I have written a very short (6000 words) general philosophy book called "Surfing Life Waves" which compares elements of life to surfing (the water sport).

I would like to have my work translated so that I can share the message with a wider audience.

The translation should be clear, accurate and accessible, hopefully conveying my message in a similar tone. We may need to include a glossary for some of the English surf-specific words that appear in my text (for example "barrel", which refers to being inside of a wave).

I attach a short sample of the text for your reference.
