Proofreading

Poorly written material reflects badly on us. For example, an accountant claiming to be a member of the Association of Charted Certified Accountants might find potential clients put off by the spelling error (it should be Chartered, not Charted). If they can get that wrong, then what other errors might be made by someone in a job where accuracy is vital? In our online age, with so much choice available, people can all too often go elsewhere if what they are reading doesn’t make sense. So take time to get it right – or find someone who will. If your skills and energy are better used doing other things, then let me check your online and/or printed texts. An ex-librarian and an avid reader, I have a feeling for how the written word should look and am good at spotting errors on both page and screen. The chances are that I can improve on what you’ve written, whether by correcting spelling and grammar or by helping you express your messages more succinctly. Give me access to your content management system (CMS) and I can make changes direct; alternatively, I can provide amended texts as M/S Word or PDF files. I am a member of The Society for Editors and Proofreaders – a professional body for people who strive to make text accurate and readable.
