Whatever the content of your document, book, pamphlet, essay, thesis or marketing pitch I can proofread it for you and help you avoid making the wrong impression. A qualified librarian with a BA in Latin/Classical Civilisations and an MBA, I became a proofreader as attention to detail and ensuring accuracy has been a large element of all the different jobs I have done over the years.

Some clients will prefer to supply their own house style document. Typically this would include preferences on items like how to write dates and times, abbreviations and technical terms. If a client does not have a style document this can be compiled as part of the proofreading process to ensure consistency.

A proofreader will look at the layout of a document and check for design and typography, headings, tables and figures, captions and illustrations, headers and footers and page numbering. Is the correct typeface used? Are the paragraphs consistently indented or full out? Are any tables, figures or illustrations present and presented consistently?

A document will be checked for internal consistency and ambiguity. Are numbered lists, tables and figures complete and correct? Cross-references and contents lists will be checked to ensure they match the corresponding chapter or section headings in the body of the document. Any unclear meaning will be flagged. Corrections are only marked if the proofreader is certain. Otherwise a query will be raised with the client.
