I'm looking to have an old, dated translation of a long biographical work converted into modern US-English. This is mostly re-writing, but only in as far as modernising existing sentences goes [I'm not looking for 'new' content, per se].
The overall document is about 200,000 words long, but I'll be sharing the burden with you to get the project turned around as quickly as is possible. I'm looking for someone who can put in 7+ hour days everyday for the next week to get this back to me. Communication is also vitally, vitally important: I'll want a status report at least every two hours - with a working copy of the file attached.
Turn-around time is the most important aspect of the bid, so please only submit an offer if you are prepared to commit the next week to solely working with me on this task. Quality is also essential, of course: and I'll be looking for each bidder to complete a short sample as proof of their abilities.
I am also only looking to accept bids from native US-English speakers [or English speakers well versed in American spelling variations etc.] - all bids from those outside of this 'native English' bracket will be refused: this task requires a level of English which only a native may ever hope to possess.
Please make your bids per word - e.g. $x for 50,000 words turned around in 48 hours etc.
Please get your bids [as reasonably priced as possible] within the next few hours.
