Copy-editing: how I can help

I can review and amend, for example:

     •   Grammar, punctuation and spelling

     •   Consistency – of terminology and spelling (in line with your style guide, if available)

     •   Flow of information and document structure – to ensure they are logical

Together, we can discuss your requirements and agree an approach. For example...

... You may be satisfied with your document’s structure and wording but want to ensure that no errors have crept in. (In particular, I can spot mistakes that a spellchecker cannot – such as if words are used incorrectly or names misspelled, or if there are obvious factual errors.)

... You may want your company style guide applied to a document.

... Or you may want your text rewritten for a particular purpose and/or group of readers. For example, you may want material rewritten for a website and/or presented in plain English.

I can perfect your text to help create exactly the document you need.

If you are unsure how to achieve your objectives, I can advise on the options available.

And if you want to develop a style guide to ensure that your documents are consistent and support your brand, I can help with that, too.







I accept documents for text editing in Microsoft Word or Adobe InDesign.
(I can also proofread in Adobe Acrobat.)
