Hello everyone,

I have some difficulties to figure out a per minute rate for this type of work.

The project would be, at this point, 12 hours of video (60 minute segments). They would be able to supply me with both languages scripts.

This would be a multi-step process:

They would first need the Russian Script (again, already provided) timed to the video using Subtitle Workshop and exported as a time stamped text translation.

They would then provide me with a translation template and the English script for the Russian > English translation. They ask that I would copy and paste the English translation (which we would provide) into the Russian Microsoft Word translation template.

There would be no actual translation work involved in this, just the requirement to time the video and format the English translation. What would be an average capacity for this type of work and per minute rate?

Thank you,
