For our webshop we're looking for an experienced writer who's familiar with VINYL RECORDS. We sell record sleeves, cleaning products and other accessories. If you have no affinity with vinyl, this is not a job for you. This first job would be for 11 short descriptions of approximately 500 words in total. If this works for both parties, we might have more jobs for you in the future. The texts have been translated from Dutch to English (UK), but need to be finetuned. It is very important that jargon terms are correctly written. Therefore we look for a writer who is familiar with this type of products. The texts need to be checked on spelling mistakes and incorrect words. Writer profile: - Familiar with vinyl - Native English speaker (UK or USA only!) - Available for communication through Skype Thanks in advance for your applications. DG Shop

I am a Korean-American, and I am translating a 19th century American novel into Korea. I need someone to help me understand some of those old English expressions, vocabularies, and the context because English is not my mother tongue and those old English novels are sometimes hard for me to comprehend. What I need is someone who can help me about an hour or two each day over the Internet, preferably through some type of chatting. The work hours can be flexible depending on your schedule. I have three short stories by Gertrude Stein, and one full story published around 1800. Thank you.

I am also revamping the existing website with a new website and the text transfer by this new website company is having the same problem (they're not copy/pasting all text and when they rewrite it the punctuation, spelling and grammar seems to be suffering). My hope is to have someone review and help rework the SEO articles so that they don't reflect negatively on the company (and provide corrected copy for me to send to the SEO company to correct). And secondly, to have someone provide a list of the grammar/spelling/punctuation corrections that need to be made on the website, something that I can hand off to the website company and track whether or not they've made the cor...
