Hi,

I just finished a book on Organizational Culture Change... Though my English is fluent, I'd like to have a native US English text professional check it... with a minimum of editing because we like to move quickly to publishing.

The assignment is: read the book and highlight phrases that are really bad English and suggest a better formulation. The style is casual and we'd like to keep it that way. It's as if I am talking to the reader.

We'd like our proofreader to have experience in the business field, with nonfiction management books.

And we need you to be as fast and cheap as possible :-)
I know, that's a lot. I don't have much budget either. So if I want to keep it under $ 500, how many words proofreading could you offer me? Could you read it all?

Afterwards, please tell us whether it was an inspiring and interesting read or not, next to flawless English (thanks to you).

Give it a try...? Would you like a preview of some chapters?
