Hello everyone,

I'm a closed captioner with a years experience, and I just purchased my own Swift-Create License for L21 - 608/708 Closed Captions in order to do freelance work remotely for the two captioning companies I used to work at across the country (US). I notice a lot of posts asking about a typical freelance subtitle rates, but couldn't find one specific to captioning so I thought I'd pose the question to you all about the following:

Generally speaking, the types of videos I'd be doing caption work would be: films, scripted TV, reality TV, and documentaries. With that in mind, how much would you personally charge a company (both per video-minute AND hourly) to:
a) Originate English closed captions for those four genres. And how much for each of those?
b) Reformatting old, English closed caption files.
c) QC-ing English closed caption files.

If this has been answered already, feel free to link me to a different thread on this message board. But if I could get a direct response to these specific questions I'd be super grateful.

Have a great day!
