I am a certified proofreader, and I received a distinction (98%) in the proofreading and editing course I completed with the College of Media and Publishing. I am also an Entry-Level member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading and I adhere to their professional standards.
It can be very difficult to spot errors or inconsistencies in your own work. For this reason, it is advisable to have another pair of eyes check over your work for any errors in spelling, punctuation or grammar, so you can present your work feeling confident that it is at its best and free of errors.
As well as removing any errors, I assess the document for consistency. For example, if “for example” is used in one part of the document and “eg” is used in another part, it can be changed to one or the other, as preferred, for consistency.
I also check for correct word usage to ensure the correct tricky words such as, affect/effect, assent/ascent, or licence/license have been used.
I will make sure the document is well-presented with your chosen font, font size, and formatting, and that this is maintained consistently throughout the document.
I offer proofreading services to whoever needs it. Whether you would like me to check over your advertising literature for your small business before it goes out to the public, or a blogger who would like to focus your creative energy on the content of your blog rather than checking it for typos, I can help you achieve a professional, error-free finish to your work.
I also carry out medical transcription work for various healthcare organisations and have previously spent many years working in the NHS, so I will happily proofread medical literature.
A free, no-commitment sample proofread is available on request.
If you are interested in hiring me to proofread your work, please contact me on the above email address and I will promptly get back to you.
