Proof read 6 books. Native English speaker required

Closed

Hello,

I have 6 books each approximately 100,000 words that need to be proof read. They were originally print books that are being converted into eBooks. They are about 98% accurate from the print version the but the scanning and editing process may have introduced errors.

I am looking for a native English speaker who can do this job cost effectively and accurately. You will be required to proofread the Microsoft Word version of the manuscripts and any edits (or issues) will need to be identified by "track changes". I will then ultimately make the changes as I check against the print book version.

Future work may be forth coming if I find a solid and cost effective worker.

cheers

Ben
