    I would personally recommend this freelancer as it was a good experience to work with him , he did great work, worked hard to meet the time frame and ended the translation before that. He updated me on his progress and the communication with him was great. Overall great freelancer experience. will hire again for translation jobs.

    Hi,I run a professional content production company and we will soon be branching out into other languages apart from English. To start off the multilingual team I need two Portuguese speakers for a Brazilian client of mine. Applicants need to be solid writers with lots of experience (including with SEO), with a professional outlook. Applicants also need to be fluent in English to understand instructions and for communication. There will also be a chance for proof reading. The rates are $7 per 500 word article, $8.50 per 500 word web page or press release, and $1 per 500 word edit. Please send over a small introduction and samples of your work. Applicants who make the shortlist will be asked to write an article which they will be paid for (and hired) if it is satisfactory. This is not a free sample but part of the application process to assess good writers from bad, and so that new writers understand our writing style. Let me know if you have any questions and keep your bids low at $30 since we will be hiring full time after the initial project.Thanks,Antony.

    This job is about translating catalogs of plastic mold and press die mode. It&quot;s fine if you can&quot;t translate whole 50,000 words by your own because this job is allowed to be assigned to many translators. Besides the following needed languages, we also need translators who can translate simplified Chinese to traditional Chinese, English and Japanese.

Critical Recension of "A Modernidade Superada Arquitectura, Arte e Pensamento do Século XX"

Digital Repository of UE

Review of the book "A Modernidade Superada Arquitectura, Arte e Pensamento do Século XX" by Josep Maria Montaner associated with contemporary architecture and the non-places (Augé Marc theory).<br />A modernity, always contradictory and predatory, which can only renew its validity if abandones the dogmas and ethnocentric schemes, and accepts the diversity and quality of both, fragmentary and local experiences.
