Proofreading

What you write, on the company website, in your blog, book, magazine or research paper, demands the lustre of professionalism. And that means no mistakes.

  • Typos and inconsistencies
  • Missing or misspelled words
  • Poor grammar, punctuation or layout
  • A sequence that just isn’t logical …

… could all send readers elsewhere, and with them could go the chance of new business, better funding, a challenging opportunity or mainstream coverage.

Send me your writing – on paper, as a Word document or a PDF  – and I’ll make it the best it can be while still respecting your voice. 

I’ll check that your spelling is British English and that capitals, numbers and abbreviations are all used consistently. And I’ll spot grammar and punctuation errors, and highlight problems that might trip readers up.

I’ll be your quality control.

My fee for your project will depend on the length of your text, your deadline and how much (or how little) work it requires.
