Listed in Proofreaders / Editors
I am a trained proofreader and copy-editor with a background in law and government. If you have academic, reference or business text, I can help you.
My recent work includes copy-editing law and social sciences books for OUP (Rodger et al., The EU Antitrust Damages Directive; Mary Cox, Hunger in War & Peace) and proofreading for Chatto & Windus (Helena Kennedy QC, Eve Was Shamed) and Vintage Press. I have also proofread and edited academic essays
and business reports.
Feedback I receive from publishers and other clients is consistently positive.
I previously worked in the civil law team at the Ministry of Justice, and (as part of my policy role) copy-edited and proofread a range of published and internal documents, such as consultation papers and ministerial briefings. I also currently supervise individual students undertaking research projects as part of an MA law degree with BPP University. I agree their objectives, comment on one draft of their report (including pointing out frequent errors in grammar or language, and flagging up areas that lack clarity), and then mark their final report.
What I can do for you:
Perhaps you just want a second pair of eyes to give your text a quick once-over, or your document would benefit from extensive editing, or maybe you want something in between; I have the flexibility to work to the level (and budget) you require. If you are not sure, I can help you to work out the level of input you need.
* At a basic level, I will check your document for spelling and grammar errors, internal consistency, and correct use of English.
* If required, I can suggest amendments to the order and layout of your text.
* I can also check that your document complies with any style guide requirements that you need to follow, and check the accuracy of cross-references, image captions, tables of figures etc.
