translating into German is easy. Mostly you just replace any C with a K (America -> Amerika, Canada -> Kanada), and try to look like a really strict school teacher while doing that.

150 words per hour is not a lot.

I just turned down an offer to edit a non-friction short story book.

Aw man! that job would have been like butter. Though the client sounds a
little too slick. You might still be able to slide in. I'm sure you won't
get any resistance from Upwork. It should be smooth as silk. Don't let it
slip through your fingers. I can never gain any traction with that kind of
client. And I would bend over backwards for a non-friction job...not
forward though...
