    I am looking for some writers which translate English articles in my language.
    Normal post length.
    I have some applied over one of my websites.
    What you consider a fair salary for them in translating a 400-600 word article.

    Thanks

    I would consider $60 to $80 per piece as a fair price, considering the amount of work required:

    (1) Research the topic (could be a few hours depending on the subject) and write it - About $30 to $40
    (2) Translate it to lets say 3 different languages (assuming the character set is the same for each of these languages) - about $30 to $50
    (3) Check grammar, punctuation and context for each of the three languages.


    The above price is on the assumption that the writer is fluent in English and these three languages.

    Go with a site like speaklike.com. Depending on the quality you need the cost will be $0.06 to $0.20 per word. Their translators are already tested and approved so you don't have to worry if your stuff is really being translated correctly.
