I set up my own business in October 2009 and offer a comprehensive proofreading and copy editing service from home. I am able to proofread and edit documents in both a hard copy and electronic format and I ensure that everything is edited to a high standard and to agreed deadlines. In addition to checking spelling, grammar and punctuation, I look for formatting errors, amend headings and font styles, check to ensure correct indexing, and consider consistency of information, layout and accuracy of facts. I have experience in: - working for an examining board: checking pdfs, html documents, web pages and email marketing letters. - non-native English editing of documents. - working for several clients within the creative/digital marketing field, proofreading their presentations, websites, ads, email marketing and press releases etc. - working for a private school - editing and proofreading its magazines and termly newsletters. - industry specific, technical documents and terms of business. I have edited several novels and short stories; some of which have gone on to the publication stage.
