Job type: Translation/editing/proofing job
Service required: Translation

Languages: English to French, English to Norwegian (Bokmal)

Job description:

I have a large manual to be translated into French (standard European) and Norwegian (Bokmaal). It deals with the uses of essential oils for health purposes. Each project has a 6-week turnaround.

I am looking, if possible, for translators who have a personal interest and deep knowledge of essential oils, or if not, who are very conversant in botany and basic health care issues.

In each case, my ideal solution would be to have, at most, a team of two translators working in close collaboration.

Please provide detailed information about your background, and translate the sample shown below.

I am deliberately giving a very broad range of rates, but competitive rate will be a consideration in choosing the supplier(s).
