Hi everyone, I am looking to hire accomplished translators for a series of audio travel guides. This will require creative translations of English prose into several languages, including German, French, Spanish, Italian and Mandarin. Each individual document is an audio travel guide of approximately 10,000 words. I have attached a sample script for reference - the first 1,000 words of one guide. As you can see, we will require a bright, engaging and creative translation, rather than something dry and academic. Please quote for completing the translation of each 10,000 word document. As we potentially have many of these to translate, it would also be helpful to know if you are able to offer a bulk rate for multiple projects. I look forward to hearing from you. Many thanks, Joe
