We are looking for a native Spanish speaker with experience translating fiction to translate a dark romance novel from English into Spanish. The novel is ~72k words. Additionally, the chosen candidate would help us with some minor marketing-related tasks in Spanish, such as setting up a book description, the author website, and drafting emails to Spanish book-reviewing blogs.

As part of the application, please be prepared to provide a sample of your skills by translating an excerpt of the novel for us (3 scenes totaling approx. 1300 words). These samples will then be used to select the finalist.

Please mention if any of these apply to you:
1) You have translated a work of fiction and can provide information about it
2) You read romance in English or Spanish. You read fantasy novels in either of the languages.
3) Spanish is your native language (you were born in Spain) and you have full mastery of English.

Content warning: This novel is a DARK ROMANCE (like Fifty Shades, only darker) with all that it implies, so please consider that before applying.
