Partial Formatting Service

This is where we share the load. I do part of the hands-on formatting work for you. It may be a relatively small thing, e.g. correcting the layout of a single complex table. Or it could be more substantial, e.g. importing a collection of publications, questionnaires and forms into your appendices.

How it works

  1. You contact me by phone or email and we clarify your exact requirements
    • We determine your requirements and a mutually workable schedule.
    • I provide you with an estimate of the cost
    • You decide if you want to go ahead
    • If you decide to proceed, you pay for 1 hour in advance as a non-refundable deposit
  2. You send me your source materials by the agreed commencement date
    • I then carry out the work within the agreed timeframe,
    • I maintain close contact with you throughout the process to ensure my formatting aligns with your needs and preferences.
    • I also notify you of any unforeseen issues I encounter that may have implications for our schedule or costs, and I outline your options.
    • You choose whatever action you want taken (and by whom) to resolve these issues.
  3. When my formatting is completed, I send you a (watermarked) PDF version for your review
    • You check the work and advise of any formatting adjustments needed.
    • I apply formatting adjustments and send an updated PDF to review.
    • We repeat this cycle until we reach a fully satisfactory end result.
    • You pay any balance owing.
  4. I send you the finished work
    • I provide your finished work as a WORD document, PDF (unwatermarked) or whatever other file format is appropriate (e.g. PowerPoint, Excel, JPEG).
