A source and target language may also affect the price of the multimedia translation and localization, so a translation rate of a rare language is higher. For example, a translation of a video from Indonesian to Mongolian will cost much higher compared to a translation from French to Spanish, simply because fewer multimedia translators available for this language combination.
