I’m a freelance proofreader with a first-class Honours degree in Business and Management.
I’m an entry-level member of, and trained with, the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) and I adhere to their Code of Practice. I achieved a distinction in my proofreading training.
My competencies include proofreading using Microsoft Word, Adobe Acrobat and the BSI proofreading marks.
When proofreading I check for the following:
errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation
inconsistency in spelling, hyphenation, numerals, fonts and capitalisation
non-adherence to preferred style guide/house style
errors in page numbering, tables, illustrations and their captions
missing or repeated text
wrongly-placed or incorrect captions and annotations.
