Proofreading and Copy-editing

Words are important.

To communicate effectively, the correct words need to be presented in the correct order with the correct spelling and punctuation.

But what is “correct”?

That depends on a complex interaction between the intentions of the author, the expectations of the intended audience, the conventions within which the text is to be published, and the context in which the text is to be received.

Which is where I come in.

You define the message (if you’re the author) or the medium (if you’re the publisher) and I can help to make the one appropriate for the other.

Whether it’s checking, polishing, tweaking, reshaping, or rewriting, I can help with:

  • books
  • magazine/newspaper articles
  • academic papers
  • theses
  • websites
  • marketing material
  • presentations
  • internal company documentation
