Please do not bid if you do not have Microsoft Word 2007 or 2010. If you submit one of the trial assignments and your work product is excellent, you are very likely to receive this bid or another bid in the future (I will invite you to bid on future projects).
Nature of Documents: The Microsoft Word documents for this job contain text that was copy-and-pasted from a website, so residual HTML formatting issues exist and the documents contain extraneous clutter (including incorrect page numbers in the body of the document rather than the header or footer and seemingly random formatting issues, such as random page break lines).
Objective: We need the core information in the documents to remain absolutely unchanged, but we would like to make the documents user-friendly in Word (by adding automatic update features to multilevel lists, indexes, tables of contents, page numbers, etc.) and look professional (by removing unnecessary page numbers and other clutter and re-formatting the information in the document).
Assignment: We need to re-format the Word documents provided so that the documents (1) conform to a uniform standard (Arial font, size 10, 1 inch margins, and page numbers centered in the footer of each page), (2) do not contain any extraneous clutter, (3) look professional, are clean and legible (many tables did not copy well, and the row heights and column widths are off, resulting in tables that fall outside the document margins; we need to adjust the columns and rows so all the information appears within the margins in a user/viewer-friendly fashion) and (4) have multilevel lists, indexes and tables of contents that automatically update when users modify the content of the documents. (Many of the documents contain lists, indexes and tables of contents, but none of them automatically update within Word; Note: if the document does not contain multilevel lists or a table of contents, we do not need to add them.) More detailed instructions and examples are included in the attached files.
Please follow the instructions, including the more detailed instructions attached (file name: Specific+Instructions), review the before and after work product examples so you know what we are looking for, and submit to me a formatted version of TRIAL ASSIGNMENT 1, TRIAL ASSIGNMENT 2 or both. Based on those results, we will select a candidate (or candidates) for the job. If we are impressed with your work product and you continue to perform well, we have thousands of hours of work to be done.
