namely, not extortionate for them, not ridiculous for us.
Please it would be so helpful if someone could reply.
Is 8-9 euro about right? Hence I could ask for around 3.50 for my service.
Many thanks
