We run [login to view URL] website for over 20 years. The website provides free online units conversion service. Currently the website is available in English, Spanish and Russian. We plan to add Portuguese.
We're looking for an experienced translator to add Portuguese translation to the site interface, names of measurement units and site articles. The data to be translated consists of three parts:
1. The biggest part is units and measures names along with some descriptions. It contains 14,833 words of text.
2. The second part is a set of words and phrases used in the website interface. It only has 815 words.
3. The third part is a set of articles and site pages (8,919 words total).
For the parts 1 and 2 we provide excel files that contain initial English terms and phrases as well as their existing translation to Spanish and Russian. However, Spanish and Russian translation are only provided for a reference. We require Portuguese translation to be done from English, as it was an original language. The Portuguese translation should be added to an additional column in the existing spreadsheets.
The third part is provided as a Microsoft Word (or Open Office) document with English texts only. We will require Portuguese translation of these texts in the same format.
Some text fields in the parts 1 and 2 contain technical markup, e.g. variable substitution, conditional statements. The markup should be left as is.
When applicable it is better to avoid local specifics of European vs. Brazilian Portuguese. If it is not possible to avoid, Brazilian Portuguese is preferred.
This project requires experience with:
- Experience with English-to-Portuguese technical translation work
- Experience of program interface or website translating, when you have to deal with chunks of words instead of a "smooth" text
In your proposal, please share a brief summary of your experience, including examples of relevant translation work.
The budget for the project is discussable. Please feel free to suggest yours.

I had some translation opportunities while living in Japan! And I work teaching Portuguese to Americans and Japanese to Brazilians about one year.
