I'm looking for someone to translate a lecture delivered in English by a German writer/director who speaks excellent English. The lecture is 106 minutes long, including the Q & A, which also must be transcribed.

The transcriber should correct minor grammatical mistakes so that the text reads well. It will be published in print and/or online. Please use British English spelling.

Applicants should sample the attached MP3 file and make a fixed-price quote for the job.

Completion deadline: August 20, 2012 (can be extended if necessary).

This lecture is part of an ongoing series. A satisfactory collaboration on this first job could lead to additional transcription work (approx. 5-8 such lectures spread out over the year).

Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing back from you.
