    Hi all,

    I am working with one of the biggest Chinese online publishers to introduce one of their most successful fantasy books to the American readers. It has over 100 millions downloads in China. I have translated 20 chapters, but I think the work needs substantial polish. About 3-5 chapters/day (3 pages/chapter) need to be edited on average, it is flexible.

    Please contact me if you are interested.

    Thank you.

    Jay

    65 people viewed my post, but none replied. I wonder if anyone could help? Or could anyone recommend somewhere else to go for such help?

    The first part of the book should be about 500 pages. I guarantee you will like it. 100 million download should mean something...

    There are some professional SF editors over at Science Fiction Chronicles Forums. I think that Theresa Edgerton, in addition to being a writer, is an editor. Might want to try there.
