The goal of this project is relatively simple. Produce a English translation of the 1970 Russian film "White sun of the desert" that is of higher quality than the translated subtitles currently available. I prefer to deviate from literal translations and lean towards a more creative translation. Each sentence should flow naturally in English. I will be willing to pay a bonus for truly extraordinary work.
-You must be fluent in both English AND Russian.
-The work should be neatly organized in transcript format
-Each line is to be typed in Russian, followed by the translation on the next line
The movie is public domain and can be downloaded from https://archive.org/details/WhiteSunOfTheDesert
My intentions here are somewhat academic so feel free to include any comments that may arise directly in the transcript.
Sukhov: Обратно пишу вам, любезная Катерина Матвеевна...
Sukhov: I'm writing to you again, dear Katerina Matveyevna...
Comments: this is how i would prefer you comment or elaborate.
