Service Description

Having a professional proofreader to look over your work will ensure that there are no embarrassing errors to glare out at readers. It's so very easy to become overly familiar with your own work, especially after a multitude of drafts. Spellcheckers can only do so much!

I can offer a fully comprehensive editing and proofreading service to professional standards, having worked in the trade for many years. I am eagle-eyed when it comes to mistakes of any sort, be they complex or simple spelling mistakes.

Having only just joined Elance, I don't have a lot of recommendations just yet - although there are examples of previous work in my portfolio.
