Discussions about how to find those things that are not immediately obvious

Forum rules
1) Please search before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one.

3) Please post separately for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator (right now, that's me, Dragonbones) asking for help. Happy posting!

Someone asked me for a recommendation per the topic title, and I realized that I don't know who here is still doing this kind of service. Native English speakers residing in Taiwan only, please. Please post your handle, name and contact info here if you do this service and make the info public; or please msg me privately with your real name and contact info if you would like me to forward it to the interested professor but don't want to post it publicly. Thanks!

I'd ask on, um, the other place. There are at least two people there who (I think) do this for a living, or are at least proficient enough to do a one-off.

Thanks; I tried to do a thread title search there so as to find an existing thread, but couldn't figure out how to do it on the new software there, and gave up (having an anklebiter trying to scale me didn't help).

I have to admit, I think doing the translation would be easier than trying to navigate that new set up. If you can't find someone, and if it's not too much I don't mind doing it as a favour.

Much obliged, Kal El, but it's not for me; it's surveys for a professor, and I was just doing a favor by casting the net around for a translator someone here might vouch for.
