Start with practice in translating small essays.  If you are confident enough, translate one chapter ...

I cn see that English is your second and last language but I am curious: have you ever been commissioned to translate any text? I rather think not. So what makes you believe you know anything relevant to this topic?

Do you know that translators must respect intellectual property rights? They ca be sued if they translate and the original author is not happy with the result of their translation!

I can see English is your borrowed language still.  Have you been been sitting in any IELTS or TEFOL test seneca?  I did.  Seems to me that your reading comprehensions are quite untolerable?  Did you read my advice to her thoroughly?! - Practice of translating small essays to start with!  Also don't tell me anything about intellectual property rights seneca - how about your advocating of your 'talented' photogragher's illegally-taken pics. in internet bar?

I do not borrow languages, Dee:rie - because unlike you I do not wipe my bum with a piece of a foreign tongue.

Hadn't noticed 'stalker' but what you said made sense

Seneca, everybody here knows how 'tough' your second tongue is, you don't have to exaggerate once again
