Proofreading, Editing and Revision

Do you have the makings of a great text? I can bring out the very best in it, optimising its structure, style and language. I will iron out any typos or errors. If desired, I can also suggest content-related changes.

I CAN OPTIMISE:

  • Academic work and publications
  • Book manuscripts, particularly non-fiction
  • Press releases
  • Corporate and staff magazines
  • Corporate and staff magazines
  • Training documents
  • Website text
  • Newsletters and mailings

and much more, including shorter texts.

Confidentiality is guaranteed.

HOW I WORK:

I add my corrections and comments to your document (Word, PDF, printed copy) so that it’s easy for you to see. You’ll be able to check through and accept or reject each change.

If desired, I can also work directly in your content management system.
