I undertake proofreading/proof-editing of documents, website copy … in fact any written content. I can work with pdf files or Word documents.

Proofreading or proof-editing – what’s the difference?

In a nutshell, proofreading identifies basic ‘typos’ and grammatical errors, whilst proof-editing comprises a more detailed review that typically includes a number of additional checks, such as:

consistency; numbering; headings; lists; order; tables/figures/photos; illustrations; labelling; captions; word breaks; references; footnotes and endnotes; notes; appendices; embedded links; contradictions; ambiguity; duplications and omissions; coherence; appropriate language for the intended reader; appearance/layout; and, adherence to house style guides (where applicable).

Here’s what others have to say:
