English text from a computer program needs to be translated.
Text and sample translation attached.
The text will be provided directly from the source code, meaning each fragment is in a single line with linebreaks encoded by "\n". This format should be kept.
There are some words that are framed by percentage symbols (e.g. "%NAME%). Those are not to be translated but left in the translation at the appropriate spot.
It is important that the German text size does not exceed the English text by much, or the text won't fit into the GUI anymore. German text should be appropriately shortened, if necessary, without changing the meaning. For this additional effort we will pay $75 extra.
There are a little less than 15000 words to translate. We will pay around $25 per 1000 words including the coder's own proof reading, plus the $75 mentioned above. A bonus will be added if the job is done with high quality on time.
