I am Hannah Jones, a professional proofreader and the owner of The Remedy of Errors. I pride myself on providing a reliable, efficient and friendly proofreading service to businesses, students and independent authors.

We all make mistakes when writing and, when we read our work back, the eye often sees what it expects to be there and not what is actually there. This is where I come in.

My service

My proofreading service is meticulous. I will:

  • correct any spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors;
  • ensure that the style is consistent (capitalisation, hyphenation, abbreviations, treatment of numbers etc.);
  • check page and chapter numbers and sequencing;
  • remove confusing word or page breaks;
  • ensure captions and illustrations correspond with each other and are arranged logically;
  • always respect the voice of the author.

Proofs can be marked up:

  • in Microsoft Word using the Track Changes and Comment features;
  • as PDFs using Adobe Acrobat;
  • or on paper using the British Standards Institution’s proof-correction marks.

“Hannah would regularly assist me in my role as Diocesan Manager for CAFOD by proof reading our external communications. We frequently produced emails and newsletters for local volunteers, supporters and school contacts and Hannah would review and correct these documents. She had a fantastic eye for detail and always delivered with the short timeframes required. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services.”
Ben Oldham, Diocesan Manager, CAFOD

“I cannot recommend Hannah’s services enough. She was amazing with my final year dissertation; I was working within a short deadline and Hannah proofread and corrected my work sooner than I expected. In the end, my most positive feedback from my dissertation was regarding my attention to detail and I only have Hannah to thank for that.”
Valentine Nguhi, BA History, University of Leicester
