What I can do

As a professional proofreader, I aim to produce a polished piece of work for you. My proofreading services will put your proofs through their paces by ensuring that text adheres to my ‘Seven C Checklist’. Text should be clear, concise, consistent, correct, coherent, complete and credible. The checks I make include (but are not limited to):

I will mark up your text using Adobe commenting tools, Word track changes or BSI symbols as required.

As part of my service, I will identify queries clearly, either adjacent to the text or on a separate document, according to your preference.

In addition, I will provide a style sheet with the finished piece to list the style conventions used and the spelling variants applied to the work.

I want you to be completely happy with the finished piece, and I welcome feedback once the work is complete. I will work with you to achieve the desired outcome.

Please visit my about page for information on my proofreading credentials.

What I cannot do

Professional proofreaders strive to achieve the goal of absolute perfection. However, absolute perfection is rarely achievable.

Although I cannot promise you absolute perfection, I can promise excellence. Errors will be minimised or, I hope, completely eliminated so that your work ticks all the boxes on my ‘Seven C Checklist’.

I will use my skills and experience to proofread your work to a high standard. Consequently, your work will be presented in a correct and professional format.
