Project Description

I have written a 60k word book about alcohol and health. It's self-published and is only available via Amazon [url removed, login to view]

I need it translated into French, Italian, German and Spanish.

My ideal translator in each language will have the following:

1. Be a native speaker/writer - preferably bilingual

2. Humanities degree, including English

3. Experience in writing about medicine at a fairly intelligent level

4. A good sense of humour

5. Understanding of British humour, and how to convert it into his/her own language

6. Experience of translating general non-fiction from English

Although my book is based on serious medical research, it is written in a lively manner. So the translators I am looking for should ideally share some of my motivations: in particular, understanding the importance of accurate reporting of scientific evidence, but being able to convey these dry facts in an engaging way.

I understand enough French, Spanish and Italian to be able to judge a translator's skills, so I will need to see examples of previous work.
