I have an Access database of 1000 records that I want to convert to a tagged input file I can pour into InDesign and create a book file, directly for print. This is a print directory, featuring name, address, and about 15 fields of company data as requested.
The expected outcome is about 300 pages of 6x9 text, formatted into our page template. There are chapters before and after this work, so you will work with our designer. The job is for this major segment, not the entire book or cover.
We prefer someone who can tag the fields in Access, and then import into INDD, and play the pages out to the end, checking the output.
Can be hourly or flat fee- please respond with the way you would approach this. Work should be done by July 21. This is posted June 9.
We offer named credit on the copyright page, if you wish. Paid immediately on receipt of invoice(s)
Telecommuting- work anywhere, local not needed. We are located in Pasadena CA
Working knowledge of Microsoft Access and Adobe InDesign.
Telecommuting is allowed.
Additional Salary Information: Could be 2 hours work at $100 an hour for expert tagging, or $25 per hour for brute force. Not sure who might respond here- just being honest. Open budget, expertise is requested for INDD importing.
We publish cross-cultural books on world religions. We have a one-time directory project for which we need a consultant who knows both Microsoft Access and INDD. I belonged to STC personally, many years ago, when I was a software tech writer.
