We need proofreaders/translators to work on:
FRENCH, ITALIAN, SPANISH, RUSSIAN, ARABIC, JAPANESE, CHINESE version of a book. Text turn around 25 000 words. The book is 256 pages. Please see attached part of the book to get the idea about the book and it's complexity. There are many pages with just photos.
A provider will be using the English 2nd Edition (ready), comparing it with the first Edition of the above languages, proofreading those languages and adding missing texts (around 5000 words to translate).
A suitable provider should be native of the proposed language, know english very well (should be able to translate from english) and have proofreading skills.
It would be a big plus if provider can work in InCopy or would be able to install InCopy and make proofreading/translating work there (we can explain how to work there, it wouldn't be anything complicated).
No software text manipulation, we strictly accept only human translation.

Ariau Amazon Towers is a book about the Amazon region: nature, travel, expeditions, animals, landscapes... it is much more a photographic than a reading experience. The first edition was in 9 languages: portuguese (the original language), english, french, italian, spanish, russian, arabic, japanese, chinese.
We are now on the second edition, improving design and text as well as photography.

VERY IMPORTANT! The posted budget is for the whole project...
WE CAN PAY from $250 to $500 for each language.
