- Preston, Lancashire
I am a trained proofreader with a sharp eye for detail and a friendly and flexible approach. I have a passion for language, reading and writing and know the importance of having a second pair of eyes to look over your written creations.
I have a BA (Hons) in French and Spanish and a background in translation. I trained as a proofreader with the Publishing Training Centre, qualifying with merit, and am an Entry-Level member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders, adhering to their Code of Practice. I am an approved proofreader for an educational publisher and experienced in the proofreading of GCSE and A Level resources for a number of examination boards.
I have experience in the translation and proofreading of general commercial documents, student assignments and work relating to education, the arts, travel and tourism, urban design, English language and literature, and modern foreign languages.
I can mark up your documents on paper using simple notes or the proofreading symbols of the British Standards Institution, or in Microsoft Word using the Track Changes function so you have the final say over my suggested amendments.
Rates and deadlines are flexible and it will always help to see your document first in order to give you an accurate quotation. Please use the contact details above and I will be delighted to discuss your project and requirements with you.
