Can you translate French LITERATURE into AMERICAN English?
Let me precise: I am NOT looking for a TECHNICAL translator.
Please do NOT try to fool using Google Translation or other software. I majored in English and my English is more than decent. I will recognize immediately the effort you have put in trying to match my original writing style.
Based on your mail exchange last week, we agree on you to translate the PETITE FLEUR text for $135.
Here we go.;-)
Hope you will enjoy the text while giving birth to its English!
Pelase do not forget to find a relevant title...
“Marc is a man who works with true passion. Then everything follows.”
Je découvre ce site aujourd'hui et votre profil. J'ai une nouvelle (short story) à faire traduire du FRANCAIS vers L'AMERICAIN. Elle fait 1570 mots. Voici mes questions :

“When I was searching for a translator to translate my literary work from French to English, not only was I searching for someone with a mastery of English syntax and vocabulary. I was also looking for someone who could really understand the identity of my writing style and had the skills and energy to best trasncribe it into the translation. Marc may sometime have a blunt communication, but with him, one sure thing, you will only have good surprises. Deadlines, quality of work, communication transparency, he has them all and he loves what he is doing! You can feel it, you can see it on the end result. Marc is the man! I know I should not write such a review so as to keep him as my secret English translator. But Marc did such a great job at capturing my author's voice into English! Trust me, you won't be disappointed! ”
My need is quite simple and here is my situation:
- I'm an indie CRIME fiction writer with some Photoshop skills. I have the skills to create my book covers on my own.
- on some other popular site, you find people offering you to create your original
eBook cover for $5.
To be honest, I'll always wondered what real real those "$5 ...
