Service Description

Proofreading
Your materials will be professionally and rigorously proofread with suggested changes highlighted in Microsoft Word using the “Track Changes” feature. (Other options available if you prefer, just ask.) In addition to proofreading, you will benefit from my 15 years of experience as an ISO/AS9100 Auditor and Technical Writer.

Your materials will be proofed not only for spelling and grammatical errors, but also with respect to context. Your product will surely communicate the message you desire, and be free of mistakes.
--------------------------------

Editing
Your written materials will be clearly and efficiently edited. By using Microsoft Word’s “Track Changes” feature (other options available), you are able to quickly and easily identify and accept proposed changes. I will also match your desired tone; conversational, web content, business, academic, or a combination of those. My deep knowledge of engineering means you will get excellent contextual (does it make sense) editing as well, avoiding any embarrassing inaccuracies regarding your subject matter.

During your assignment I will provide you with intermediate drafts to make sure you are getting precisely the results you want.
--------------------------------

Writing
Your user manuals, documents, articles and blogs will be engaging, concise and informative. They will be written in ‘your’ voice to reflect your unique point of view, compelling or telling, alive and interesting.

During your...
