English to German Translator

Our company seeks writers with good English and German skills to translate how-to articles to German. Articles range in length, but average around 600-800 words.

You need to have excellent German 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 German 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 German 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 German. 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 message.

How to Be Bold

Introduction:

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.

Steps:

Make the first move. Whenever you're feeling hesitant--especially in your interactions with others--swallow your pride and make the first move. Ask your acquaintance if they'd like to go to the bar down the street for drinks after work. Tell the person you fancy that you've got two tickets to a concert and you'd like them to come with you. Give your significant other a big hug and apologize for that time you overreacted a few months ago. Smile and wink at the attractive cashier.

Tips:

* 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.

Warnings:

*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.
