Why hire a proofreader?

When producing documents, publications, brochures, catalogues, etc., it’s inevitable that some errors will slip through undetected and make their way into print, or onto the web.

The brain is very clever and often sees words as they should be, and not as they are. That’s why it is advisable to hire someone who is trained and qualified to spot these errors. 

If you take pride in yours and your company’s reputation; polished, professionally-written literature and web content is the icing on the cake.

I can proofread your document from as little as £12 per 1,000 words. It will be checked for:

  • Spelling, punctuation, and grammar. 
  • Consistency of style.
  • Ambiguity and unclear meaning.
  • Typing errors.
  • Factual errors.

I can also edit your document from as little as £20 per 1,000 words, where, in addition to the above, I will check for:

  • Best use of grammar.
  • Content and structure.
  • Repetition, jargon, slang, and clichés.
  • Suitability for your target audience.
  • Legal checks: copyright, trademarks, data protection, defamation.
