I need someone to translate a text from Chinese into English (topic: history, government policies, natural resources). When I do a word count (with Microsoft Office Word) in Chinese, it comes out at 18,000 characters, when I put it in google translate it becomes 11,000 words. I hope this gives you an idea of how long it is.
The text has been written by a Chinese, with expressions and "ways of saying" and proverbs that only Chinese people understand. I need someone who can understand which passages a Western reader would not understand, and explain these passages. So, you would not only need to translate word by word, but also explain the text (perhaps adding an explanation in bracket) or rephrasing.
If you bid I will send you a paragraph for you to translate, as a test.
