Description

Experience Level: Intermediate
I need a French to English translation of a book of about 200 pages which is subtitled \"A psycho-analytic study of a Breton myth\". It is quite heavy going and is full of references to various French / Breton / Greek / Christian / Amerindian deities, myths and legends as well as psychological terms and is quite \"flowery\" in style.

Over and above the actual translation, I need to be sure that you will check out all the technical terms and ensure that any of the psychology / literary references are correct in English. When submitting your bid, please specify how you would go about ensuring the veracity of your work.

I need the translation to be completed by June 30th, so would consider using several translators, each doing a chunk. I would also like to give bidders a test in the form of a short paragraph to translate which will help me decide on the translators to be retained.

Many thanks.
