How much doyou think one should charge to check subtitles? Not to do a close revision with the source language, but to check that it sounds good in the target language and that there is nothing which wouldn't make sense to the audience

Just to give an idea... Oct 7

Rates vary in my langauge pair, from $1 to $3.50.

Per hour of your time Oct 9

If you ask me, you should charge per hour of time it took you after the job is done. You don't know what quality to expect beforehand and if there is more to do than just checking what you say (if you spot bad translations, won't you correct them?), a per minute rate will not necessarily be fair. Decide what hourly rate your work is worth.
