Project Description

We got a task for the proofreading work of the dissertation (maybe by a Korean PhD candidate). In total, it contains about 13,000 words, and we should finish proofreading it within 30 days, so I decide to find 6-13 linguistics to proofread it.
We will cooperate you by preference than others, if you meet the following requirements.
The payment is 5 days after the completion of each 3000 words, by Paypal or international transferring system for banks. Firstly, I will make deposit of 25% to you, according to the total words and fee, after you finish the following small sample and after the agreement by the client.
The client (the phd) wants you to confirm the followings, before we sign the contract of the three sides.
First, you must be a real native English speaker from Britain, Canada, US, Australia.
We don't want linguistics from India, South Africa or other countries where they speak no very standard English.
Any proofreaders will not be allowed to paid, if you cannot meet the requirement above.
Second, you must be a little familiar with the academic writing, since the sentence is a little difficult. if you have experienced post-graduate study, that is better.
Third, the price should not be higher than USD [url removed, login to view], since we must earn some money between you and the client.
Fourth, you should be capable of using Microsoft Office, Word, and Excel.
Fifth, you should revise the spelling, the sentence grammar, the logic between the sentence, and you must try to improve the sentence and make it like written by NATIVE ENGLISH Speaker, avoiding any Asian-style English usages. If you think this sentence is not like written by native English speaker, you should resolutely revise it.
Sixth, the original passage can be readable so it is not difficult for an English native Speaker to revise it.

Before the starting, you must do a small sample (less than 200 words) for it. That is necessary.
if you meet the requirements above, I can give you the sample and please finish it within 12 hours.
You should do this sample test, if you do it well, we can sign the contract of the three sides.
We will not sign this three-side contract until we confirm that you are a excellent Native proofreader. Or the author will not graduate. You can ignore the special terminologies and jargons, as the author said. But you should consider the spelling, the grammar, the fluency, the conjunctions, the collocation and logic between the sentences. Please use the revising tool of Microsoft Word and please keep the trace of the original words in the revised text. Finish it within 1 day, please.
