The actual cost of translation can vary greatly from profject to project and will depend on the subject and complexity of your order, deadline, quality of the source files, workflow, and other factors.
Contact me, describe your project, and I'll be back shortly with a more or less exact quote.
I average 2,000-3,000 translated words/day
I average 4,000-7,000 reviewed words/day.
Translation of subtitles: From my previous experience, 1 minute of video = 130-160 words, which means 1 hour = 7,500-9,500 words. Since I translate 2,000-3,000 words/day, 1 hour of audio = 3+ days of work for me.
Success on every job, small or large, is the matter of self-respect. In my work I get to the bottom of the truth: I'll ask for clarification on every ambiguous sentence or string—the lack of context is the biggest foe. And in such field as localization, it is virtually impossible to do a proper job without asking you, the client, for clarification on strings.
Most certainly, I'll share an online spreadsheet with you where I will be adding my queries as I go. I'll ask you to keep checking it and give your answers at your convenience.
TERMS FOR AGENCIES
Currently, I can do a test only after you confirm you support my rates and if you'll provide a revised translation with the reviewer's corrections and suggested translation, will answer my questions about the content, and if it's no more than 350 words.
When you work with me your confidential information stays confidential. And, of course, it will not be disclosed at some later date, after project completion. I will sign an NDA.
I welcome early payments and I request all payments to be cleared within two weeks from project completion. This should be agreed beforehand.
