I wonder if anyone would be willing to give me some ballpark figures for this kind of work? I know Nothing about it, but forwarded a potential job offer to a native Spanish speaking translator friend and we're trying to figure out what the normal rates for this usually are.

Thanks in advance, Proz. community.

Well, all I can say as general information is that what you will be facing paragraphs made of lists of individual, sometimes unrelated nouns and concepts, separated by commas or other separators, no articles, very few prepositions, with customer-specific terminology.

I recommend to be careful when quoting for this kind of work, since you will see that the time required to translate this can be much longer than regular text.

At best, and as with any other translation job, you should request a fair sample of the work before quoting.

Good luck!
