Hello, everyone!

I would like to ask you if you have any idea how much does it cost the following service and how is it calculated! For example - you have to translate two or five minutes of one video material into another language and just record your translation on a file, without typing it.

I would be really grateful if you can give me some information about that.
Thank you in advance.

Minimu job fee Aug 21, 2011

From what i see on Proz all the time and i do quote on it as well, the recording companies are willing to pay 250 - 400 $US for every TAPE hour, meaning not by the working hours but according to the time on the tape.

I hope this can help you

Good Luck

someone told me Aug 21, 2011

that, for straight translation (and not recording) they pay by the hour counting the hours necessary as 8 times the length of the tape so, if it is a 15 minute tape, they would pay for 2 hours.
Hope this helps
