Hi, my name is Sarah Henstock. I’m a native British English-speaking proofreader based in Berkshire.
I want to help you bring your message effectively to your target audience. Written communication should work for both the writer and the reader, and I seek to avoid both error and ambiguity. I understand the necessary evils of deadlines and budgets, and appreciate that sometimes a quick effort is better than none at all; equally, I am comfortable getting thoroughly into a document to ensure it is consistent at the detail level and as a whole.
Having completed various training including the PTC’s Basic Proofreading course I can use the BSI symbols both on hard copy and online, and I also own a graphics tablet for when handwritten/drawn responses are required where scanning a hard copy would be inadequate.
I have varied interests and experience, but prefer to specialise under the following headings: Music, Art & Photography, Alternative Lifestyles, Water Treatment and Fiction.
While I do like to plan and co-ordinate my work for best efficiency, my time is flexible, so I have the capacity for taking on short notice, short deadline projects, and turning them round in good time to a high standard.
