Professional Editing & Writing Services

Proofreading Services

Proofreading services should come at the end of the writing process, when your document is ready to go to typesetting or print and well after the copy editing stage. Checking proofs is a critical task and any mistakes overlooked can be costly to correct at the page proof stage. A spellchecker may be useful, but it has severe limitations. It cannot replace a person who knows the difference between commonly confused words (affect and effect) and verb tenses (ran versus run).

I can provide the following proofreading services:

  • check and correct typos, spelling, punctuation, grammar, and general English errors
  • highlight any format, content, layout, heading or formatting and cross-reference inconsistencies
  • check typographical details and ensure consistency
  • suggest improvements in layout and overall presentation
