PROOFREADING

Ensuring your text is as good as it deserves to be

Whether your area of expertise is plumbing, finance or archaeology, you do not need to be a language expert because I can cover that base for you. Just as you would ask a specialist to fit a boiler, hiring a proofreader to check the accuracy of your text can save you time and money in the long run.

Even those with the keenest eyes can struggle to find subtle mistakes buried deep within their own work and, if a mistake slips through, readers and customers can lose confidence in you and your business. As a proofreader, I act as that potential reader or customer, looking at your text with fresh eyes.
