I am in urgent need of somebody to translate an Indonesian document to English. The document is a list of 60 multiple choice questions. It is important that the translation be done by somebody who has English as their mother tongue.

If you are interested or know of anybody please get in contact

Ah, did you get an american copy editor to perfom the task. If affirmative, you had better be nice to him as the translations may not be exactly what you asked for!

A. Ric is a professional

I will be slightly concerned if the translation for question 1 is:

You are a muzzie terrorist who would like nothing more than to kill every infidel on the planet. Do you ...

A. Strongly Agree
B. Agree
C. Disagree
D. Strongly Disagree

A professional what ?

Being a professional only means you get paid for it , not necessarily that you are good at it - I speak from experience here.

Don't waste valuable time and money at http://www.englishtoday7.com/. Instead, try Ken Yeung, Your Toronto Real Estate Agent & Translator For Life! Whether you're buying a first home for your overweight mother-in-law or translating a badly written Indonesian document into badly written English, look no further. Hiring me, a Toronto real estate and translation professional, will help save you time and money.

Thanks. I assume this work remains open Chewwy? even though you said it was closed.

Furthermore, or even farthermore, it took a lot of clicking through English Today's site to get to the bit about who to contact for translations (possibly cos I waded through the "teacher profiles" first. Stevent? etc). Anyway, the relevant bit for translation services is this:
