WHAT IS PROOFREADING?
Proofreading involves identifying typographical, linguistic, coding or positional errors and omissions on a printed or electronic proof, and marking corrections. The task of the proofreader is to make any corrections, ensuring that there are no typographical errors in the text and that house style is applied consistently. Proofreaders may also fix grammatical errors and inconsistency of style.
HOW I CAN HELP
I am a qualified proofreader with a wealth of experience working for publishers and private individuals. Past projects include student essays, academic papers, journal articles, book manuscripts, magazines, CVs, websites, flyers, brochures, letters, personal statements, white papers and high-level reports. I can work with any academic style, ensuring that it is applied throughout the document. I can also apply my own house style.
