Voice over and translation rate Aug 21, 2014

In my opinion, you can add a little bit to your translation rate and you will obtain translated voice over rate.
For example, if you translate at the rate of 10 USD/page, then you can add 2-3 USD per page voice over.
The above rate was for Uzbek-English translation for which there are a few translators available in the market. Maybe for Russian translation, the rate are lower due to tough competition.

Voice over Aug 21, 2014

Hi Ekaterina

I calculate the price for voice over per minute. For example if you have a text of 1,000 words the time for the recording is +/- 10 min. (roughly 100 words /minute)
But nevertheless here you should also consider if the voice over is a commercial advert, radio, TV...
I send here one link so that you can see how the voice over is calculated (please take in account that there are many other links where you can see the calculation.

I hope this helps a little bit.

regards

Ines
