Project Description

I need writers with good English and Chinese skills to translate how-to articles to Chinese (Simplified Characters). Articles range in length, but average around 600-800 words.

You need to have excellent Chinese grammar and spelling, and very good English comprehension. Computer translated articles will not be accepted. We are not seeking word-for-word, literal translations. Instead, we want you to write in natural sounding Chinese using the English content as source material. The goal of this project is to create fully localized content that is helpful and reads naturally to Chinese readers - we don't want articles that track the grammar, phrasing, or idioms of English.

Contractors who do a good job and deliver articles reliably will be offered regular work. The first stage of the job is a 2 article test, which is what you are bidding on here. Good performance on the test will lead to you being offered additional work on similar articles and rate. We have a thousands of articles to translate, and can offer continuous work to those who reliably produce quality articles.

As part of your application, we would like you to rewrite the following sections of one of our articles in natural-sounding Chinese. Those writers who do a good job with this will be offered a chance to complete the paid test. When you have completed your translation of the sample, please include it in your cover letter.

In your message, please include your full name. After we review your sample, we will contact you via [url removed, login to view] with more information.

How to Be Bold


If you're shy, hesitant, or passive, you run the risk of leading a boring life marked by routine and unfulfilled goals. Most progress has been led by people who were bold--scientists, public servants, artists, entrepreneurs, and others who didn't wait for opportunities; they created opportunities. So if you want to be bold and unstoppable, here are some ways to kick start your momentum.


Rediscover who you are. Ultimately, boldness has to do with coming from your center, what you believe. It is not about what you do, it is about who you are. If you do not know who you are, you can never be truly bold. Start really appreciating your uniqueness. Discover what makes you different and then parade it around for all to see. Put flags on it, call attention to it and love yourself for it no matter what others think. That is the heart of boldness.


* Don't confuse being bold with being aggressive. Aggressiveness often involves imposing your viewpoints or actions on others. Boldness has nothing to do with the people around you; it's about overcoming your fears and taking action.


*Remember: there is a difference between being bold and being suicidal. If you know doing something will hurt you, it doesn't matter how bold you are; don't do it.
