Index:Palestine Exploration Fund - Quarterly Statement for 1894.djvu[edit]

This is a fascinating document, and if it's OK with you, I wish to contribute in the coming weeks to proofread the cover pages, Table of Contents and the Index.— Ineuw talk 15:26, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

Sure it's OK... I intend to work on one of the articles (as soon as I learn how exactly to do this..) --Erel Segal (talk) 17:57, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
Learning by others' corrections of your work, as well as studying proofread material at random, helps a lot. I would suggest that you begin to proofread your document page by page and concern yourself with the accuracy of the reproduced text, rather than trying to pick up everything all at once, i.e: stylistic enhancements like font sizes, or the Hebrew and the Arabic text, etc. Do a page, or a couple of pages, and connect with me for help or just to look at your work as I may be more accessible than most people here because I am retired and working on a multi year project. In time you'll develop your own style & work habits. After meeting the proofreading requirements of WS, I found that consistency is what's most important.— Ineuw talk 18:45, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
OK, I learned from the corrections on my first page, and did my second one: Page:Palestine Exploration Fund - Quarterly Statement for 1894.djvu/232. What do you think? --Erel Segal (talk) 05:26, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
It's perfect!, Shekoach.— Ineuw talk 13:38, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
PS:To prevent a two pronged post on the topic of the file quality and page order, one here and another in the Scriptorium, please read the conversation there.— Ineuw talk 14:02, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
