I am looking for someone to dig through 500 articles that are posted in an article repository that I will provide the URL to later and perform the following tasks to add them to a Access MDB file that I will provide. These articles will end up on [[url removed, login to view]]. Please take a look at the library there to see the end result of this effort.
1. Copy and paste the text into a word processing program that will perform spell check or grammar checking (MS Word works nicely).
2. Resolve obvious misspellings and egregious grammar errors. Minor grammar mistakes or colloquial usage is fine.
3. Ensure that the author information is stored in the author table, normalizing various key pieces of information, such as name, URL, title, etc.
4. Enter the article into the database, selecting a category from an existing list that is already in the database.
Several of the fields in 3 and 4 will require a simple text to html conversion. There are many online utilities and freeware utilities to do this. MS Word's "Save As HTML" or similar tools are unacceptable as they bloat the size of the text ludicrously.
5. Ensure that no duplicate articles are entered.
I can usually do one article myself in about 5 minutes, once I get into the groove. I assume that someone far more competent will take less time.
The previous developer has left behind a bunch of macros and tools that make the process very simple.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
