Notice: I'm an MA student in translation and linguistics. I've prepared a test of reading & translation (into arabic) and applied it to university students. I need someone to evaluate the students' translation products as a jury members. The translation products amount to 110 papers, which can be sent by regular mail.

If you're interested, please contact me as soon as possible.
