Also, there's a book called "the translator guide" it can give you many ideas how translation really works. How the market is nowadays relating to the business itself. And yet, there’re some suggestions when it comes to prices that a translator should or not ask for a job.

 

Another thing, translation is an art. Unfortunately, it’s not for everyone. More than know the both language a translator must know a lot about the culture that the translation
will be done into. I’ve seen many French movies translated into English and vice versa. Even from Portuguese into English most of them just don’t work. The contrasts
between culture and background usually are huge.
