We are beginning a large publication endeavor in which we will publish 17 books in English that until now only exist in Italian. All are written by the same author in the same literary style of the 19th Century in Italy.
Please only bid if you are able to understand the subtleties of 19th Century Italian. Please do not bid if you plan only to render machine translation. We could do machine quality translations ourselves.
Most importantly, note that this is the introductory book to a very large translation project. If you deliver high quality translation for a reasonable price in a reasonable time with this first book, we will continue to use you for the entire 17 book series!
Here are details of this first book:
Word count: 170,091
Characters (no spaces): 912,304
Characters with spaces: 1,083,425
I am uploading a sample page, and test doc of 850 words. Please bid the entire 442 page book. We will release milestone payments in regular increments upon receiving completed section translations.
