Does your writing need a fresh eye and some editorial polish from a SfEP member?
I am a safe pair of hands for proofreading your thesis, report, book or article. I abide by the UK Society for Editors and Proofreaders’ (SfEP) Code of Practice. I am a graduate and have experience in academic journal publishing, and in editing marketing communications for charities and medical associations. An honours degree in Latin underpins my understanding of language, grammar and accuracy.
I am trained in proofreading and copy-editing via SfEP’s recognised courses.
I can proofread, copy-edit or proof-edit your writing using Word track changes, PDF commenting tools or on paper, whichever is preferred. I am a native English speaker. I can work with text in non-native English and undertake re-writes of translations. My subject areas are Classical and Medieval Latin, French, humanities, health, education, additional support needs, children’s play, parenting, local history, family memoirs. I will work in other subject areas too, so please ask.
Timescales are paramount; please contact me in good time to discuss your deadline and obtain a quotation.
Your eyes will see your mistakes, but the more you ‘re-read’ your own writing, your brain will register what it thinks is correct. It may well not be! This is frustrating.
I welcome all enquiries and can offer high standards, a fresh eye, understanding and excellent communication. Please get in touch, on email@example.com. My company is de Lorentz Editorial Services, so for further information please visit the website: http://delorentzeditorial.weebly.com/
