Project Description

Suche einen Übersetzer für eine langfristige - also mehrere Monate oder Jahre - Zusammenarbeit. Wir bieten zZ. 3 Eurocent pro geschriebenem/ übersetztem Wort an. Und ihr könnt so viel übersetzten wie ihr nur wollt, da wir hunderte Artikel haben, die übersetzt werden müssen und täglich weitere dazukommen, im Schnitt haben die Artikel zwischen 500-700w, in Ausnahmefällen auch mal 1500. Gearbeitet wird mit Wordpress, d.h. ihr kriegt einen Autorenaccount auf unserer Webseite, und werdet die übersetzten Artikel direkt dort schon abspeichern, inkl. dem Einfügen von Bildern, Videos und Tweets aus dem Originalartikel. Das Projekt wird übrigens mit einem Fulltime upgrade upgegraded, d.h. für euch fallen keine Freelancer Gebühren an. Dieses upgrade funktioniert jedoch nur bis $5000, dann fallen wieder Gebühren an, wenn $5000 also überschritten worden sind, werden wir euch ein zweites Projekt anbieten, damit ihr erneut keine Gebühren zahlen müsst. Also Brutto=Netto :D

Um eure Übersetzungsfähigkeiten zu beweisen, würden wir euch bitten folgende Abschnitte zu übersetzen und einfach per Nachricht an uns zu schicken:

Colonel Gaddafi, a man of many visions, had dreamed of seeing an abundance of fresh water in Libya, and wanted to make his home country stand as a proud and free nation. In 1953, the quest for black gold in the vast deserts that reside in the southern part of Libya, led to the discovery of oil and fossil water. The quadruple aged water aquifers that were uncovered in the 50s had projected sizes varying from 4,500 to 20,000 cubic kilometers. The majority of this water supply was accumulated almost 15,000 to 25,000 years ago, while some water tanks are believed to be a few thousand-years-old.

After a hardcore battle between Gaddafi and Muhammad Idris bin Muhammad al-Mahdi as-Senussi, King of Libya, Gaddafi and his army acquired power in a coup against Muhammad Idris in 1969. The new government, also called the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, made the oil companies state owned and invested a great deal of the oil profits to funnel the flow of drinking water from the underground aquifers, by installing a large number of bore wells throughout the Libyan land. Big farms were created in a southern region of Libya to motivate men and women to relocate to the desert and farm in those places. However, a lot of people in Libya preferred living in the northern and coastal parts of the country, for there was a steady and ample supply of water there.

In Libya’s case, the bombardment on the water supply system created a ‘problem’. Subsequently, a ‘reaction’ in the form of an instantaneous prevailing need, was triggered. More than 60% of the country’s people depended on the Great Man-Made River water supply for personal and commercial use. However, a few days after the demolition of the Great Man-Made River, over 50% of Libya had no running water. Finally, an established ‘solution’ was enforced – make the people of the war-torn nation reliant on a single water source – and consequently bound the people to their new ‘democratic’ government.
