I am looking for someone to proofread a 125 page document that is being translated into Malayalam. Note that the number of pages might increase once the translator starts filling in the information and has translated the document.
While proofreading you may have to correct errors, correct spelling, add information, clarify something if it unclear, edit and such things.
