Dear brothers & sisters in Messiah Yeshua:

 
I have discovered in all this time that there are translators with little experience who are charging as much as $ 25,00 per translated page in standard space and a half in Word document. I have been charging only $ 16,00 though as you might know Spanish is always LONGER so if you had a book with 260 pages for example in Spanish it could turn out to have 275 more or less so it would be $ 4,400 and normally the procedure is to pay half in advance and the rest on completion. I am providing you this information because many people do not know what the normal price for translation is, so often they are paying too much and having the work done by translators who NOT always have the necessary experience and therefore they are throwing away their money.

 
Can you imagine your books, novels and articles reaching practically ALL the SPANISH speakers? Wouldn�t that be wonderful?

 
This information is about my over 45 years experience as a Sephardi, Messianic freelance translator, interpreter, transcriptionist and author. I am ALWAYS interested in translating books, novels and articles into SPANISH for anyone interested and at the same time look for a publisher for my 3rd novel, as I explain below and will of course provide further information if you so desire. I look forward to your kind reply. The last book I translated into Spanish, my 119th one was: �Noah, Founder of Civilizations� (Please  see list of books further down). 

 
I wish to ad and make very clear that translating is something I do with love, passion and desiring to make you fully aware of the importance of your books and other materials becoming available in SPANISH too, BUT I can�t WORK FOR FREE. Off lately a few people have expected me to work, spending days, weeks and at times months translating books ONLY for THEIR BENEFIT not willing to pay for my work!! The Torah/Bible clearly states that �THE LABORER IS WORTHY OF HIS WAGES� so if you wish to have your books, novels or articles translated FOR FREE please DO NOT WRITE TO ME, thank you. 

 
I have translated to date a total of 119 books and 129 subjects for an encyclopedia in Madrid, SPAIN where I am from (please see lists below), as well as having done simultaneous translating for Campus Crusade for Christ conferences in Austria, France and Spain, editing, proofreading, dubbing of movies for �Estudios Abaira� and �Estudios Exa� in Madrid, transcribing of several hundred tapes for a Messianic ministry and have 2 novels published, one in Spanish and the second in English as well as having a third in English I would like to see published in a near future. Your books could become a blessing for those who do NOT read or understand the English language.        

 
We have gone to several Messianic congregations since we discovered our Jewishness 13 years ago, like BeitHallel in Tacoma, Wa. And others, the last one we went to was BatZion Messianic congregation in the Woodlands, Texas http://battzion.org/ for over two years and a half. I consider translating Torah related books and articles my personal and small, but at the same time important ministry as we too live in obedience to Torah and we are an Israel loving and supporting family, fully convinced that they are GOD�S CHOSEN PEOPLE.

 
I hope you will consider IMPORTANT making your wonderful books, articles, Web pages and other information available in SPANISH too! Wouldn't being able to reach the ever growing number of SPANISH speakers all over the world be a fantastic idea? Please kindly see my information and if you have any questions I will be pleased to answer them.

 
A WORD OF WARNING:
I have been shocked to see people who are so mistaken they think that some �machine� on Internet can translate into SPANISH or other languages and do it AUTOMATICALLY. That would be like going to a doctor with grave symptoms and hoping that just by looking at the doctor�s face you will AUTOMATICALLY BE HEALED!! (I send this because it is sad and tragic to see "so called translations" that are nothing but a murdering of the SPANISH language and are so MISERABLY TRANSLATED that they are really NOT AN ACCURATE TRANSLATION, but a poor and inadequate way of trying to save some money).

 
Not only was I brought up with the Bible, but my father Dr. Jos� Flores Espinosa (two very Jewish surnames) who was the General Secretary of the Bible Society in Madrid, SPAIN, but he was a Bible teacher, preacher, gave conferences and spoke 8 languages and I worked 9 of those years with him.

 
As a family we live in obedience to Torah and Messiah Yeshua, keeping the Sabbath, NOT the Sunday, celebrating the Feasts decreed by our Abba ve shamaim, eating kosher, loving and supporting our "am Yisrael."  I am also a freelance translator, interpreter, transcriptionist and author with over 45 years experience and will include the information about my experience below. Among them I translated a few years ago in: (www.torahresource.com) and also a writer, have one novel published in Spanish and another one in English as you will see below and would like to see my third novel published too.

 
I consider translation my personal ministry as well as my passion and in these very critical economical times I am convinced it is more important than ever to reach out to the ever increasing number of Spanish speakers.

