Proofing & Editing

A professional proofreader catches silly typos or mistakes, saving you a fortune in reprints and regrets.

A professional proofreader finds and corrects any typos, misspellings and grammatical errors before it is too late

Professional proofreading and copy editingIt’s a horrible feeling when you find a mistake in your copy. As luck has it, typos tend to go unnoticed until after you’ve printed thousands of copies or sent it to the publisher.

Typos and misspellings are easy to make, especially if you’ve been working on the document for a while. A professional proofreader offers a fresh set of eyes to not only find, but correct any typos, grammatical errors and misspellings.

It doesn’t get any better than a former English teacher proofreading and editing your academic work, marketing copy or website content. I know the rules of the English language and when it’s okay to break them. I don’t trust or use spelling and grammar checkers. They cannot reliably catch things like word choice, apostrophe usage and context. And they definitely don’t make suggestions on how to make your writing clearer, persuasive or more concise.

The difference between proofreading and copy editing services

A professional proofreader corrects spelling, grammatical and typographical errors. Copy editing improves the context, organization and flow of the writing. It’s common for proofreaders to check the accuracy of the mechanics, but copy editing goes a step farther to improve the text for better understanding. Copy editing ensures the content is clear, correct, concise, complete and consistent.
