Perfectly edited

About me Contact me

You only have one chance to make a first impression and the way you communicate can change people’s impressions about you. For this reason, any document you distribute, no matter the content or type, should be well-structured, well-versed and accurate to lend it and you by extension greater credibility and professionalism.

So, if you need your work perfectly edited, proofread or translated at competitive rates, then you have come to the right place. I can help you achieve perfection in your work.

Proofreading

My expert proofreading service is a light form of editing and includes preparing your document for distribution by checking your copy for major errors in terms of grammar, spelling, punctuation and word usage.

This service also includes the following to ensure your work is of the highest quality standards:

  • Establish consistent use of terminology, spelling, capitalisation, italics, hyphenation, abbreviation and numbers.
  • Establish consistency of font size and type.
  • Eliminate unnecessary duplication and repetition.
  • Editing tables, figures and lists.

Unless requested otherwise, I will proofread your document using Microsoft Word’s Track Changes functionality to allow you to see what changes were made for approval.

All documents receive a thorough double proofread (where your document is proofread at least twice), time permitting. It is therefore important to plan adequately for the proofreading phase of your work.

This service is not as time consuming as editing. However, if you require a more thorough check of your document, then consider my editing service.

One of the best editors I've ever worked with. Top quality work delivered. Highly recommended and I'll use her service again.

Editing

My comprehensive editing service includes all of the checks offered with proofreading, but also includes the following additional checks for accuracy:

  • Correct all errors of grammar, spelling, punctuation and word usage.
  • Check for consistency and logical flow of the work.
  • Check for clarity and ease of reading, by clarifying meaning, eliminating jargon, polishing the language and considering the style.
  • Rewrite sentences or phrases where necessary.
  • Check consistency of facts.

Unless requested otherwise, I will edit your document using Microsoft Word’s Track Changes functionality to allow you to see what changes were made for approval.

All documents receive a thorough double edit (where your document is edited at least twice while considering the document as a whole), time permitting. It is therefore important to plan adequately for the editing phase of your work.

Due to the more thorough nature of my editing service, it does take quite a while. Therefore, if time is too limited, then consider my proofreading service.
