proofreading

I am an experienced proofreader, having worked to high quality standards across educational, academic and professional publishing. I have a keen eye for detail and I have worked with various house styles in both US and UK English.

As part of a proofread I can quality check your material for:

  • tone
  • consistency
  • house style
  • grammar
  • sentence structure
  • inconsistencies
  • accuracy.

I can also eliminate over-matter where required and work with authors to make sure that cuts do not affect the meaning or sense of the text. I have experience of proofreading highly illustrated integrated texts and have worked closely with typesetters, so can make design suggestions that will improve the readability of the text if necessary.
