We need a translation from either: - German to French - English to French for a software product. You can choose the source language, but the target language is French. Currently the word count is like: ~1600 words in the Markdown format. ~550 words in a single HTML file ~60 words in a .yml file Markdown format and YML is very simple. You can easily follow the example. HTML is also simple if you know what HTML is. I expect a translator to not translate word by word, but to preserve the meaning and make it sound "natural". The tone of the translation should be kept (informative and professional). Please note the following: - There will be a follow-up job at a later point of time. It would be great if the successful candidate would try to be available for this one too. - Native speakers of french a preferred - Please make sure you can deliver at least one week after we have agreed - Please submit a fixed price for the offer. If you feel afterwards my description of t...

I am looking for **native English** writers for a newly created site. The site is focused on professional careers, advice on job interviews, job search, career planning and related issues for job seekers. Possibly this can be a longer term contract as the site will grow over time. If the quality is OK I'll send 4-5 articles ideas for you that I'd like to get written. Deadline for the articles is usually 4 days. Content length: 800 - 1000 words Per article price: $10 I'll send ideas in batches of 5. Primarily this is a ghostwriting job, either someone else's persona will be used or no persona will be used. If the content quality is there though and you'd like to be featured it can be published under your name. This is especially preferred in case you have some sort of presence in HR (e.g. write to other sites too, or you want to use these articles to highlight them on your resume or other web profiles). ## Required skills / deliverables during the project - As it's mentioned in the ...

I have an eBook that I've self-published. It's written using Apple Pages and is approximately 60 pages long. I'm moving to a new publishing system that only supports Markdown formatting, so I need help converting the content from the existing Pages document to separate Markdown formatted files. This book is technical in nature. Most of the work will be copy / paste, but there are also images and terminal output that will need to be handled carefully. The eBook can be found here:   [obscured]   Let me know if you have further questions.

The project: 70-90 web pages for an open-source online programming reference manual for students. The manual is for Pencil Code, an elegant new educational programming website for students which is free to all to use. The text must be clear, succinct, and accessible to students in grades 6+. Although there is very little text on each page, it is important that each page include two or more running code samples, with annotations on the relevant parts of the code and the output. We will provide tools for creating and annotating those samples. This manual will be well-used! The reference manual will cover basics of using the Pencil Code turtle graphics library, as well as describe the functionality of specific syntax in Javascript, Coffeescript, and jQuery. A draft table of contents of the project (and a few pages) can be found at   [obscured]  / - as you can see, each page of the reference manual will have a few sentences of text explaining a single command together with t...

Here's an easy job for someone who knows what they're doing. I am looking for an experienced editor/copywriter to write long copy that sounds personal. I will take what you write & mail it as a letter to someone I know in order to hopefully convince her to give me a job. Very much like a cover letter. Does this mean you have to think hard of WHAT to say? No, I've done all the hard work of creating an outline & planning what to say including major points & arguments. What I need from you is to listen to what I am trying to say, edit & refine my message & finally put it into words so it is coherent & flows smoothly. i.e. I need help in expression. I would've done this all myself except, you know how you can write stuff for others fairly easily but when it comes to writing for your own projects, it's much harder? Well, that's me. I've been planning this letter but when it came time to write, I just froze. Two months passed & I have little to show for it. Th...

We run a blog and podcast, and we need transcripts for all new episodes and videos, and the ones we've made. We have 57 podcasts, all of which are between 20-60 minutes in length. We also have several videos, and will be producing more soon. We need you to transcribe these videos and podcasts, and put the transcripts in Markdown files. If you're not familiar with Markdown, it's extremely simple and I can show you the basics. You need to have an excellent understanding of English, and be able to use proper grammar, spelling, punctuation, and everything else to make these look professional. You'll also need to indicate who is talking in the transcript. Our website is about health and fitness -- EvidenceMag.com. If you're interested in those topics, that's a bonus, but not essential. (We'd prefer you get to work on something you're interested in). If you have any questions about the job, let me know.

I have a transcription of a scanned story of 14 pages, some 6,000 words. I'm looking for someone to post-edit the transcription against the scanned original for *exact faithfulness to the original only*. All aspects of the original should be maintained, including punctuation, italicization, paragraph breaks (but not line breaks); even misspellings should be accurately reflected. The transcription is quite poor, with many OCR errors. The task requires extreme attention to detail. I have attached the scanned original (PDF) and the current transcription to give a sense of the material. The first two paragraphs of the transcription have already been corrected, in order to indicate what is desired. Note that this is not a traditional copyediting job, as no corrections or improvements to the text are wanted. Rather, the goal is to get as accurate and faithful a transcription as possible. The transcription is in Markdown format, a simple textual format that allows markup for, e.g., headings...
