Proofread Something Summary: ======== I am seeking a competent and detail-oriented proofreader to read emails, text messages, and letters thoroughly, and to find specific subject therein. Please read the entire post carefully before making a bid. Details: ======== This will require signing a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) before you begin. This gig is only available to applications currently located in the United States. No proofreading per se is needed -- just content review. A former romantic and business partner verbally promised me something and is now reneging. I need someone to determine if they ever promised it to me in writing before I can move forward with getting it. You’ll need to read each email (about 200), text message (1,600 super short mostly one sentence messages, all easily accessible in a spreadsheet), and scanned letters (about 20) carefully to determine that. This is a needle-in-a-haystack job. It cannot be automated, and you won't be able to use "search" to make this easier. If you find an explicit, unequivocal promise to give me the specific thing he promised verbally, I’ll pay you an extra $500 on top of your quote (do not include that in your bid amount as it would be a tip for a job well done). Obviously I will let you know exactly what to look for when you start the gig. I don’t have a way of counting the number of words in the emails. Some of them are several paragraphs (a few hundred words). Most of them are much shorter (as few as 5 words). Some of them are just forwarded airline reservations and the like which you could skip entirely. I cannot share the documents until you start the gig. I don't see it taking a lot of time, I just personally don't want to go through the emotional process, and I am eager to pass this on and put it behind me. When you accept, please send me what computer operating system you use (OSX or Windows) and whether or not you have the Microsoft Outlook software program (it is part of Microsoft Office) installed on your computer. I don't have more information about the gig to provide. Please only make an offer that you are ready to accept and start working on without asking for more information. Thank you. 58 Proofreading, Editing, Legal Research, English (US) May 23, 2017 Today6d 2h $143
