White sun of the desert - English translation

Budget $30 - $250 USD
Bids 12
Average Bid $324

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 [url removed, login to view]
My intentions here are somewhat academic so feel free to include any comments that may arise directly in the transcript.

Example:
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.

If you are looking for somebody with a great command of the English and Russian languages, then you've stumbled upon the right profile. In 2009, I graduated from the Omsk State University (Russia) with a professional degree in Teaching English as a Foreign Language specializing in North-American accent training and minoring in translations in Russian-English-German. Though I am fluent in Russian and English, German is the language I can perfectly translate from, but not into since I am not at a near-native-like level in my German written output. Shortly after graduation, I moved to the USA where I work on various projects in translation along with teaching English as a Second Language to immigrants. I can accept projects related to translation and proofreading in the above-mentioned languages as well as improving English and Russian skills and writing SEO optimized articles. I am currently enrolled in TESOL MA program and lovin' (wink) it so far!!!
