Hi,
I'm working on a fun new project and I need several popular English songs translated into Mandarin Chinese (and possibly Japanese, Korean and/or Spanish) in two ways: (1) a word-for-word literal translation of each word in the song, (2) a contextual translation that will make sense if the song is sung in the non-English language. I would need need (1) and (2) above to be translated both in Chinese characters as well as phonetic transliteration (and Japanese in Kanji and phonetic, etc.). Initially, I need translations for three songs (and I can provide the lyrics), but more songs will likely follow. The initial three songs are:
- Wake Me Up When September Ends (Green Day)
- Bright Lights (Matchbox Twenty)
- I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For (U2)
Please advise if you would be interested, as well as your rate and an estimate for this work. Again, if all goes according to plan, there would be much more work (many more songs) to come.
Thanks and best regards,
Dave Davis
