Job Description

We are seeking a stellar proofreader for documents that have been translated from a foreign language into English. This will be an ongoing job for as long as a candidate is available.

The right candidate will have experience in proofreading, excellent English grammar and spelling, and also a keen knowledge of the ins and outs of MS Word, including but not limited to:
- Creating and editing tables and text boxes
- Setting margins, page breaks, and line spacing
- Using Track Changes
- Copying and manipulating images.

Candidates must use at least MS Word 2007, preferably 2010. The type of documents vary greatly and include legal, financial, and medical, to name a few. Speaking or reading a second language is not a requirement, but is a plus.

Candidates within the United States and Canada are preferable, but again, not required.

Please include your desired pay in your cover letter, but know that pay will be based on the documents, usually on a per-word and/or per-page basis. This is expected to be a commitment of at least 30 hours per week, if not full time.
