    Proofread the entire Website This task also includes the website’s footer files.We are in the process of finalizing the website now, and it will be ready for proofreading on or about December 03, 2010. It will be finalized and frozen before the project is awarded.We are not seeking any further editing of this website.This website has been edited / proofread several times, and the sole task of the proofreader for this project is to proofread. No further recommendations, suggestions, rewording, etc will be accepted.We will only consider freelancers who have a minimum of 10 reviews with a rating of 9.5 or higher. To ensure the proofreader finds all errors, we have planted into each page a minimum of two known errors.

You must find them yourself.It will be your task to not only find the known errors, but also find others we missed. We will continue to proofread at our end, so it will be a race to determine who finds the errors first. We expect delivery on this project within two weeks after award of project. We ask your down payment be 35%, with the balance due upon the successful submittal of finding all known errors. If you fail to find all known errors, you must consent to consider the 35% down payment as payment-in-full.

    Hallo, I need a very expert person to convert n. 5 pdf files of Newsletters (every file has 1/2 pages) to Microsoft Word.Microsoft Word files converted must be exactly as the original pdf are. There should be no difference: text fonts and style, images placement, text columns, and overall document layout must be preserved 100%.In the Microsoft Word file converted, all texts must be texts and not images because I need to modify them in the future (except the text in the logo, of course).The format is A4.I can give pdf files and eps files too: maybe it is easier open them with Photoshop and cut header image, etc and then create the Microsoft Word. Or I can give InDesign original file.I attach here an example.Please give me some valid and real example of your similar job.ThanksG.
