I For unpublished authors
a. Submit a cover letter and a one page bio-data or CV.
b. Submit a summary of your manuscript for editing, three chapters from the beginning, and the ending chapter. (We will not edit unfinished manuscripts.) Please email all of these documents in a zip file. The document must be typed double-spaced with one inch margins on all sides, in short bond paper.
c. Submit a table of contents and a bibliography or a list of books you used or consulted in writing the book (optional after you receive the price quote for the job).
1. We will browse your chapters, advise you on the extent and type of work that needs to be done, and send you a quote.
2. Upon your approval of the quote, we will send you a confirmation sheet, that also serves as a contract. You will sign the confirmation sheet and pay the fifty percent down payment, then we will start the work.
3. We will provide you with a schedule and deadline which you will approve and upon delivery, we shall give you time to go over our work. Expect correspondence all through out the process of editing/translation. We will be asking questions as needed in order to clarify issues related to your content.
