WORD FOR WORD

proofreading & editing

 

SERVICES

BUSINESSES/COMMERCIAL

Don’t let small errors become embarrassing mistakes. I provide a quality proofreading service for all kinds of business documentation including reports, web copy and blog posts, brochures, business plans, catalogues, advertisements, job listings and much more.

TENDERS, BIDS & GRANT APPLICATIONS

Writing bids can be daunting - don’t let simple mistakes put you out of the running. I will thoroughly check your document for errors and consistency to make sure it is clear, concise and presented professionally.

STUDENTS (UNDERGRADUATE, GRADUATE & PHD)

When you’ve spent weeks crafting your argument it’s smart to get a second pair of eyes to check for any typos or errors you might have missed. I provide a flat rate for all students so you will always know the price up front.

RESTAURANTS, BARS & CAFES

Mistakes on menus make your business look unprofessional and can be costly to fix. I will make sure your menu is word perfect before it goes to the printer.

CVS & COVER LETTERS

You may have honed your CV and written a great cover letter, but spelling mistakes and poor grammar may damage your chances of landing your dream job. Relax and leave it to me to ensure that your cover letter is error-free and your CV is up to scratch.

ESSAYS AND ARTICLES

I can help to ensure that your non-fiction articles are easy to follow, fit for purpose and free from ambiguities, errors and inconsistencies, so that the reader is free to focus on your content.

FAQ

WHAT IS PROOFREADING?

Proofreading is a final quality check and tidy-up of a finished document before publication. Proofreading edits tend to be restricted to correcting minor spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors, checking layout and ensuring consistency.

WHAT IS COPY-EDITING?

When copy-editing a document, I take a more detailed look at the text and suggest changes to ensure that it is accurate, easy to follow, and free of errors, omissions, repetition and inconsistencies.

DO I NEED A PROOFREADER OR A
COPY-EDITOR?

If your text is ready to go but just needs one final check, then you need a proofreader. If the text requires more substantial changes, you need a copy-editor.

HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?

If you are a business, please contact me for a no-obligation quote.
For students, I charge a flat rate of £10 p/1000 words.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

This depends on the length of your document. I also provide an express service which costs a little extra – please contact me for a quote.

HOW DO I SEND YOU MY DOCUMENT?

You can email me your document as an MS Word file or a PDF. I can also mark up hard copy using BSI symbols - contact me for more information.

HOW DO I PAY YOU?

I accept payment by Paypal or bank transfer. I will invoice you after the work is completed.

WHAT IF I DON'T UNDERSTAND A CHANGE/EDIT?

I am available by phone or email to discuss any changes that might be unclear. I hope you will feel free to ask me any questions, no matter how small.
