Over the last few years, I have edited and formatted a wide range of MS Word documents suitable for conversion to eBook formats (ePub or mobi) as well as for print ready PDF files. My core competency lies in MS Word editing skills and implementing latest tools and techniques in the field of hard copy printing and eBook publishing jobs. I also have some good experience in using Adobe products like PageMaker, Photoshop, Frame Maker, In-Design and Acrobat PDF for developing print-ready Technical Manuals and User Guides.
