Hello Mandarin speakers,
I am looking for readers who can read five samples of a children’s book in Mandarin and give me a brief feedback. This micro job requires a good sense of literature and language. If that is something for you, please continue reading:
I am an author and painter. I have written a fantasy children's book about painting and magic. The book won a few literary awards in the original English version. It is called "Magora - The Gallery of Wonders." Check it out on google if you are interested.
Now I have recently had some samples translated into Mandarin and need native speakers to give me feedback on the translations, so that I can pick the right translator to work with. Unfortunately, I don't speak Mandarin so I have to rely on other people's opinion.
What I would need from you after you have read the samples is the following:
1. A ranking: Please rank the translations from No 1 being the best to No. 5 being the worst.
2. Answer 6 questions for each sample. Your answer can be just one sentence but more is appreciated. Anything helps to evaluate the translations.
a. What did you like about the translation?
b. What didn't you like about this translation?
c. Is the translation written so that a child around the age of 11 would understand it or is it too complicated?
d. Is the translation grammatically and linguistically well written?
e. Does it sound like a naturally written Chinese text or does it sound translated?
f. Any other comments, issues, problems, or praise?
A PDF SAMPLE IS ATTACHED. ONCE I MAKE YOU AN OFFER I WILL SEND YOU THE FULL VERSIONS, EACH CONSISTING OF ABOUT 2500 CHARACTERS.
This is just a small project to find the right translator. But once I have picked a translator and start the translation, I will probably come back here to you to get more feedback.
If you have any questions, send me a message.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you,
Hi Marc, I am a native Chinese speaker and I love reading! I can help you with this but I couldn't find the attached sample? If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Thank you!
