Project Description

Dear valued and very appreciated freelancers,

please be so kind and read the project description very precisely , also the budget as it wont be negotiable. Only apply if you agree with everything you read.

As I) am honest and reliable, I expect the same from you!

The project is about the following already at amazon available german book and it has to be translated into german. The book has 302 pages and around 220 are already translated by a translater who had to quit due to health issues. So you would newly have to translate around 90 pages and proof read the rest correcting eventual mistakes in grammar, spelling or choice of words.

Find the amazon info here:

The fixed budget for the project is 500USD. The translator will also receive 5% from the books profit lifetime and receive sales reports each month.

The book had excellent german reviews and one reviewer remarked that it definitely had Harry Potter potential, so the five percent might be a very profitable perspective.

After i have assigned the project to you you will receive your first 100USD via milestone, 150 after sending 50% of the work and the rest after end of your work. There will be a precise contract guaranteeing you the lifetime profit from each book sale (including ebook and audio book sales in english)

As the book is about self improvement and considered to be very inspiring and entertaining it will be an advantage to be able to tune yourself in while reading and finding appealing words.

Short sample pdf attached /2,5 pages from the intro to let me check your style. Native german speaker would be nice. Skype or messenger recommended to stay in contact with me.

Happy applying and thanks a lot for taking the time to read the project - could be a wonderful cooperation.

Best regards

Aquasunjo
