I did a quick search in Internet and found a typical rate list for Chinese language. It seems to be an agency but how big it is I dont know. Since they have published their rates in their website we can know what is the going rate for Chinese language.

Read below:

$0.12 per source word for written translation.
For jobs involving less than 170 words, the fee is $20
The rate is the same for translating English-to-Chinese and Chinese-to-English.
