Books, journals, theses . . . and more! I have extensive skills in Microsoft Word and Excel; and I specialise in formatting tables so am able to format books in raw Microsoft Word format and produce print-ready pdfs. I also have extensive knowledge of Adobe Indesign for books which require more sophisticated indepth layout than that available in Microsoft Word. I offer the following services: Compilation of files into one complete document Inserting images and graphics, resizing and converting to cmyk or greyscale Placement of tables and styling of same to ensure data is clearly read Inserting headers and footers Inserting page numbers Creating Tables of Contents Creating styles for numbered and bulleted lists to ensure consistency Fixing typographical errors, e.g. spacing and hyphenation; spacing between a bracket and text; replacing ’ . . .’ with ellipses and ‘-’ with an en dash and many other common and easily overlooked errors A low-resolution pdf will be produced for proofing purposes. Once any changes have been made (changes to actual written content will incur a charge but minor changes to styling are free) another low-resolution pdf will be produced for final proofing purposes. A print-ready pdf with embedded images and fonts will be supplied either on DVD or emailed to your desired printer.
