I’m looking for an editor who can edit an e-book which relates to the building industry. The book has been written by a specialist tradesman and the editor must ensure the material is in a 'plain English' format suitable for people who are building their own homes or tradesmen who do not regularly perform this particular aspect of building.
**Target market:** Individuals who are building their own homes or tradesmen who do not regularly perform this particular aspect of building. It is anticipated that readers will have some understanding of construction processes and a practical aptitude for manual tasks.
**Approximate length:** 18,000 words.
**Job details:** The initial e-book has been written by a specialist tradesman. It is your job to ensure that the copy is in a ‘plain English’ format which makes sense to the average reader. Your work will not only be to edit the words, but to suggest possible changes to the way the material has been organised.
**The coder:** Ideally, you will have experience writing or translating technical copy. I ask that you submit samples of your past editing work. Coders may be asked to edit a couple of sample pages of the e-book prior to the job being awarded.

Hi, As I know people may need a bit more time to edit the test piece I have provided, I have extended the deadline for bidding by two days. I have also extended the time required for the successful coder to complete the job from 5 days to 10 days. Regards, OS Editor
