I need to translate some 30,000 words from Italian into American English. The ideal candidate is a native American who has lived or studied in Italy. I might also take into consideration bilinguals but any other nationality won't be taken into account. The work to be translated is a fiction story set in US. The wording and the situations are simple and I'm looking for someone who will use a simple American English. Rather than have a literal translation, I would like a translator who can render the same images and feelings "the American way". The final work has to be polished and proofread. The work will be given in September. Per favore, rispondete dando una stima del costo e tempo di esecuzione. Inoltre fatemi sapere come e dove avete studiato l'italiano e che esperienza avete. Ai candidati più interessanti invierò alcuni paragrafi da tradurre per valutarne la capacità. Grazie
