Project Main Details

English to Spanish translation and reading 
I have a 4400 word text in English, that I need
- translated to Spanish
- read in English
- read in Spanish

The main character/narrator is a 9-year-old girl and I am looking for a believable child's voice. There are other characters, in the story, who are quoted. For example: Mom told me, "Young lady...."

So it would be benefiicial to have the reader able to sound like both a young girl and an adult woman, BUT.... again, the narrator being a girl is the most important factor in selecting a reader.

I would like one person to handle reading this in Spanish AND in English and prefer that they do the translation as well. This is not technical material. The reading level is approximately 5th grade. There are a few references to terms such as 'evergreens' and 'deciduous' trees, but these are brief and about as 'technical' as it gets.

The budget $1000 - $2500 is for all of the work, translation, reading 4400 words in English, reading 4400 words (assuming the length is similar once it is translated) in Spanish.

Thanks and good luck.

Script Details

Please read the script in English. Translating and reading in Spanish, would be helpful as well. If you have an existing demo of a young girl's voice, you may submit that instead. 
Cynthia Lyden brought in her science poster today. It’s not even due until tomorrow, and she brought it in today. She is so annoying.

I pray that Mrs. Duncan and Mr. Garcia don't pick Cynthia's poster to put in the school lobby. Mrs. Duncan said she would hang all the third graders’ science posters in the hall. Mr. Garcia, the principal, is going to pick one from each class to put in the lobby. That way, our parents can see them at the next open house.

I haven't even started my science poster. No big deal, though. I’m not worried about getting a late start. My poster will be better than Cynthia's. Lots better.
