Hi, I am an English student of translation currently completing my MA at the University of Westminster, London, UK. I work from French, Spanish and Catalan into English.

In order to complete my MA, I have to submit a translation of a 6,000-8,000 word text of a fairly technical or specialised nature. The text must not have been previously translated into English, and there must be a concrete and valid reason for requiring a translation of the text. It can be as specific as I like and can be of any nature, a whole or partial document (eg an entire Masters thesis or a few chapters of a book) and on any topic.

I am hoping that there is someone, somewhere who may be able to help me find such a text. I would be happy to do it for free, as long as the author/publisher gives their permission for the translation, and would also be happy for it to be a test translation for an agency. I would consider any offers, although I would prefer French or Spanish as I cannot find a supervising lecturer to oversee me for Catalan. If you can help in any way, please reply to this post or email me on Louisa_Smith@hotmail.com

I have always received lots of help from proz.com with my translation issues in the past, and have even ventured my own opinions on some questions, so I am hoping someone can help me now!

Thanks for your time

Louisa Smith
