UMO would like to request bids for a translation/writing project: translate/rewrite existing medical product descriptions to provide unique content, and writing new unique descriptions for new products. To start, there are 10 product descriptions for translation/rewrite.
Descriptions need to be translated from **English to Dutch**; you should be a **native Dutch speaker/writer**.
This is an on-going project, or ends when all existing descriptions have been translated, whichever is the sooner.
Target cost is US$5 per description; the first 4 descriptions have been attached. Language proficiency must be Native Dutch and the quality must equal that found in *The National Geographic Magazine* (Netherlands edition).
