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?

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.
