Proof-read Software User Manual

I need an experienced English proof-reader to proof-read a software user manual.

Proof reading will include making suggestions using MS Word Track Changes for spelling, grammar and general readability. Suggested changes in formatting, layout and document flow to assist readability are also encouraged.

The document has 178 pages but only 23,000 words as there are lots of graphics.

The software relates to a data matching application; you do not need to know anything about data matching but some basic technical knowledge of Office applications such as Microsoft Access might be useful. I want the manual to be as understandable as possible to potential novice users of the software.

Please provide list/examples of previous proof-reading jobs.

I will upload the first 50 pages of the manual as a PDF to assist you with your quotation and to further your understanding of this job. I won't upload the full word document yet as I do not want anyone to start editing until I give the go-ahead.
