I think you must take in consideration the life cost of each country. May 3, 2017

In Germany, 2 Euros is very low if we are going to translate and subtitle... But here in Portugal no agency will pay you more than 1,5 Euros for that same job.

The price in most Chinese translation companies in subtitling is around 100 RMB(around 15 USD).

I think it is a reasonable price as it involves three major steps of dictating, translation and production of timeline. A minute of the video usually takes up to 20 minutes to 30 minutes to process all of them.

I also charge this price from some media companies that I have worked with and they are in agreement with me once I explain such efforts needed to produce high-quality subtitles.

Another tip from my personal practices is that, considering the subject, the length and the intensity of words distribution, the price is subject to around 10% discount.

Wow. that is a very high rate. lucky of you. and maybe it depends on the value of money in the target language country. could it be alright?

I had somework from chinese company and the rate for subtitling + translation is below 3 USD per video minute.
