More englishing!

Recommended Posts

Im looking for some person, or persons to look into improving the English of various texts. I will provide the texts, you will fix any spelling or minor grammar issues.

 

Anyone that wishs to help out will need to remember they MUST NOT change the meaning or reword things to make it more "flowery". Any parts of the text that require more than changing spelling grammar of words by words, MUST be noted at the bottom of the file, and the formatting of the file MUST NOT be changed. I will be reviewing every single change and approving them all and will reject anything that is more than a minor change, and has not got a good reason down.

 

Any questions feel free to ask, I will give people small chunks of work and all will be rewarded :)

From this evening I will probably be busy all weekend and wont be able to assign work, but after the weekend I will probably be able to start giving people chunks of work.

And for anyone that didn't realise, the title being bad English is irony, we British do this a lot, just ignore our quaint ways :P

Well, I suppose I can put my name out there for this. I'm already working through the AL, but, due to the scale of the problems with it early on, the changes will probably have to be manually approved by Mur, which, as reviewing the changes is probably just about as fun (and as slow) as figuring out how to word the entries nicely in the first place, probably won't happen anytime soon.

Are you talking about the capitalized terms you used in your post, or terms scattered throughout the texts you'll be sharing?

but Ill be horrible with grammar.
