I'm backfilling a blog with news items. I have thousands of scanned newspaper stories that are to be converted to plain text, proof-read and corrected, and used to create a tagged and thumbnailed WordPress blog posts.
My home town of Herne Bay in Kent (UK) has two local papers - the Herne Bay Times and the Herne Bay Gazette - and the vast majority of the items to be transcribed come from these two papers. You will find a fairly representative sample of one week's worth of articles (17 scans) at:

I currently have about 3,700 scans to be processed, and will be adding a further 800-1,000 as I scan in further back copies of the papers. It is likely that once the backlog has been cleared, there would be a continuing lower intensity role processing each week's new news.
It would be most helpful if you could quote a price per thousand scans processed.
I have used a file naming convention for the scanned images of YYYY-MM-DD-Z-n where Z is G or T (to signify Gazette or Times) and n is a number generated automatically by the scanning process.
All the posts created are to be tagged "YYYY-MM-DD" according to the filename they are created from.
All posts are to have a credit at the bottom in the form (in this case) "Herne Bay Times, 25th Nov 2010", or "Herne Bay Gazette, 25th Nov 2010".
On the letters pages (e.g. 2010-11-25-G-00004, 2010-11-25-G-00005, 2010-11-25-G-00008) each letter should be a post, tagged with "Letters" and the author's name. If there are several letters under one heading, the posts created should be entitled "Shared letters title (1 of 4)", "Shared letters title (2 of 4)", and so on... doesn't happen often, though.
The editorials should be tagged "Editorial".
The names of people and streets/roads/buildings mentioned in the article should be used as tags. Any intelligent tagging you can add beyond that would be welcome!
(I'm not interested in any of the advertisements.)
It might be helpful to process one/some of the articles into WordPress blog posts and send them to me - I can let you know if you've done it "right", and that might help you judge how much time to allow. Just a thought. (Tag the posts with your Freelancer name.)
If you have any further questions, you can contact me through [url removed, login to view] in the first instance.
PS this project has been re-posted, as the bidders originally short-listed subsequently changed their price.
