Dear translators,


Recently there is a company offering USD1.00 per minute for translating subtitles of a video, a movie. If the duration is about 2.5 hours (just a proximate guess), it means to produce a subtitling of a video to target language, the translator will earn 60minutes x 2.5 x USD1.00 = USD150.00. Is it worthy in your target language? Even, when the job could be given four times a month, could we say the agency appreciates a translator with his rate?

Warm regard,
Alex ST

Yes, Veronica. I copied the thread.

Should we focus to "appreciate" for this thread?
