Looking for a translator of a Turkish text to English

 I am in possession of a memoir on life in modern Turkey, and I would like to translate the memoir into English for publication.  The memoir is 190 pages and it focuses on life in modern Turkey for a special ethnic group.  The translation will be in included in a book proposal for several university presses. Given the uniqueness of the author and memoir, I am waiting to secure the services of a translator under contract before discussing the text openly.
