I need a creative writer to write a 7500 words contemporary romance / erotic novel. I'm looking for a good short story with interesting plot line which will keep the reader engaged to the end.

I need someone that could do a perfect translation of a regular Ebook, around 75 pages long, from an American English to Brazilian Portuguese. It's not very technical neither does it have any difficult terms, just plain English with maybe a few coined phrases. It can be in the form of a regular Ebook (PDF or Word document), but it can be a PowerPoint presention with equivalent length as well. Since I have some additional material that would require similar translation, this can be the beginning of an on-going partnership. I will prefer native Brazilians that speak English fluently than the other way around. If you're interested and you think you're able to do a great job, please reply with some samples of similar past translations you've done. Also, please start your message with the word "purple" so I know you've read it all.

**Budget below is just a simple placeholder; please quote the appropriate project cost for this work. Thanks.**** Hello, I'm looking for a smart, accurate, efficient translator who can take a word document worth of text (from a website that's about to go live) and translate it into beautiful-sounding Spanish. Note that this is for a health nonprofit, so there is some medical language of typical procedures (i.e. words like tooth extraction, breast cancer screening, lab work, pediatric dentistry, etc.), though it's probably only about 5% technical terminology like that vs. general language. You'll most likely be working with about 7,000 words of text. Please give me your quote for completing this job, and how quickly you can do it. Thank you! Irena NOTE: I am putting $100 in the budget as a simple place holder, as it's making me put a number in there --- it is up to you to quote me the actual price of your services. Thanks!
