I want my five year old daughter to write a letter to our Compassion child, but it is a little hard to read. What would make it easier for the translator? I'm not sure my daughter left enough room for the translation, but I think it is important for our compassion child to see this letter.

Scan in your daughter's letter and then send a translation for the translators to work from? You could write it out yourself as the letter. Then send her copy as the "associated picture page"  I have a 9 year old and a 5 year old. When my 9 year old writes a letter, we type it into the online letter page and I help him make sure he has the bases covered. My 5 year old is not to the point of writing a letter yet, so she colors pictures for her 5 year old correspondent and I write the letter, then attach the colored picture plus a uncolored copy so the recipient can color the same picture, if they want.

Hi Sara! I think that Sarah has wonderful ideas. I would encourage you make sure it legible anyway you feel comfortable. Like Sarah said, you could send your daughters letter as an attachment to your translation of her letter, or just below her letter, you can rewrite it legibly for the translator. I would also suggest that you explain why both pages are identical, as in maybe place a note on it and circle it in another color? Just a suggestion! :)
