Hello, I have written a short book titled "The Ascension of the Blind Princess." It appears to be a children's book, but the content is more suitable for adults. As the illustrator's family speaks Spanish, I would like to release a Spanish edition of the book along with the English version. Credit for the translator will be given in the book. I am looking for a translator who can: 1)Translate with accuracy 2) Stay true to the style of the writing Please see the attached opening pages of the story. I am asking that any candidate wanting to bid on the job translate these three pages of text into Spanish. I will then, give the translated versions to friends and colleagues who speak both Spanish and English and select the final candidate based on those results. Please submit your translations in a pdf format. The entire book, including cover pages, illustrations, copyright page, biographies, etc is about 82 pages. The story itself will be about 63 pages of wide spaced text on 8x10 sheets of paper. Thank you for your time and consideration. Robert Tomoguchi
