Passionate about helping you polish your written content | Business and legal proofreading and editing
I’m passionate about helping you improve your written content. Proofreading your own work is easier said than done and even though you are certain your text is polished to perfection, a professional proofreader will add a final sparkle 💎. I proofread and edit business and legal content and will work with you to make your text clear, consistent and accurate.
WHAT I CHECK FOR
Every client has different requirements, but I generally check for:
✔️ Errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation.
✔️ Appropriate tone and style for the audience.
✔️ Sense and flow of your words.
✔️ Consistent style (eg ise/ize, capitalisation and use of hyphens).
✔️ Consistent formatting and page elements (eg headings, page numbers and spacing).
✔️ Correctly labelled tables and illustrations.
✔️ Formatting of references and citations.

Clare has helped me out on numerous occasions with proofreading and editing my business documents. She provides sensible suggestions for changing the text where necessary and corrects all my typos and grammar/spelling errors. Clare has eagle eyes and notices issues that I would never pick up on myself. I cannot recommend her services highly enough.
