I passed a translation test for an agency providing subtitling for major motion pictures and Hollywood productions. The recruiter informed me that my test was successful and sent docs to sign, among others rate agreement. For the language combination English-Swedish they are willing to pay $3.50/program minute for translation. I have vast translation experience, but little in the subtitling business although I am eager to try out this field. Can anyone advise on the rates? It seems to me the proposed rates are quite low. Thanks in advance.

Yes, USD 3.50 per audio minute is too low. The rate should not be less than USD 5.00/audio minute, which is the minimum.
