Proofread an 80,000-word document in English against original scans
Freelance / Casual
We need a potentially large quantity of scanned books proof-read and accurately formatted.
Documents have been processed with Optical Character Recognition and exported as Word files, 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 is needed, just making sure the documents match the original — though obvious typos in the original should be marked up.
A small number of Word character and paragraph styles (eg italics/bold, chapter heading/opening paragraph/normal paragraph) will also need to be applied to match the original.
Excellent attention to detail and familiarity with spelling/grammar/punctuation conventions will be very helpful. Please quote for 80,000 words.
