Hello all, first time poster but I have been following BitCoin for a few months now. I love the idea and the movement and want to get behind it any way I can. I am a professional freelance translator from America based out of Japan, and I am willing to offer my professional translation services in exchange for BitCoins. Feel free to message me or post here if you are interested.

Also, if any translators are interested in forming a network of BitCoin-based translators, perhaps we could lay the groundwork for a BitCoin-based translation company of sorts? Willing to hear any suggestions!

Thanks,
Brandon Kurohara

Considering that BitCoin is still in its infancy and I want to try and do something to stimulate the market, I am willing to offer my services at a 50% discount when compared to my standard rates in USD. Normally I would charge at the very least USD $0.08 per source Japanese character (for Japanese to English translation) or $0.16 per source English word (for English to Japanese translation) but to get things rolling lets set the rates at:

Japanese to English Translation
0.04 BTC per source Japanese character (5 BTC minimum)

English to Japanese Translation
0.08 BTC per source English word (5 BTC minimum)

For reference (for the majority of you who have probably not paid for professional translation services) these BTC rates are comparable to what you might find from a translation agency based out of China or India, so it's pretty cheap. Of course, we can negotiate depending on the terms and conditions of the job (steady work, large volume, content, etc.). If demand is high, rates may be increased to a more standard level.

If you want to get translators on board, you should probably try out translator-specific forums. I've found good listings at this Professional Translators directory. It's not a company, but a list of different firms and freelancers. Maybe you could submit a link as an employer?

I think it's a pretty good idea, too bad Japanese is not my language. In any case, a wide google search should give you a ton of forums and translator resources listings. It's one of the ways I look for jobs, you may find other guys interested in something like this too. You should clearly explain how the BitCoin system works though, most freelancers will probably be a bit suspicious regarding unusual forms of payment.
