Hello everyone, I am starting up a new web development company that mainly focuses on the recent web technologies. The company's first product will be a very very simple and classic WordPress blogger theme. English is my second language and I'm looking for someone who could proofread and edit (maybe add to) some of the copy that I wrote. The following copies have to be looked at. - WordPress Theme documentation - 850 words - Website (minimal landing page) - 60 words - Themeforest theme description - max 100words - Our first newsletter - 700 words Total word count: 1500-2000 The newsletter is about the top tools that should be used in a theme development process such as Sass, Gulp, Zurb Foundation etc... This email just introducing the tools to people who haven't heard about these. So I don't really go into detail, but ideally, I would like someone who knows a tiny bit about web development or willing to do the research. Don't get me wrong, I don't want you to be a programme...

I'm currently writing an e-book about Android Programming. My native language is French and I need help to review my text before I release it in electronic format. I plan to release new chapters to paying customers as they are ready. It's an ongoing project which will provide you work for several months but not full-time because I'm writing this book during my spare time (mainly while I'm commuting...) if I choose you to collaborate with me, I will provide you with a draft of the first chapters of my book for proof-reading and editing. I'm writing my book using markdown syntax (pandoc) and git as the source control management system. I can export the original text to various format (.epub, pdf, etc.). Just let me know what you need to get the job done. If you want to know more about this project, please, visit the launch page :   [obscured]   Please, don't post generic submission to this job or you will be automatically rejected. As a proof that you read the requirem...

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...

I have a transcription of a scanned book of some 66,000 words. I'm looking for someone to post-edit the transcription against the scanned original for *exact faithfulness to the original only*. The transcription is already quite accurate, so the task requires extreme attention to detail, since changes will be relatively rare (unlike, say, post-editing OCRed text). I have attached a sample of a couple of pages of the scanned original (PDF) and the current transcription (Markdown) to give a sense of the material. Job description: Note that this is not a traditional proofreading or 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 and italics. The transcription should conform to that format. Therefore, familiarity with Markdown is a plus. Total word count: 66000 Type of review: ...
