Hi there, I have written 13 books on the subject of learning to play the guitar. There is some fairly guitar specific language to be translated but the majority is the explanation of musical concepts and how to apply them to the guitar.

I am initially looking to employ a translator to translate my first book from English to German. It is 7530 words. There are diagrams but these do not need to be translated.

Please respond with the words I Am Human and please translate the following 200 words from English to German:

In chapter one, we looked at how we can use Major Chord Shapes to divide up the neck in the key of A Major. We will be coming back to those shapes in chapter 12 when we look at the Major Pentatonic scale.

For now, we are going to focus on the Minor Pentatonic scale as you may already have a grasp of one or two of the common shapes on the neck.

We will begin by learning your visual cues: the chord shapes that we will learn to associate with each scale shape. Remember, we section off the neck with chord shapes, and then mentally ‘hang’ each scale shape from each chord.

As we are learning the minor Pentatonic scale, we will learn 5 minor 7 chord shapes to divide up the neck. Here are your 5 shapes, all in the key of A minor:
* Shape 5 is actually an Am11 chord but this helps to clarify the differences between shape 1 and shape 5.

You will notice also that we have stopped calling these chords C shape, A shape etc. Now they are just named shape 1, shape 2 and so forth.
Exercise 1.

If this project is successful, I have plans to translate a further 12 books into German, and any future releases that I publish. I nmormally produce about six books a year, so this could turn into a long term, lucrative project for the person with the right skills. Most books are in the region of 12,000 to 15,000 words.
