Translate a 200,000 word (650 page) science fiction novel from French into English. Looking for a native English speaker, fully bilingual in French. Past experience, both writing and translating, is required. SYNOPSIS: The protagonist is a 21 year-old girl living in a dystopian future where men have been exterminated and enslaved. She comes to the realization that men are being used as cattle, and that her society is a repressive totalitarian state. She rebels against this, and fights the system. Think similar tones to "The Hunger Games" but more mature and dark. REQUIREMENTS: - A native English speaker, with an excellent command of the French language. The French author at times uses extremely eloquent and descriptive language, so you must be fully bilingual. - A proven translator with past experience, both writing and translating, who might develop a passion for the work itself, in order to create a true-to-spirit translation. “True to spirit” is the important qualifier, as the translator will need to use some creative license to re-create the same poetry and flow as present in the original French. - A progressive and open-minded translator as the material can be very edgy: this science fiction novel gets very dark sometimes, and has sexual content. - Someone who feels confortable with technology and is sensitive to art/architecture, as the book includes a lot of science fiction details, and topical descriptions. - Somebody with a creative mind, as the book contains many plays on words, acronyms, and location names that cannot be directly translated. - The ability to speak in the voice of a 21 year old female character, discovering her identity, internal feminine struggles, reactions to society, etc. IN A NUTSHELL: There are numerous difficulties with this work: length, technicality, vocabulary, creativity, poetry, and more. We are looking for somebody who could develop a passion and excitement for the whole work (this is the first in a trilogy, so there could be future work as well). Direct and frequent/semi-frequent contact with the author is expected to maintain the continuity of a faithful translation. The author is already working with a French publisher, but he has suggested translating into American English as science fiction is not en vogue in France right now. IF INTERESTED: Please respond with cost and time estimate A short list of applicants will be selected, and provided a cover letter and excerpts to be translated for a small fee. After reviewing the translations and skyping the applicants, one will be selected for the full translation.
