I need a GAF'er to translate an ebook from English into German. The language used in the ebook is "every day" and there is nothing technical, so really an advanced German writing student could probably do this job.
Ebook is 25,160 words or 143,601 characters with spaces.
Translator must be able to write excellent German. Finished item will be proof read by native German, who speaks and writes German as a mother language, so please only apply if you can do this project properly.
When you submit your bid, kindly submit a translation of these few paragraphs. Thanks.
Stop Smoking Medicine - How Effective Is It?
Summary: Both conventional and alternative stop smoking medicine are available in the market. This is a comparative analysis of the two kinds.
Stop smoking medicine is divided into two main types - conventional medicine and alternative medicine. The conventional medicine is that which doctors prescribe. This kind of medicine is generally prescribed in conjunction with other smoking cessation therapies, which indicates that it is not able to work by itself. Alternative stop smoking medicine is making its presence felt in a big way today. This medicine contains formulations of traditionally developed herbs and is totally natural.
Conventional medicine has been used for a long time in smoking cessation, but its development has occurred only recently. There are many well-known brands that are prescribed to smokers, such as NicVAX, Wellbutrin or Zyban, Chantix, etc. The common thing in all these medicines is that they are actually antidepressants and their major role in smoking cessation is to prevent depression pangs from happening in the smoker.
Most doctors would also agree that the medicines they prescribe to their smokers have little more than a placebo effect. The truth is, though these medicines are antidepressants, the body may become immune to them after a certain period of time. After that, only a placebo effect remains. In addition, such stop smoking medicine can help mild smokers to give up their habit, but they would prove to be largely ineffective in hardened smokers.
That is the reason why doctors always prescribe their stop smoking medicine in addition to some therapy like the nicotine patch. The nicotine patch itself is controversial, because it does contain nicotine. The effectiveness of using nicotine to wean away a nicotine addiction is highly debated even in the medical field itself. Behavior therapies are also prescribed, but their effectiveness is highly subjective.

FINALLY PLEASE ONLY APPLY IF YOU ARE SERIOUS SERVICE PROVIDER, WHO DELIVERS QUALITY WORK ON TIME AND WHO CAN WRITE GERMAN IN THE SAME WAY AS IT IS SPOKEN/WRITTEN IN GERMANY.
ALSO PLEASE ONLY APPLY IF YOU MEAN TO DO THE JOB AND FINISH IT. Announcing on the day when completion is due "Thank you for the opportunity, but I underestimated the time allotment. I cannot complete the task. Sorry for the trouble." like Darry1L did, just wastes our time and prevents serious providers like you from getting work.
Thanks for bidding!
