Editing and proofreading services
First impressions count and therefore you shouldn't underestimate the negative impact small mistakes or poorly structured wording can have on your business.
I have a good eye for spelling and grammar errors, so as a freelance proofreader and editor I will happily review any text you’ve prepared in-house to make sure your content presents a compelling story or argument to your readers and flows well without any embarrassing mistakes, which are all too easy to make when you've read your own words a thousand times and your eyes have glazed over.
Furthermore, as a native English writer, I can review any copy that has been translated into English from another language to check the content reads well for a native English-speaking audience. Because, trust me, online translation services rarely (if ever) deliver copy with the correct phrasing, terminology and rhythm, and bad translations can be a huge turn-off for potential clients.
Translated or not, I will review the structure of your text to ensure it's expertly tailored to your audience, thus making your business appear more attractive and trustworthy. Additionally, I'll make sure copy adheres to your company style guide if you have one (or I can help you create one).
I also have experience as a magazine and online editor, so can drive the overall process of planning, commissioning and editing content for your publications.
