Transcribe/convert Acrobat PDF to HTML

I have hundreds of articles contained in Adobe Acrobat PDF format that need to be transcribed/converted to HTML format. The freelancer will be provided with PDF files which contain bookmarks pointing to specific theological articles (pertaining to the Christian Bible). Each bookmarked article will need to be copied and pasted into a HTML template (provided by the buyer), then saved to a HTML file. The formatting of the original article must be retained with regards to italics and boldface text, and footnotes.

Once the HTML files are saved, they will be transferred to the buyer. The files can be placed at Guru or via Google Drive or DropBox or some other public file sharing site.

The freelancer will be required to use Microsoft's Expression Web 4 software when creating the HTML files. This software is free and can be obtained at Microsoft's web site. (The buyer will provide the user with the download link.) Instructions on how to install and use Expression Web will also be provide by the buyer (see video at [url removed, login to view] ).

The freelancer will also be provided with 2 HTML templates to use and detailed instructions on how to convert the PDF articles to HTML format. You can view one of the instructions as a video at [url removed, login to view]

This project is a long-term project. The freelancer can be assured of future work/income if they are reliable and diligent. There are minor corrections that will need to be made to the final HTML files that require a diligent eye. When copying paragraphs of text from the PDF to the Windows Clipboard and then pasting them into the HTML editor/file, some stray/extra SPACE characters will be placed into the HTML file. These extra SPACE characters need to be caught and removed by the freelancer. Since the PDF files were the result of scanning old magazines and then processing them using OCR (optical character recognition) software, there will be some minor errors in the text recognition. These mistakes will typically be flagged by the Expression Web software with red squiggly lines underneath the suspicious words (just as you would see if you were using Microsoft Word with auto-spell checking turned on.) The freelancer is expected to compare the pasted text with the original article to see if a mistake in the OCR occurred. The freelancer will then make the correction in the final HTML file. Also, since the OCR was not able to identify italicized words, the freelancer will need to compare the source PDF file with the final HTML file and manually change words that need to be italicized so as to match the source.

If the freelancer is diligent at these tasks, they will be assured to have repeat work for quite some time to come.
