A colleague of mine has been asked to translate a screenplay from English into German. I was wondering what the current average rates are for this type of work. What would be considered a reasonable price range?

You can give a word rate, hourly rate or blanket contract rate depending on the terms. Is this an adaptation, and will he be required to intervene in shooting?

As far as I know Oct 7, 2011

the screenplay is 60 pages long and the colleague was considering € 25 per page as an offer, which would work out at € 250 to 275 per day.
