I've self published two novels in English under the pen name James Grenton. 'The Somali Doctrine' is 83,000 words and 'Black Coke' is 110,000 words. Both are ebooks on Kindle. Both are thrillers. I'm a journalist by background and wrote them to raise money for Alkaptonuria, the rare disease affecting my children.

If you're interested, please let me know:

- How much you would charge to translate one or both into German?
- What would the timescale be?
- Do you have experience of translating novels from English into German?
- Could you send samples of book translations you've already done?
- Do you proof-read your translations yourself?

All the best,
Nick Sireau
