Samut-samot is now branching out to offer the document conversion services described below under the name Verbatima. Since this is only a part-time freelance endeavor, projects will be initially limited to five a week. The number of projects reviewed and accepted weekly depends on the complexity and length of these projects. Clients will be communicating directly with me—the one doing the actual translating, transcribing, subtitling, and document conversion—not through an agency or company.

INFORMATION FOR SUBMITTING PROPOSALS FOR VERBATIMA SERVICES

Interested clients may email their project proposals with the detailed output requirements to samutsamot.mom@gmail.com or verbatima@protonmail.com.

Files are subject to review prior to being accepted as projects. Files are kept confidential and will be deleted from my devices if proposals are not accepted.

Clients must own the copyright to the text in the file or have the text properly credited in the final document.

Images in the presentation or file must be owned by the client or be properly credited in the final document.

Except for elements in a presentation template, I cannot insert images (clip art or photographs) due to copyright restrictions unless a client has purchased the right to use those images.

For Presentation Creation projects, clients who are educators are preferred (but not strictly) since my background is math and science education at the high school and university levels. Presentations with charts, diagrams, and tables are welcome.

Conversion time depends on the complexity, quality, and length of the file or document, but I prefer to complete a project in 1 to 3 days after all the details have been ironed out with the client.

A client should be conveniently reached through his or her mobile number and email account for clarifications.

Clients may be requested to write a short review about their experience after completion of the project.
