Project Description

We are a US-based Non-profit, with an office in the Middle East, who have developed an innovative program which will fundamentally change how Arabic is taught in schools, using new pedagogical methods, resources and training. Part of our program is a series of children's workbooks (Levels 1-9/K-8, for both Arabic Native speakers and non-native.) We have a total of 66 titles. Due to some normal mistakes, typos and design formatting mistakes, there are errors in these books that we need to fix.

Specifically, we are looking for 1 expert Arabic copy editor, who can help us:

1) Ensure all Arabic is perfect classical, Modern Standard Arabic
2) Fix all mistakes- spelling, grammar diacrytics, etc.

As these were written by an Arabic expert, we are NOT looking for style suggestions (about which 2 Arabic experts could argue over for hours :)

Please see our website: [url removed, login to view]

On this page, you will be able to see sample chapters for all our levels in both native and non-native.

We are looking for someone who can offer expert Arabic assistance, but who is flexible and non-egotistical or argumentative. You must have an expert knowledge of MSA/Classical Arabic, as well as the wise intuition of a copy-editor who can understand what we are trying to achieve and work with our team. If you do a good job, in addition to payment, we are happy to promote/endorse your skills and serve as a reference. This is poised to be a major program in the Middle East which will make a difference in the lives of children, teachers and their families. We hope you want to be a part of it!
