To translate is a Novella with approximate 24.000 words from German into English. The translation needs to be done from somebody who has translated novels before and is English native speaker. I am looking for somebody who will translate all my novels in future but I would like to start with this short novella before I spend money for a full lenght novel.

I would like to ask all interested freelancers to translate an excerpt, that I have an idea of the work, you provide. I can send you the page. The program don't let me attach the file here, don't know, why.
If you like to know a bit more about the book, the German edition is available at Amazon (DE)   [obscured]  /uVSWyG (UK)   [obscured]  /lXad7m (COM)   [obscured]  /lXFhFj
Thank you.
