Project Description

I work on a Network Video Surveillance Textbook now. The textbook is written in “for Dummies” style, but has many special tech terms used in video surveillance and networking fields.

I need a native English speaking editor, who has experience in book editing and familiar with video and networking equipment.

The editor’s responsibilities are:
- Reviewing the text sentence-by-sentence
- Fixing the common spelling, punctuation, and grammatical mistakes
- Checking usage of video surveillance and networking tech terms, used in this book
- Making sure that the text is easy to understand and that the writing style is straightforward

Here’re two short text samples:
----------------
These IP-servers feature two redundant power supply units. If one of them goes out of service, the system will continue to operate due to the second one and the faulty power supply can be easily replaced without system shutdown.

HD-camera is equipped with 1.3 megapixel high-sensitive matrix that provides the possibility to create HDTV streaming video. Images recorded in this format are notable for exceptionally high resolution level unavailable with analogue CCTV cameras.
----------------

! Please send mistakes that you found in these samples with your bid.

The book has about 25000 words.
Please send your rates ($ per 1000 words) in comments.

Thank you in advance!
