I have a novel that was originally written on an electric typewriter, then scanned. I need to have this novel transcribed to a Word doc so that it can be edited, and then self-published via CreateSpace.com. Createspace requires specific formatting depending on the style and size of the book; they offer downloadable Word templates, which are blank or contain "sample formatted content." The transcription needs to be in the correct format (5.5 by 8.5 trim size with inside margins of .5") You can view the templates here: https://www.createspace.com/Products/Book/InteriorPDF.jsp
I need for the Word doc to be compatible with Office 2010.
The book has 196 written pages, including a table of contents, a title page, and a dedication. It is my late father's memoir about serving in the Marine Corps during the Korean War. It has some misspelled words, so if those can be corrected during transcription, that would be helpful.
I'd like an estimate of how long it would take you to complete the job; thank you.
