A 400 word article has been translated from German to English. Preferred: native english speaker fluent in German, but I will also consider native Germans with near-native english fluency.

I need proofreading and editing. I will send you the source document and draft translation. It needs to be perfect, as such I need you to check for:

-Mistranslations. The initial translator is unsure of Bolded sentences /phrases - please double check these and make sure they represent the best english translation of the sentence. Please correct them if you see fit, and please include a brief explain of why your translation is better. You can send me the explanations of changes in a message on elance.

-English punctuation and grammar. I also require Americani"z"ed spelling. Once again, you need excellent english writing and editing skills. Again, please make a list of changes with explanations.

I stress again that the final document needs to be PERFECT. This should not take very long...
