Project 1


Please read the following very carefully so that there are no misunderstandings.

What we need to understand:

1. Are you able to follow instructions carefully?

2. Do you have access to a workstation capable or undertaking a long term project?

3. Do you have regular access to the internet?

4. Can you be part of a long term project?

If you are able to answer yes to these questions,  then we can move to the next step.

We have established a well respected research web site:

We need people who are able to transcribe cursive or typed pages from about 100 years ago. The workflow will be regular and long term. Once a working relationship has been established, that is reliable work is produced and reliable payments made, we are happy to provide greater quantities of work with bonuses paid on completion of projects. The nature of the projects are clearly detailed in the test page below.


To reimburse you for your efforts, I need to have your preferred method of payment. That requires:

1. Bank account details if you wish to have a direct deposit; or,

2. Online transfers through SafePay or Paypal. Again, we need account details. These are the options offered by Guru, you still need to determine which you prefer.

When nominating method of payment, could you also detail your preferred currency.

Payment will be a flat rate piece work rate dealing with complexity of task, words required to be produced, and time frame. 

In addition, an expenses allowance will be paid to cover the cost of internet fees. This will be a flat rate added to the payment for completed work. 


Frequency of payment

To establish trust, initially we need to conduct a small piece of business first. We need to know you can do the job and you need to know that you are being paid. Once a small job is completed, we will move onto larger projects.

Start off by replying to this through using the "Post Comment" Link at the bottom left hand of this item.

Note: You do not need to log on. 

Please copy and paste the following questions in the text box and then give brief answers to them.

Project 1 - Test Page


This pic size is more than adequate for a work surface. It presents the simplest data transfer format. This particular post is a trial to see if we can undertake work assignments and transfer information with ease utilising one platform.

You are advised to save the page to your hard drive or if you are using an internet cafe style service, save it to your flash drive.

To save the page, go to


Save Page

Then save the page. That means you do not need to be on the internet for very long for this will be saved in your cache and accessible on your computer at any time.

Below is a scan of the page that needs to be transcribed.


Transcription layout.

Copy as is although indents are not required.



April 28th 1. OPERATIONS.

1827. XXI Corps wire. WASI BALLUT, BENAT BURRY and EL KEFR shelled during afternoon. (G.33)

1257. Descorps wire. HAJLA bridge completed 0600 this morning and bridgehead held. (G.A. 988)


Each paragraph should have a white line - "enter" between it and the next paragraph as illustrated above.

This is the only formatting require by yourself, apart from standard wordprocessing conventions.


Posting transcript

Reply using the "Post Comment" Link. 

Note: You do not need to log on.

Then copy and paste your content in the text box. You have no need to worry about html, this function occurs automatically.

When your text has been placed in the text box, input the verification code and submit. 

When you have placed an item online, I will receive an automatic verification email and that will indicate that the data transfer is complete.


Every pic of text will be conducted on this basis if that is suitable for yourself. 

For any questions or problems, please email:
