We need to convert existing PDFs of old magazines - they must be OCRed and converted to clean DOC or HTML. Please find enclosed sample of what you will be dealing with. If you are interested in this job, please submit a processed result of the attached sample.
Please also state what OCR software you use and what version. You MUST use an OCR software, no typing is allowed.
The result MUST NOT contain headers, footers and page numbers from the magazine, just clean text with only very basic formatting - such that would be suitable for publishing on a web site i..e. bold, italics, underline should be preserved, paragraphs and headings should be preserved, every other formatting (text flow, columns, weird fonts, page numbers etc.) should be discarded. The desired result is clean readable text with clean formatting.
The result can be in MS Word format, but ideally in clean HTML (such as that produced by [url removed, login to view] - you can use that if you wish).
The most important consideration - the result should be as typo-free as humanly possible. You are not supposed to check for grammatical correctness, just that the recognized text is the same as in the source file. You MAY correct an obvious typo in the original text, but don't have to.
The price and quality of the result are the most important consideration. Please quote either price per page and/or hourly price. With an hourly price, please quote the minimum processed pages per hour.
IMPORTANT: Maximum acceptable price is $0.08 per page. If your price is higher than this, please DO NOT BID. In order to qualify, you need to submit processed sample file (ideally in clean HTML) AND your price must be less or equal $0.08 per page. No negotiations. Offers not meeting these criteria WILL BE IGNORED.
We have many files to process, so this can potentially turn into a long-term job for you, if you can deliver.
Thank you for looking!
I am interested in making the conversions for you. I have attached the sample to a private message. I use Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro version 9.4.0. My bid is for $.08 per page.
