Hi,

I have a document badly translated from original Bengali into English. I would like to have this text edited into a well written fluent English text. There are some Sanskrit words in the document, which don’t need translation. Some parts are very badly translated and some are better, so the text isn’t fluent. The document should seem one text and give the impression that it is original..

I think it is also important to understand the content of the document in order to edit it properly. It is an ancient text passed on by Yogi’s and describes the secret processes of meditation (sadhana), so we really want the document to be well written.

I send this text bellow as a sample of what the text looks like. Could you edit the text for me, so I can get an idea of how you would edit it.

Important is that it isn’t changed too much, since it should also stay a little original. In the same time it should be fluent and english which makes sense. Hope you understand. If you have any questions I am willing to help.

Text..
“Nobody is satisfied with whatever he gains in life. Whatever one gets becomes valueless or its value becomes zero. After gaining one thing he aspires for another, yet another and yet another. And every gain is shelved to make ground in the mind for a new ones. Really one wants everything; the whole; not a fraction. As every gain is a fraction, it is rejected for a new one. The desire is for the endless, not cut by time; something above time and space. But what he gets is the fraction of space, related with time and hence it is limited.”


The text is about 5000 words. Whats your offer?
