Weekly Editing & Proofreading Job

Quick job description

We need someone to proofread and edit 100 product descriptions per week. Each description is about 200 words long.

Job in more detail

We have an online store (mostly books and software) and we are constantly adding new products to our site. When a new product is added, a short product description is also written (it's about 200 words long). Since we outsource this work to non-native English speakers, these descriptions are not in perfect English. We do, however, only hire people with good English language skills, so you won't have to do a complete rewrite or even make a lot of changes. What you will have to do is correct a couple of punctuations, change the word order in some cases, and maybe replace an unusual word with a more common one. In rare cases, you will have to rewrite a sentence or two, in order to make the text contextually correct and make it sound more like something a native speaker would use in his speech.

The final result should be a grammatically correct text that reads like it was written by a native speaker.

What the work will look like

First, let me say that this is a weekly assignment. That basically means that you will be required to proofread and edit 100 product descriptions each week. You will receive a username and password, so you'll be able to login to our site with administrator privileges. There you will find 100 new products each week. You will open up each product, edit its description and save it.

You will get 100 new products each Monday and will have to edit and proofread them before the next Monday.

How to bid

Please bid with a weekly fee - tell us how much it would cost to proofread and edit 100 product descriptions with about 200 words each.

If you would like to see what the product descriptions look like before they are edited, just let me know and I'll send you a couple of samples.

What to include in your bid

Please tell us a little bit about yourself and, if possible, include some samples of your work. This can be pretty much anything that you're written (or even just edited). It could be your articles, web content, your blog…

If you don't have any samples of your writing, include about 200 words description of yourself in your bid. This way we'll get to know a little bit about you and also get a feel for your writing style.
