    Designing and creating high-quality, stylistically pleasing, stable, functional, predictably formatted documents using the automated functionality features provided by the MS Word software, is what I do best. I have recently completed several MS Word formatting and template design projects through Upwork comprising: legal, financial and business documents; operations and technical manuals; training and course materials; all which were well suited to the numbering algorithms and other features provided by MS Word. I also have many years of experience working for the federal Justice Department typing, coding, tagging, formatting, proofreading and publishing legislation (draft bills, statutes and regulations) and other documents. Due to the high-profile nature of this work, I was required to produce quality work without errors prepared within short timeframes. Publishing for public accessibility was on paper, CD-ROM and the departmental website. I am from Canada and my native language is Canadian English so correct English spelling and grammar usage is quite natural for me. My knowledge and experience includes: - analyzing requirements and creating document formats and structures accordingly; - creating templates, style sheets and Definition Type Documents (DTDs) to enforce format and indexing specifications; - creating documents using different text editing, publishing and xml editing software: Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, Interleaf, Folio Views, Arbortext, Adobe Acrobat; - transcribe files using Express Scribe and InqScribe transcription software. I have a very good knowledge of legislative formats, structures and terminology. My performance evaluations frequently made positive reference to my dedication, commitment, reliability, conscientious attitude, persistence, efficiency, competence, creativity, perseverance, tactfulness, discretion, and attention to detail.
