Hi everybody,

My company is trying to find a translator for Arabic to Dari, and I realized we have no idea about that particular language pair.
So my first question would be - how likely are we to find somebody qualified to translate business management training materials from Arabic to Dari? In Afghanistan?
2. What would the usual rate be? Or is it a too specific lang. combo to say "usual"? What would be the rates for English-Dari or English-Arabic or Arabic-English?
3. What is the word-to-word ratio? For example, in my case, Croatian-German is usually 1:1.25, i.e. the German translation would usually have 25-30% more words/characters, and Croatian-English usually differs by about 10%.

Thanks!
Alex
