Try with DYS. They even have a press release service: http://www.dystranslations.com/3/Press.html

Cheep, professional and good.

I tried to find amateur translators in the past and I did. I spent a bit less, but it's stressful to handle and "educate" different people on how to actually translate your app/whatever. Plus a French guy I found on Touch Arcade translated my app description using Google Translate so that the word "player" (referred to iPod music) became "joueur" (player, like in sports) in French, for example.

The document wasn't usable and I was in a hurry. I had to use a firm to translate my urgent file and I paid like double for the extra fast service.

Consider this, if your application has some potential.
If you expect to sell 0 copies, then it's fine not to invest on this.

Depending on how much text your game contains, I would translate it (or part of it if it's too much ) for free (=> German). There also is at least one more user here who would maybe help you for free.

Lol, Google Translator is good if you want to have something to laugh at but translating sentences with Google Translator is... let's say... not good . For single words there are many other websites which are much better.

PM me if interested!
