Listed in Proofreaders / Editors
Hi, I’m Katie, a freelance proofreader and Professional Member of the Society for Editors & Proofreaders.
Through my company, CopyKate, I offer proofreading, copywriting and copy-editing services to businesses – and for projects – large and small. After working in PR and marketing – primarily in the TV industry – for more than 20 years, I now work on a freelance basis with clients ranging from household names such as ITV Studios to small independent businesses.
In today’s connected world, there are so many opportunities to use copy to reach potential customers and business partners. From websites and brochures to social media and advertising campaigns, easy-to-read, accurate text will give readers trust and confidence in you and your brand. Like unwittingly walking around with paper stuck to your shoe, a big old typo can spoil the most carefully planned presentation. With my years of experience poring over materials for spelling, grammar, consistency and style errors, I can offer a fresh pair of eagle eyes to any project before it hits the streets.
My specialist areas of knowledge are television, business, marketing, public relations, retail and fashion – I am a business/marketing graduate from the London College of Fashion – but I am happy to consider projects from any industry. I’m also experienced in working with non-native English speakers on improving and optimising copy that’s been translated into English. I can proofread on paper, on screen, against copy, using the BSI proofreading marks – whichever method suits your requirements. I have a Distinction in Proofreading from The Publishing Training Centre.
Please get in touch to discuss any upcoming projects.
Katie works with us across various projects, providing copywriting and proofreading for a range of B2B and B2C marketing collateral, from market brochures to DVD covers. Her work is always of a reliably high standard and delivered on deadline.
