Expert native English speaking editor required for book projects. This job is for multiple projects, but for example a common project will be a 50,000 word transcript, to be edited into a book, completing the following tasks: - Create section / chapter headings and sub-headings. - Read and remove any duplicate content. - Restructure/edit/re-write the paragraphs (in authors 'voice') where required to improve flow. - Edit the grammar as you go. - Identify the main points throughout, that will become call-out boxes. - Identify areas that would benefit from images, graphics, statistics or similar to improve quality of content, and make suggestions for these. - Edit and write in a conversational tone. To apply, you must be a native English speaker (Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, UK) and must be a specialist editor / proofreader / writer... and prefer experience in turning audio/video transcriptions into blog posts / articles / book format. If this is you, please apply with a few short sentences and provide samples of your work. I will interview applicants over skype, where I will show you the work to be completed. I pay a fixed rate based on the word count. For a 50,000 word transcript you will be paid $1,400... which is calculated as 40-hours @ $35/hour, so working at 1,250 words per hour. If you work quicker, but achieve a professional result, you earn more per hour. I'm NOT interested in candidates UNDER-bidding, I will pay this fixed rate for the right experts who can achieve the right result. For each project, you will have 2-weeks (preferably) to turn this project around, at most 3-4 weeks. I will prefer a contractor who can dedicate the hours to these projects and not juggle a dozen at a time and take 4-6 weeks. Please begin your reply with the word "MAGNET" so I know you have read this job post properly. Thanks. James

I am looking to work with an efficient transcriber who has experience transcribing audio/voice recordings into accurate transcriptions to form a variety of written pieces which would include: Meetings agenda notes, blogs, articles, ebooks, books and possibly even instructional guides. The transcriber need to be fast and efficient, speak excellent English, have excellent grammar. It would also be an advantage but not essential if the transcriber has the skill for turning the transcribed audio into nearly complete pieces by applying some basic formatting, editing and structuring the writing so that it is well organised. This would be a good time saver for me :-) Previous experience of this type of work is essential and I would like to see portfolio examples of some previous work. Many thanks. Adam
