Job description:

Our publishing client is publishing a book consisting of maxims on virtue, management, well being and love etc in many languages. There are 1000+ sentences to be translated. (See examples below).

We need a sample of one sentence to be translated into as many as possible in your region. If you let me know the number of languages your agency or you could manage and names of the languages,we will create a sentence sample files for each language for you and you can get it translated. Every sample will just not more than 20 words.

We need the names of the translator (to be printed on the book) and cv and blank CV too.

Here go some examples of sentences:

The nature of deeds of people is the touchstone to decide how great or mean they are.

If the king fails in offering just governance, even the weapons won't bring him any success.

When you aim, aim for the highest. Even if you fail to achieve it, it isn't a failure at all.

If you master how to combine your arguments cogently and delivery your speech elegantly, the world will heed to your words at once.

If you are firm in what you thought, then you are sure to achieve exactly what you aimed for.

Those who brave the battlefields are many; Those who face the council of scholars fearlessly are rare.

Please take note of this:

For the sample tast, a translator needs to translate just one sentence into his/her native language. That's it. I think it won't take ten to fifteen minutes to complete this task.

Please don't translate the above examples. Once you confirm the list of languages you could work with, I will assign the text for each language. We need to create a presentation where one sentence is represented by one particular language.
