On my copy; I am hoping to receive when published; I will not be able to read it anyway; however if I do a Google translate on a word; what are the chances I will get the right English translation? By the way I never use semi-colons.

NOT a clue.. it really depends on the word haha.

you might want to try OCR or something and see what that good translator that we found not too long ago.. what was the name, can make sense out of it.


As far as your copy, we will sort it out via PM and paypal, pretty sure that will work :)

Deepl!

I was thinking beebl or something hahaha. That is the one indeed. I found its translations quite the quality.

Yes, that is it. Used Deepl for a while last year - in fact translating Dutch to English - but I could not register as a paying user. Their administration was very limited in
the countries they would accept. New Zealand, a couple of smallish islands in the South Pacific, was outside their span of interest.

Just have to go squeeeeeee!

The cover has now been finalized (after a number of design pointers from yours truly ;) ) and tomorrow morning they are going to request the first printed version of the book for yours truly.

Woopwoop!!

Exciting! What is the title (with English translation please)?
Come to think of it I am writer too. I have written a few patents. Well before the lawyers got hold of them. I guess that is not real writing after all.

Woopwoop, the first copy has been printed, it has been approved by them and it is now on its way to me.


Of course if I find something that is not right I will let them know about it. I am vocal like that. Basically made them turn the whole back design around because it wasn't good enough in my eyes. :laugh: They still keep complimenting me, so I think I am not TOO bad hahaha.


Almost threw the whole dealie in the bin actually.. I got a case of terrible cold feet this past Tuesday, started doubting everything, thank goodness was smart enough to mail them with my thoughts and fears. Took a half hour phone call from them to make me see reason that the book IS good enough, and that I DID put enough effort in.


I am kind of a bit too much a perfectionist with these things. ;) *sigh*

You are good at being vocal? LOL I did not know that. I am glad you persevered and did not back out. Expecting your book to eventually be translated into 20 languages,