 
As I am sure you know the U.S. Census Bureau has projected there will be 102.6 million Hispanics living in the United States in 2050.  Throughout the United States, the Hispanic buying power is already near $1 TRILLION per year - the largest of any minority group and also it is a well known fact that in Spanish you need at least 20% more words than you use in English to say the same thing," says Schon, whose regular reviews in Booklist, the magazine of the American Library Association, can make or break a translated book's reputation. This is part of what literary experts define as the awakening of a new era in the book industry for U.S. Hispanics.

 
If the Spanish-language market is hot, the Spanish-language religion market is boiling over. For several years most Spanish religion/spirituality houses have reported sales growth rates of 25% or higher, a sure sign the Latino cultural boom rumbling through music, television and film is also making itself felt in this segment of publishing. And one of the biggest reasons for that, these publishers say, is the recent awakening of retailers--from chain superstores to small religion independents--to the needs of the Spanish-reading consumer. But while retailers are more open to Spanish-language religion books, most publishers say booksellers still have further to go in understanding the deeper cultural and spiritual values of the Spanish-reading consumer.

 
Fueled by the rising tide of Latin American immigrants, the U.S. publishing industry has found a booming market in Spanish-language books, especially over the past two years: Amazon.com sells thousands of Spanish titles at its Web site; the nation's biggest bookseller, Barnes & Noble, hired a full-time Spanish-language book buyer; and the trade journal Publishers Weekly launched the publication Cr�ticas to track the burgeoning industry. Sales of Spanish-language books in the United States add up to more than $350 million a year, according to consultants Kiser & Associates.

 
Translation became one of my passions when I was preparing my "Proficiency in English" from Cambridge University, which included English Language, literature RICHARD II of Shakespeare and translation. I was 16 when I translated my first book. These are very critical economical times and reading can often become a very welcome pastime. My daughter and I have always been passionate readers and in my parent's home in Madrid we had a library that covered 3 walls from the floor to the ceiling in several languages. (Please see next email with a couple of samples of translation). 

I translated many of these articles:

http://www.raystedman.org/spanish/index.html

http://www.torahresource.com

I also have experience translating journalistic, psychology and psychiatry subjects and have read many books on these fascinating subjects in English, Spanish and French and I have also translated many articles on the subject of EDUCATION in the USA.

 
I have translated a total of ONE HUNDRED & NINETEEN books (including one by brother Charles Colson), one from French and the rest from English into Spanish, 129 articles for an encyclopedia in Madrid, SPAIN where I am from (please see lists below) done simultaneous translating in conferences in Austria, France and Spain, editing, proofreading, dubbing, transcribed 400 tapes. I also have a novel published in Spanish "Amanecer entre sombras" (sunrise among shadows) and my second novel "ABBA, LET ME SERVE YOU" was published by PUBLISH AMERICA.
Abba, Let Me Serve You
Rhode Flores Barcel�

 
Each one of the characters in this short story is part of my imagination, but at the same time the reality of life�s experiences; those things that touch us and make us what we become inevitably and in a very real way make up the main argument that is reflected in each of the pages not only of this book, but most importantly of our lives. Life grows, changes and colors the events that take place, touching the lives of others and molding the thoughts of the different characters because deep inside those of us who base our lives on the EMET, truth in Hebrew, of the Torah or Word of God and Messiah Yeshua, become the open book in which we make it possible for Messiah to write and to fashion our lives.

 
I previously translated many Web pages and other materials I have not included for the sake of space. (I was educated in the "British Institute School" in Madrid till the age of 15 and then got my "Proficiency in English" (English language, literature including Richard II of Shakespeare and translation) from Cambridge University.

 
Because Spanish speakers in the United States come from many countries, as you might know it is wiser to use experienced, professional translators who know universal Spanish, which is what I offer because mine is Castilian SPANISH from Madrid, SPAIN; avoid regional or national idioms except when the style or dialog call for them.

 
As you might know this is one of the fastest growing markets in the United States and SPANISH is here to stay!!! Call me today to learn how easy and necessary are our services to millions of Spanish speaking people not only in Spain, South and Central America and other countries like Israel where Spanish is spoken extensively, but here in the USA where it is becoming an indispensable language. I have often translated 700 pages in one month, 2 books in 6 weeks or 17.000 words in 24 hours!!

 
I also need to find a publisher for my 3rd novel �Marina, my own personal Jericho� (with three files) and would welcome any information. Thank you in advance.
