1) [url removed, login to view]
2) [url removed, login to view]
3) [url removed, login to view]

Total word count is 2,600 words.

I would like to proceed the following way. In order for me to determine your competence as a translator, I would ask you to submit a translation of the first 216 words(first 4 paragraphs) of document 1 ([url removed, login to view]). The translation will be checked by 2 native French speakers. Rest assured that I am not looking for free work - this only represents 7% of the entire project length - and I am asking everybody to submit translation of the same piece. This will, however, allow me to establish whether you are qualified to perform the project. I've had bad experience hiring translators here in the past, so now I have to check competence before assigning the task.

Please bid only if you agree with the following:

1. You are a French language native with outstanding French language skills.
2. All translated portuguese articles should have no grammatical errors, and be 100% true to the original english source article.
3. You are fluent in English.
4. You are capable of performing the project within 5 days of starting
5. Please only bid if you can start working on my project immediately.

I'd like to stress once again - ONLY bids submitted along with a sample translation will be accepted.
