Service Description

When you hire a professional like me to work on your projects, you save time and money while taking advantage of the skills I have learned over the years.

I provide formatting, technical proofreading, and production support for intricate technical documents and complex marketing proposals.

I combine and manipulate text, data, photographs, charts, graphic art, and illustrations into prototype with attractive and readable formats.

I format documents of any type including e-books and print books for self-published authors publishing through CreateSpace, Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP), Barnes & Noble, iBookstore, Smashwords.com's Premium Catalog and more from original manuscripts in .doc (preferred). Manuscripts should be finished, proofread, edited and ready for publication. After I implement the formatting required your book is ready to upload and publish in different formats such as .EPUB, PDF, RTF, PDB, MOBI, LRF and TXT, as well as into online HTML and Javascript formats. By publishing in multiple formats, your book will be readable on any e-reading device, including Amazon Kindle, Apple iPad, personal computer, the iPhone, Sony Reader, Kobo Reader, Android smart phone, etc.

Translation skills: French-English; English-French.
