I just checked these files. What I would like you to do with them, is to check that nothing is missing, that all gender marks and other signs are on the right side of the words and that’s it. Please upload these files to server when done, I will have to continue working on them myself.

I cancel your file order. Please do not work on this file. It had been reassigned to other person.

Here are two German files:
JD_100201_Localize_11a
JD_100201_Localize_11e
They are in one of the zipped files on the Proofread->German.
They are urgent.

From now on you do not need to write all the hyphen replacements or ~55~ replacements you make. Only what you are not sure (what you spot, but don’t change) and what is for proofreader or me to check.

By the way, if there are double hyphens in English, do not change in the target – they often use double hyphens in replacement to dash.

Please confirm receipt.

———————-

Here are few more:
17e,p
7b,c

———————-

And:
13m
14f

Please confirm!

.

will upload her file within 30 minutes.

, you don’t give me time to reply to your messages. Please let me know if you will do these files or not.
If you don’t respond in timely manner, I will have them reassigned.

———————-

I checked the file, it was okay. There were few small things like periods here and there, but overall good work.

———————-

Fine, sorry that I didn’t manage to do the task without a mistake, hope it will come with experience.)
What should I do now?

———————-

Oh, good, I was going to reassign them already.

I will check the invoice today and forward it to Karel. I still had not time.

” ok, take your time ”

Sorry, I did not know that it was so urgent task.
I was away today till now.

I already started the task yesterday and it was done partly.

Could I have then this finished vetted file (by other person) to see what actual work had to be done – to compare it with my changes and use it as training sample?

Please do not assign to me urgent things as I am proceeding slowly through the file keeping thorough attention to details and constantly referring to instructions file (to avoid any mistakes).

Once I am trained and all needed instructions are in my head, I will work faster.
