Fun Project - Fiction Novel Translation

Job Description

I am a US-based author of mystery and thriller novels, and I am looking to have one translated from English into German. It would be great to have someone who is an avid reader and can capture the nuances and rhythm of fiction. It's a fast-paced thriller of approximately 55,000 words and most would say that it's an easy read (meaning NOT overly complicated with lots of big words. It's not fancy. Think James Patterson.) Some finesse will be required as there are scenes of texting in abbreviated English, and scenes with "game clues" that might not be simply translated A-->B if that makes sense.

No machine translations, obviously. It would help if you've translated fiction before. Also, if we work well together and you deliver projects on time with quality work, I have a large backlist that could lead to plenty of work in the future. If you have examples of work you have translated in the past and they're available on Amazon.de, I would love to take a look.

Thanks for your time!
