I'm looking for several people to do a proofreading / editing job.

What is required is for you to repair errors in book titles, authors & volume.

Title: The Man About About the Dog A Novel
[should be]
Title: The Man About the Dog
Subtitle: A Novel

I have a special web page for this purpose, so you don't have to keep any records. It also preloads the content so you don't have to wait for each page to load (it loads the next page in the background.) This is to make the most efficient use of your time. Please see the attached screenshot of how this looks.

On the screenshot the right hand title page is the original, while the left hand title page is the new one. You will need to correct the title, subtitle, author, 2nd author, volume, and number of volumes in the form on the right. In the screenshot example the volume number is wrong.

You will also need to maintain titlecaps, e.g.
Book Titles Require the Title to Be Formatted Like This

I will provide full instructions to those who get the job.

I have 150,000 of these to be checked, so that is why I need several people. You will be able to work for as long as you want.

However, you must agree to do a minimum of 10,000.

In your application please indicate:
1) Your previous experience.
2) Why you are the person for this job.
3) How much time you are willing to dedicate to this job.
