We are a marketing team at a US consumer goods company that owns several brands. We are seeking an individual who could proofread around 500-100 words (1-2 pages) for a Canadian website for one of the brands we manage. These words have been translated from English to French, and once again, the content is intended to be viewed on a French Canadian website.
We need someone who could read the content and determine the following:
1. Does the translation make sense? If a French-speaking Canadian read the content, would he/she fully understand? Does it read as if a native French-speaking Canadian wrote it?
2. Does the content itself appeal to the Canadian market? In other words - is there anything in the content that would raise a red flag to a consumer?

The turnaround for this project should be no more than 1-2 days. If we are pleased with the job, we will recommend you to the rest of our company to consider when they begin the process of translating as well.
