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.

I have a 200 page book that needs to be completely converted into the "markdown" language used for publishing a book Leanpub. Final deliverables need to exactly match with the formatting of a Leanpub book as outlined in their style guide and user manual:   [obscured]  /help/manual I will only work with freelancers who are familiar with the markdown formatting language:   [obscured]  /projects/markdown/syntax I will give priority to anyone who has already published a book through Leanpub and can show this as an example in their work portfolio. My 200 page book is fully completed, in Microsoft Word, and ready for conversion into the markdown format. I am looking forward to working with you on this project!

Convert 4th draft of book, 43 files (6.4MB) in Microsoft Word to Leanpub-flavored Markdown. The book has ~140K words, which if printed as a 6x9 book would be 300 pages. Leanpub does the conversion to markdown text, but it needs a fine eye and tweaking to look good in Leanpub. Particular care needs to be taken to have unique footnotes IDs (as per   [obscured]  /help/manual#leanpub-auto-footnotes), resulting in: [^ftn-01-1]: Target Map. 2012. "Most Popular Spectator Sports in the World". Target Map web site. [  [obscured]  /viewer.aspx?reportId=13258](  [obscured]  /viewer.aspx?reportId=13258). Leanpub asides icons need to be set: You can use any icon on   [obscured]  /Font-Awesome/icons/ with the following syntax: {icon=icon-name} G> Text An example of conversion of a chapter from the previous draft available.

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.

This project involves creating Markdown files, tagged according to our guidelines, from content supplied in Word format. We will supply tagging guidelines that include Markdown tags and our own custom tags. This is a basic tagging job and is much simpler than HTML. If you are comfortable with tagging, can learn new tags quickly, and work efficiently and accurately, we have hundreds of pages for you to tag, and they should go very quickly once you have learned the basic set of tags. ** Please do not offer to automate the process or modify it in any way. This is quick but manual work, and we need real eyes on the content, not an automated script - this introduces too many errors. ** We have approximately 1600 pages of work, dispersed among 13 Word documents ranging from 45 to 290 pages in length. (Job may be awarded to multiple applicants.) We will pay about $1.00 per Word page that you convert. **Please bid on 500 pages.** So for $1/page, bid $500 (or $550 to cover fees). Actual p...

I'm looking for an Italian native speaker to transcribe music lessons (in mp3 format) into written text. ABOUT THE AUDIO The lessons are many short singing lessons that are mostly spoken, but also contain singing exercises. The lessons are all from the same teacher and are recorded in high quality with no background noise. TRANSCRIPTION REQUIREMENTS The singing exercises within the lessons should not be transcribed and replaced with placeholders. The transcription should be properly formatted (ideally written in Markdown). The transcription should be 100% accurate and not an unedited mess generated with an automated program. The pay will be $10-$20 per audio hour to begin with and will increase as the relationship moves along and you prove yourself with the work. This will be an ongoing project. In your bids please mention your charges PER AUDIO HOUR, turnaround time for 1 hour of recording.
