The proofreading process

I can proofread on paper, blind or against copy, and on screen using Track Changes in Word or mark-up and comment tools in pdfs.

On paper, I will return your text with alterations and suggestions highlighted using British Standards Institution proof correction symbols or using another agreed method.

Using Track Changes, I will return your document with corrections and suggestions highlighted on screen.

If your document is a pdf, I will return it with corrections and suggestions shown in a comment side-bar.

In addition, with each proofreading method, I will provide a document-specific style sheet covering, for example, spelling and punctuation choices, UK English, phrasing, flow, capitalisation, abbreviations and the use of numbers.

Fees are determined by the length of your text, how much or how little work is required and your deadline.

To determine the fee I will usually proofread a sample of your document then estimate how long the full proofread is likely to take.

Please get in touch if you’d like to chat about the proofreading of documents for web or print.
