40 pages of 300wrds each into German

English>German



personal use - can\'t pay more than the budget posted.



Beispieltext (den Bieter übersetzen müssen)



As soon as you enter, you should be paying attention. Who is

with who. Where are most of the chicks? On the dance floor,

sitting, by the bar, standing, dispersed? Make notes of where

they are and where there isn\'\'t much competition. Most

importantly, you should be on the look out for single women.

Try to spot them from the entrance. As soon as you do, head

over in her general direction. If she is by the bar, order a

drink next to her.



Pricing:



$160 total





Aww bless - the topic is quite hilarious, and so is the suggested payment - just short of 1/6 of what most translators would charge... Anyhow, just wanted to share that - not being mean, it really DID make me giggle insanely. Have a good day in Translation World everbody - and a good weekend!

Bless indeed! Aug 23, 2002

Though I\'m sure our german speaking friends can\'t be in need of any advice on how to chat up the LADIES!





Cheers & have a good weekend yourself!

Pathetic... Aug 23, 2002

If our friend intends to be as tight-walleted with the \"chicks\" he\'s likely to pick up as he is with us poor translators, I don\'t predict a lot of success for him in this area.

This joke isn´t funny anymore Aug 25, 2002

Seems to me that a clueless German wants to learn how to pick up girls with a manual.

I feel sorry for him, and I wouldn´t go on with the mockery.

no offense - just thought it was amusing - didn\'t mean to really mock - still... being a \"chick\" I don\'t think it\'s gonna work. have a good weekend all - and good luck with the old \"pulling\" if that\'s what is on the cards!

Help files? Aug 26, 2002

This looks strangely like the help files from an old computer game entitled \"Larry the lounge lizard\" from Sierra software.



I wonder just how personal the use will be ....
