Project Description

This is is for Spanish only (Central or South American Spanish preferred) do not reply for any other language.
Are you interested in having a book translation on your resume or to be able to show businesses a hard copy of a book you translated with your name on the cover with the author?
Any replies to this offer that does acknowledge that you have read this carefully will be deleted.
I wrote a book for my children and at the urging of friends I self published it. It is now available on Kindle and Amazon.com.
[url removed, login to view]
It has 33 reviews already and every single one is good!!!
I advise you to take the time to read through the reviews and also read the first 2 chapters I uploaded or use Amazons “Look inside” feature to see if this is a project you would like to be involved.
I am looking for a writer who is also a translator. The translation needs to be able to keep the warm , friendly and conversational style of the book.
So how much am I offering for this demanding work which is a little less than 50,000 words.
Nothing up front. So why would you do it?
1. I will give you all the profits from the sales of the book with your translation up to an agreed amount. I would take nothing until you had been paid what you feel it is worth it for the time and the risk involved.
2. You will receive equal billing with your name underneath mine labeled as the translator. This might be very useful in your carear.
3. I will take your translation and make an electronic version of it for distribution on kindle and other e-readers that support your language.
4. I will produce art work and files for the book in a Print-on-demand format so that it can be listed on Amazon etc or any site that supports print on demand in Spanish.
5. I will supply these files to a printer in the USA that will enable the books to be printed at about $3 a copy. (plus shipping) You can then purchase them yourself and se;;/distribute them yourself at whatever price you think is appropriate for your market.
6. I will sell and distribute them in Hooduras for you as that is where I live.
(Note you may want to check if these sites are available in your language as if it cannot be distributed and sold how will you get paid???)
7. Lastly I will aid you with any publicity, interviews or in any manner I can to help copies be sold in your language.
None of this makes any sense unless you think the book is worth it. I believe it is but I am biased. 33 viewers on Amazon think it’s great but they are not you! So if this offer interests you, and you have read the reviews and the first chapter. Contact me I will send you an electronic version of the whole book to read. Then we can go from there...
Lastly I actually live on a beautiful Caribbean island and I would love to have my collaborators come and stay as my guest on vacation. So hope fully we can lay in the sun, snorkel the reef, practice handstands and have a drink together someday.
Respectfully
Chas
