I am looking for a freelancer who is bilingual in English and German and who can monitor German-language news media for certain types of business-related news stories. The following link on Mondo Times provide some good lists of such news sources to help the freelancer get started:

Each day, the freelancer will keep track of his/her findings in a Google Docs spreadsheet that will include:
- Date of publication
- Title of the news story
- Name of the news source
- Name of the journalist
- Journalist's email
- A brief summary of the news story in English
If you think you can do this job, place a bid for 1 month of work and I will send you a private message with exact details about the types of news stories I am looking for and what I want to accomplish with the information that you will be compiling.
After I explain the instructions, I will ask all bidders who are still interested in this project to answer a few short questions to demonstrate their comprehension of the task before I award the project. Some previous job candidates that I've talked to have had difficulty understanding my instructions, so hopefully this process will help clear up any confusion. If you have any questions at all, don't be afraid to ask before you accept the job!
If you are successful with this project, you will also be invited to work on a fun public relations job in the near future where you will utilize the information that you collected here. I will also talk more about this in my private message.
