Help!

I'm being asked to translate a series of mostly dialogue short sketch comedy script for TV. Never done that before. Any suggestions on pricing?

Is it audio? Jun 22, 2012

If so, by the minute/hour.
If it is written, by word.

Timing Jun 22, 2012

You might take into account that the timing factor is all-important for TV. If you have to adjust the timing, it's going to take "time" to do it, and that translates into money.

Aside from the timing factor, and if this translation is for dubbing, you also need to ensure a lip-synx translation.

Much success!
