I trained as a proofreader with the Publishing Training Centre and am a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP). I can provide proofreading solutions using track changes in MS Word, comments on PDFs, BSI symbols, or any other format required by the client.
Proofreading for business
My previous career was in HR, during which time I completed an MA in Personnel and Development from the University of Westminster. Therefore, I have a broad knowledge of most areas of Human Resource Management (especially the Compensation and Benefits field) and am familiar with the subject themes in HR and business. I can assist with the checking of documents relating to your employees, such as employee handbooks, policy documents, articles, etc., or with publications such as textbooks, handbooks or magazines.
Proofreading for speakers of English as a foreign language
I graduated from the University of Exeter with a BA in French and Italian, and after this, I gained my CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) certificate and taught English in Italy. I understand the difficulties in communicating in a language other than your native tongue! If you have written a document in English, a proofread can check for common problems that non-native speakers come across, such as troublesome spellings, words that sound the same but have different meanings and spellings, word orders and ‘false friends’.
