I am looking for a German Copywriter who has excellent command over the Language. The job requires the copywriter to grasp the brand story written in English and produce the same story in German without loosing the essence. Translating the same content into German does not seem to work out as the core of the story vanishes. Hence it's not a pure copy writing job but understanding the story in the original copy written in English and produce the same story into German while keeping the story culturally relevant and avoiding errors which occur in normal course of translation from one language to another. Please refer to the attached brand story that I want to get converted into German and reply with the expected time needed.
