Hello,
We are a small publisher looking for a proofreader to work with us on a regular basis. Most of the papers will be translations in English from other languages, executed by translators who are not native in English. These papers should be corrected and polished in order to reach a good level of native English. There will be projects of various kinds and topics, either technical or literary, short documents or books, our papers or third parties' papers. Proofreader's work should be done in MS Word's track-changes mode for most of the jobs, and occasionally in Front Page. This work assumes:

- Improving the non-idiomatic English used by translator.
- Rewording those portions that sound weird or non-colloquial for the native English speaking reader.
- Ensuring that the paper is error free, polished, and consistent, while maintaining the voice, style, and specialty terms of the piece, and ...
