Affordable proofreading and formatting services. I am a remote freelance proofreader based in the UK and trained by The Proofreading Academy. I can proofread and edit documents using the track changes tool in Microsoft Word.
I have knowledge of the regional differences in language and spelling, so I can proofread in UK, US, and Australian English.
I am trained to proofread academic writing, including citations and reference lists and have knowledge of the common style guides.
I offer formatting as a separate service and will format documents to customer specifications including page numbering, margin settings, spacing, and dynamic lists.
I can proofread all types of writing including business, fiction, articles, academic, non-fiction, children’s stories, and more.
Well what can I say, as a complete writing novice and being a guy who had major spelling and grammar issues, I had no understanding of how to write a book let alone know what flow, pace or context of writing a book was all about, I was lost. All I had was a story to tell and after a few months I got it down on paper. I then handed it over to Paula for her help turning my word salad into word perfection.
Paula’s collaborative approach, patience, understanding and hand holding through the editing process was absolutely brilliant. From the quick email replies, asking the right questions to ensure she understood what I wanted to say. To doing extra research on my topic and the now famous “Paula polish” on the final read through, outstanding.
As this was my first book (probably my only book), I soon realised that writing about a personal journey, makes one feel vulnerable. Paula was always there helping me get through those anxious times, it is for this and many other reasons that I highly recommend her services and will be forever grateful.
I rarely come across professionals who stand out like Paula. She reviewed my PhD thesis within a week, she kept every promise and she provided suggestions how the review process could be made more efficient.
I got in touch with Paula via LinkedIn as I was looking for a proofreader for my PhD thesis. Paula contacted me and offered her services. Frankly, I was skeptical as I have had never met Paula in person, and I didn’t know if I could trust someone who I had never met before. I thought, she has the same risks as I do, so decided to give it a try. Paula offered to review a sample to show me the approach she takes for proofreading. When I saw the first two pages of her initial reviews, I instantly knew, she is professional, and I wanted her to keep going with the reviews. In return, I sent her a partial payment so that she knew that I would pay for her services and that she could trust me as well.
I would like to give the highest possible recommendation for Paula skills but most importantly for her human values, particularly the trust during our working relationship. Any student would be lucky to have Paula as a reviewer for his/her work.
Paula has proofread almost 7 of my univesity assignments starting from last May till today and I am going back to ask her to proofread 4-5 more assignments. Some of my assignment I got first class because of her excellent proofreading. Paula is professional as I like her great communication because she will always update me and reply my emails promptly with no delay at all. She is very busy but always fit my work into her schedule and return it too quick. Paula put me at ease all the time and always improve my assignment to make it 100% academic so she perform a lot of changes without changing the meaning. For all this reasons. I trust Paula because when she make a promise, she do it immediately.I really enjoy sending my work to Paula and I highly recommend all students to get in touch with Paula’s proofread their assignment to get a higher marks 😄
Many thanks Paula
I’ve worked with Paula on proofreading IDI transcriptions that have been translated into English (from Arabic audios). She went above and beyond checking the spelling and grammar by editing the narrative to portray the clearest message while keeping the integrity of the text intact.
She was very reliable and quick to turnaround the transcripts, which was wonderful since we were under a tight deadline.
I highly recommend Paula and I would definitely reach out for her in the future.
Paula is a great proofreader. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her. Even though she paid attention to the tiniest details in the document, she still sent it back to me within a day and managed to meet my deadline. Very friendly, very professional. I will absolutely work with her again!
I would heartily recommend Paula as a proofreader/editor. I’m writing my first novel, and she has really helped to enhance my book, changing words which I could not quite think off, or suggesting different wording for some parts of the text.
She will also take the book in stages, making the cost more manageable. She is attentive, and works with you, not wanting to change wording which might make the meaning of your words different from the impact you want.
I love working with Paula, and look forward to continuing our working relationship.
Have had proofreading many times with Paula.

I’m a researcher in Computer Science and Paula proofread and copy-edited one of our journal papers. Her work was excellent. I especially appreciated that she was very careful to improve the narrative flow without changing the meaning (in those cases, she made comments in the document). The communication with her was very easy – she promptly replied to all the emails and was available to make small changes after the first revision. 100% recommendable.

Paula is an artistic and insightful proofreader. I called her “Master Yoda” since she was able to bring up the best of English phraseology when reviewing and correcting articles I brought to her attention. She is reliable and keeping her promise for excellent work and timing as agreed. I recommend her warmly to anyone who wishes to use her services. Thank you, Paula!
Really, I am highly satisfied by the excellent and prompt work Paula has done .
