I'm looking at hiring 3 separate freelancers who can edit/proofread language guide books meant for people trying to learn Italian, French, & German. Or, I'll hire one person who can do all 3 books.
Each book has approximately 20,000 words of content. Much of it is in American English. Your job is the following:
Goal: get the book edited so that the foreign language i.e. Italian, French or Spanish is 100% correct.
-Another way to say it, if a native Italian speaker read the book, they would find it 100% correct in terms of what the book is teaching.
-If a native French speaker read the book, they would find this book 100% correct
-If a native German speaker read the book, they would find this book 100% correct
Book is made for beginners trying to learn a foreign language.
The end book must be high quality. No negative reviews from native speakers of Italian, French or German should be left because the book is 100% correct in terms of what it is teaching.
Further details on turn-around times will be provided as the interview process moves further along.
