I have a 360 page book with 222 Psalms that has been translated into Spanish and I need it to be proofread before it is published. I am willing that it could be done in a longer time frame (3-4 months even) in order to get a quality job at a lower price. I am attaching 10 of the Psalms from the book so that you can get a good feel for what you will be looking at. I want you to pick just 1 of them and proofread it and send me your comments and suggestions as to how you would do for my book. Attach the Psalm and subtitle at the top of your page that you send me.
