Translate and transcribe handwritten recipes into well formatted documents/ebook


Job Description

I have a stack of home recipes (many handwritten) that I need inputted into a well formatted document that will eventually be used in an ebook. This job will require you to convert 25 recipes as this is a test run to see if you will get the job of converting all of our recipes into well formatted, easy to read and desirably formatted to distribute to consumers.

You will need to have strong skills of reading/deducting cursive handwriting as well as basic knowledge of cooking abbreviations/slang. The most valuable skills needed is the ability to read and decipher the handwritten recipe and input it into a Word document. If you really want to dazzle me and have the skills to make it happen, I would like to see the recipes include pictures and graphic art pertaining to that recipe as to be appealing to the consumer.

The ideal, perfect person I am looking for will have a base knowledge of cooking terms, fluently work with Microsoft Word, and have experience working with iBook Author on a Mac. They would also have a background of design that can put together a great recipe book (using iBook Author) with videos, pictures & interactive content that can be used to sell to general consumers. It would also be helpful to be able to "dumb it down" and make the recipes simple to understand for someone inexperienced and wanting to learn to cook. If you have all these skills and know how to apply them to produce an elegant, gorgeous recipe book, please feel free to WOW me. Please provide me with a few of your previous works.
