I could use some advice. How do you charge for the translation of a video? Per word or per minute?
Thanks.

Translation of a video Jun 11, 2015

Hello,
It usually is per minute of video, providing you have a script of what is said. Otherwise, the price is still per minute but you should charge more for the transcript.

Translation or subtitling? Jun 11, 2015

As far as I know, subtitling is usually charged by the minute.
If you are not subtitling but merely translating a provided script, then I am not sure about it. I suppose that in this case you can proceed as if it were a standard text and charge by word.

Thank you for your help, Tia. Jun 11, 2015

I think I will charge my translation/transcreation rate, since I have the script.
