Hi!

Does anybody know the rates in subtitling from English to Greek per minute and per word in USD?

I am only aware for Greek rates (that sucks big time)

I tried to find out but... Greek is a rare language in subtitling...

Thank you all in advance for your answers.

Let's say 1 minute video takes you 5 minutes to subtitle. In an hour, you can only 12 minutes video and you get paid 7.2USD and that is less than the average wage here in the UK.
