Long-term literature translation project for Saga

Job posted at: Sep 9, 2019 12:12 GMT   (GMT: Sep 9, 2019 12:12)

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

Languages: Norwegian (Bokmal) to Danish, Norwegian (Bokmal) to English, Norwegian (Bokmal) to Finnish, Norwegian (Bokmal) to Swedish

Job description:


This is Tanja from EasyTranslate. We have a new exciting translation project for a publishing house Saga. In Denmark they have been around for many years, and since 2014 they have been rapidly expanding internationally.

We are honored to help them translating new series of novels from Norwegian to English (UK), Swedish, Danish and Finnish.

The topic of the books will be erotic which is considered as a fun field to work with from experience of other translators (we have already translated other erotic books for Saga with different language combinations).

The project is to start right away in the beginning of September so we need to build a team of translators as soon as possible.

If you feel like participating, you should know that the project requires you to be able to work with us during September-December 2019. The monthly amount of words for you to translate will be about 25.000 words (200.000 words a month in total for a group of 8 translators from Norwegian to English). You will receive your part of translation in the beginning of each month and translate it for about 2 weeks, but you will also be sampling/evaluating and communicating with the rest of the team (there will be a Slack channel for the translators and the project manager). The nice part of the project is, once again, that it is an easy and fun content to translate and that it will provide you with work for the rest of this year.

We would be really happy to collaborate with you on this project. If you feel like participating, we would need to assess your skills for this type of content and will ask you to translate an abstract of about 450 words.

You may also let your colleagues know about this project if you know some potential candidates (we will translate from Norwegian to Danish, Swedish, English and Finnish).

I am looking forward to receiving your reply and hope to work with you on this project!
