UPDATE 16 JUNE 2021: Looking more closely at the platform rules and to better support the community we think it will be more appropriate to list tasks individually, so please keep an eye out for those tasks going forward. They will specify approximate word count and genre for more accurate bids on cost and time.
We asked for expressions of interest last year and based on that response we have a number of tasks ready to go.
We are digitising significant Australian works of fiction, non-fiction, drama and poetry that have gone out of print.
The works have been processed with Optical Character Recognition and exported as Word files, spell-checked and with common errors addressed, but will need to be checked against original scans for typographical and formatting errors, and any corrections will need to be marked up.
No rewriting or copy-editing is needed, just making sure the documents match the original — though obvious typos in the original should be marked up.
Excellent attention to detail and familiarity with spelling/grammar/punctuation conventions will be very helpful. We can offer up to $400 per work depending on length.
