    We know there are a few companies out there that can do this but we aren't at that stage yet, just want some listings translated basically for us to test and see how we go and if we think Germany is a market for us

    So does anyone have any experience in how to find someone a student maybe who can do listing translations ... or someone they have used who they can recommend for English to German translation ??

    Any help - advice or tips for what to look for in a translator would be appriciated

    Cheers

    Danny

    Well done, what I did when I needed it was when we sold a item to a foreign customer, I asked them if they wanted it for free if they could translate our page down to basics, at the time we only had a limited amount of pages that needed doing and it worked well for us, handy if you sell on ebay and you can get a friendship from it too.

    That is what we need to do - we dont want to be spending a lot if the German marketplace is no good for our goods - however if it works we will happily spend the money

    Mister B how did you end up finding a student - or someone reputable - that is what we are struggling with ?

    My partner is Austrian (therefore speaks German as her native language) and fluent in English (she speaks it better than I does lol) and she does English to German translations on the side.

    If you are interested drop me a message with an example of what you would need translating and Ill let you know if she can do it and what the fee would be.
