proofreading checklist

I am a freelance copy editor and proofreader based in Southampton in the UK. With over 20 years’ experience in the industry and around seven years as a freelance copy editor and proofreader, I can offer you the flexibility you need when it comes to proofreading and copy editing either onscreen or hard-copy formats.

Due to my experience in this field, I understand what people want when they come to me: a quick, accurate editing and/or proofreading service at a great price. That’s what I appreciate, so always do my best to do the work as quickly and accurately as I know I can.

I completely understand that your essay, dissertation, article, magazine, book, website, etc is your baby – you only want it in the hands of people who care about it as strongly as you do. 

I will provide the following services as quickly as I can. If I have a lot of work going on, this will be hard to achieve, so I will need a little more time. Please appreciate that if I’m busy, I’m in demand, which indicates I’m very good at my job!

Rewriting Services

I can also rewrite your copy as needed. Whether it’s rewording copy, changing sentence structure, paraphrasing text or making a similar but different sentence, paragraph or document, I can also do this for you, subject to copyright. This helps avoid plagiarism and also improves any errors you’ve made regarding syntax, sense, continuity and so on.

Book Me

If you need any document (letter, CV or resume, application, essay, dissertation, article, magazine, book, website, etc) edited or proofread, this is is the place to come. I have excellent English-language skills, always work quickly and accurately, and guarantee I will give you a great service at a great price.

Any Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Libre Office or InDesign document you have, and annotate any PDF, I am able to edit. I know all the style sheets out there (Harvard, Chicago, MLA and so on), so can ensure your document fits any required style.

Also, I am incredibly efficient and accurate. All my work is done to the highest standard, so any edited document I send back to you will be perfect. I pride myself on the great work I do.

I am more than happy to revise any work I do if it’s not in line with your requirements, but generally the only time that happens is when people aren’t willing to pay their final invoice (hello Heidi Mumford!).

Contact

All you have to do is contact me through my Contact page above or email me at prooftheword.com@gmail.com.

I’ll then send you a quote of my price and we can take it from there. If it’s a large job (over £100), I’ll send you an invoice for half the payment once you send me the document, then send an invoice for the second half once I’ve completed the work.

Once we’ve agreed a price, I will do the work and send the edited document back to you via email. If it’s a big file, via a dropbox, WeTransfer or whatever means you prefer.

You can then pay me either directly through your bank or through PayPal. All my details are on the invoice I will send you. I also have an IBAN and BIC, so international payments can be made.

I guarantee you will be happy with the work I do! Any amendments you require I will do at no extra charge. Happy customers are my reason to keep going – why I’ve been successful so far.
