I have many short stories of approx. 5000 words plus a short paragraph synopsis and 7 keywords for each that I need translated from English to German. Depending on each story you translate we will adjust payment if the story is over or under the 5000 word average. As an example if I have a 3,000 word story I would pay 60 percent of your normal rate for a 5k story and if I have an 10k word story I would pay you double your normal rate.
Please also give me an idea of your turnaround time on a 5k word story.
Do not bid one price and then alter that bid in your application or I will flag you for unprofessional conduct. This is a fixed bid contract and so your per word price is really not important to me. You must be comfortable translating very explicit erotica. The emphasis on this project is speed and not an exactness of wording. What I mean by that is that you are not translating some important historical text. As long as the ideas remain the same and the grammar is proper, exact translation is not all that important. I have over 100 stories and I am looking to have all of my popular titles translated. This will be ongoing work if you are interested.
Please make the first words of your application "I understand the bidding process" so that I know you read the whole posting.
I am attaching a short sample that you will need to translate to be considered. Please attach your translation of the sample to your application. Applications with out the sample translated will be deleted.
