A professional proofreader is an extremely accomplished editor who understands the conventions and nuances of the language.
Don’t rely on a computer program to eliminate errors or to look for logical flow and consistency in your writing.
A computer program will accept ‘fast’ when you intended ‘feast’!
And tomorrow, my friends, we will celebrate with a fast.
My services include:
proofreading – correcting errors and inconsistencies, highlighting anything that seems unclear and checking for layout issues on written material that has already been edited.
copy-editing – checking the correctness and consistency of spelling, grammar and punctuation, enhancing the quality of the writing in terms of clarity, readability and suitability to the target audience.
I encourage you, however, to ignore the terminology to some extent. I find that looking at a sample of your written material and discussing your requirements are the best ways to determine the level of work needed.
The cost of my service depends on how long it will take me to do the job, which in turn depends on the type and complexity of your written material.
If you would like a quotation for my proofreading and copy-editing services, please email me the following details about your project:
