Need native English speaker with good knowledge of German

31 Mar 2016 23:21

Anyone?

We need to translate the newspaper article at http://www.katholisches.info/2016/03/31 ... ranziskus/ to English. It's a long article, so let's make it a team effort - contribute one or more paragraphs at https://titanpad.com/wFpZzsfrL6 .

Yes, Titanpad allows several people to work simultaneously. Also, it indicates who wrote what by giving everyone a distinct colour. It does not require registration.

Hi Judith,

I've had a look at the paragraphs already translated in titan pad (which is new to me). So I just had a go and tried to correct a couple of things that were incorrect or too literal. It seems to have worked. I won't have time to do much until Sunday but if you want me to go through the translated text and proof-read it, I'll be happy to do so. And just in case the translation is not complete by Sunday, I'll gladly help.


Let me know

Liebe Grüße aus Hampshire von

Sabine

I figured this group was most likely to contain native English speakers with good knowledge of German. ;-)

Normally I'd try the Translate forum, but not a single native English speaker had written there.

The translation is finished now - I did some parts myself even though I'm not a native speaker - if someone could proofread, that would be much appreciated.

Hi Judith,

I could proof-read it tomorrow. I'll look tomorrow and if it still needs doing, I'll do it.

Sabine :)

Hi Judith,

I can't figure out how to reply on the pad but I've finished my revision.
It flows nicely now and says everything the original does without being too literal. Native English speakers will be able to read it now without being confused.

Ich wuensche dir ein schoenes Wochenende
