What's the point of proofreading?
Proofreading should be the final polish to your work before it is sent out into the world, giving it a few last tweaks rather than a major overhaul. Corrections are limited to those that are necessary and where there is ambiguity or doubt I will raise it with you. As part of the proofreading process for your work I will focus on:
spelling, punctuation and grammar
consistency in language, hyphenation and capitalisation
consistency in formatting, design and layout
line and letter spacing
tables, graphs, lists and captions
references, footnotes and endnotes.
Who do I work for?
My particular areas of interest are driver education, primary education and music but I am always happy to quote for any type of work from publishers, businesses, non-profit organisations, academics and students.
What formats can I work on?
I can work on documents in MS Word (using Track Changes), pdf (using Comment tools or BSI markup) and hard copy (using BSI markup).
