I hope the client genuinely does not know the market, which I highly doubt; otherwise, this is outright exploitation!
And how long does it take to translate a 20-minute video?
I am assuming you mean timing, transcribing and translating all together? This depends on various factors, e.g. your personal skills and the nature of the video. Imagine how different the time needed will be to subtitle a BBC nature documentary and to subtitle, say, The Social Network
. I would recommend you to try your hand at it before attempting a real (paid) job.

I really doubted his price. I haven't done paid subtitling job before. So many clients these days tend to exploit. What makes me angry is that most of them gravely underestimate translation as a profession and assume it's as easy as typing some words.
Thank you for your feedback Zibow
