How to make a price quote for translation of a web page, if the client doesn't provide any source files, but just refers to his web site which - of course - is on the web. And it's a quite complex dynamic site where the visitors can make different queries and get customized information in response. Probably some 30K words or more.
By the way, I'm wondering if he will provide any files at all, when the real work starts. I have the feeling that he is expecting the translator to extract all the content from the web site. Is this possible for such a complex site as described above? How do the web page translators usually handle this kind of jobs?
