Professional proofreading and copy-editing: on time, on budget, on brief
I’m an experienced and professionally trained proofreader and copy-editor, and your writing is safe with me.
I have eight years of editorial experience in contexts where accuracy and consistency are paramount, and ten years of experience helping authors who use English as an additional language to make their texts clear and accessible to an international audience.
My aim is to polish your text so that it makes the desired impact on your target readers. This means I’ll check thoroughly for accuracy and consistency. I’ll respect your style and voice, and I’ll avoid unnecessary or inappropriate changes. I’ll work with you to establish what you need and what you don’t need for each particular project, and I’ll give you a clear and transparent quote upfront.
As a Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), I’m bound by their Code of Practice. That means I work to the highest standards and keep my skills and knowledge up to date.
I’m fluent in all the common conventions: APA, MLA, Chicago, Harvard and Oxford, and I’m happy working with complex tables and figures. My academic specialisms are linguistics, assessment, education, teaching English, classical studies, ancient Greek and Latin.
