Hello, my name is Paul Lancaster. I provide either a proofreading service or a copyediting and proofreading service. For student-related documents (such as PhD theses, dissertations and essays) only the proofreading service is available. For all other document types, either of the two services can be requested.

Proofreading service:
My normal approach is to thoroughly go through the document so as to check and correct for grammar, punctuation, syntax / sentence structure, flow, spelling, and consistency of spelling and word use. You’ll receive a version in track changes that fully shows all of my suggested amendments as well as, when appropriate, any additional comments, suggestions or questions written in comment boxes. I will also send a ‘clean’ version with all of the amendments accepted and the additional comments, etc, removed.

Copyediting and proofreading service:
This service will be of benefit when the writer of the document is looking to have more significant amendments made. Such amendments could be the restructuring of significant portions of the text, rewriting / paraphrasing of text, or reducing the word count by a significant proportion. It is possible for such copyediting to be requested for only part of the document, and with the proofreading part of the service being undertaken on all of the document.

My experience and knowledge:
Over the years I have come to particularly specialise in helping people who use English as a second language (ESL). Apart from the UK, my clients come from many different countries and cultures including Japan, China, South Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, Spain, Italy, the Czech Republic, Russia, Turkey, Mexico, Venezuela, Brazil, India, Saudi Arabia and Iran. As such, I am very familiar with the typical difficulties that a range of nationalities often experience when writing in English.

Through my previous employment, studies and client commissions I have gained a particular understanding of topics in the fields of economics, business and finance, marketing and branding, international development / the developing world, globalisation, sustainable development, environmental issues, social media, politics and law, journalism, health and medicine, education, languages learning, fashion and design, architecture and urban design, town planning, regeneration, infrastructure, and urbanisation.

In my previous employment within the UK civil service, I worked on the development of government policies and legislation, particularly in respect of economics, regional economic development, town planning, regeneration, sustainable development, and nationally significant infrastructure provision. This included writing, proofreading and copyediting detailed policy documents and guidance; working with government lawyers in the drafting and proofreading of legislation; and writing briefings and correspondence for government ministers.
