the location of the tour

the length and type of the tour, and

the quality of the original translation

the number of pages, and

the schedule for delivery.

A typical quote might be 200 RMB for five pages (single spaced) of text with minor errors in spelling, punctuation, and grammar.  Work which requires consultation with the translator is considerably higher.
