Project Description


We need a translator for an e-book project. The e-book is a collection of recipes written in Chinese (Taiwan). The recipes are traditional Chinese cuisine. There are a total of 115 recipes plus book introduction (about 1347 characters). We only need the translation of the recipes. We can take care of the layout. The English translation written beneath each Chinese recipe would work very well.

The best person for the job will have excellent written English skills (native speaker level) and preferably have an understanding of cooking. Some experience reading and cooking from recipes in English cookbooks will be very helpful. This job may best suit someone who has lived in North America and knows native English terms for ingredients and cooking processes. We prefer a casual tone of written English.

Please apply for this project with an example of English written by you (it can be on any topic). Please find a sample of 5 recipes attached. This should give you a good idea of what this project is all about. We look forward to meeting and working with you!

Thank you,
