How much should I charge for a summarized translation?

Someone has contacted me about translating a boring, non-fiction book that's just under 100 pages long (paperback sized); she needs the translation for a thesis she's writing. I'm not a professional translator and I have a part-time job that wouldn't allow me to translate the book by the time she needs it (the first week of November), but I said I could summarize each sub-chapter for her in one to two paragraphs. How much should I charge for that?? There's roughly 1 sub-chapter per page and a half.

The translation is from English to Spanish and I'm located in Spain.

Thanks in advance.
