English to Polish
Oct 30, 2014

I was asked to translate from English to my mother tongue - Polish. This is a marketing text that consist of ca. 15000 words and should take a week to be done. Since I haven't worked in the field recently and I was asked to charge in USD (not EUR or PLN what I normally do), I am not sure how much money I should ask for. The price is obviously calculated by word.

Some more questions:

1. Is the price higher if you translate from your mother tongue to English (Polish to English in my example)? How much is it?

2. How much is the price for 1 hour of audio recording transcribing. These are interviews so I guess there can be many words... But the price should be settled for 1 hour of recording. (such 1 hour can probably take 1 or 2 days...) The are two options to consider:

- from Polish to Polish transcription
- from Polish directly to English transcription.

I will be grateful for any help. I am new to this website.

Hi. I believe it is slightly higher in the Polish to English direction, or pair. Oct 31, 2014

The average rates for Polish to English are $0.10-0.15 in my experience. The transcription rates are $7-10/min. (directly to English)

One hour of audio or video usually takes the whole day--8--10 hours.
