We are looking for a native speaker (or equivalent) with a good understanding of English to translate a one and a half page word document. The document is 846 words in length, and the translation then needs to be placed within a supplied webpage template.
The document is mainly bullet points/short statements describing basic education related services. It does however have a small number of education specific acronyms, as well as place names, which will require a careful and appropriate translation.
The overall job is straightforward and we have had the document previously translated in to six other languages so there are a large number of examples of what we’re looking for.
Another suitably skilled individual may also be contracted to check and provide feedback on the translation prior to payment being authorised. Any bidder needs to realise this and appreciate that they are a key part of a team working towards achieving the best possible translation.
A representative sample of material from the document is given as follows:
What’s great about New Zealand?
- New Zealand is an English-speaking country
- Top quality education in a pleasant, safe, learning environment
- Internationally recognised degrees
- Consistently high standards of education in universities, tertiary training providers and high schools
- Beautiful scenery surrounding all cities
- Friendly helpful people
We expect to select a service provider on Thursday 14 December or Friday 15 December, and require the translation to be completed by the end of Monday 18 December.
We prefer to use the escrow system and you need to tell us at time of bidding if you require another form of payment.
