Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $22

I'm a native English speaker with qualifications in Applied Linguistics and many years' experience working with language. I am a professional wordsmith, editor and proofreader. My focus is your focus: what does your audience need from your documents? My practical experience means I know the rules of language, but also know when to break them. I work with my clients to create great documents. Editing is conversation, not a lecture with a red pen.

Service Description

Proofreading - checking grammar, spelling and layout of your document. Does not include structural editing or rewording of text - for this you will need the editing service. Proofreading is the last step before publication.

Editing - checking grammar, spelling, layout, structure, form, style, tone and consistency. Editing is one step in the final stages of the drafting process. e.g. you might ask to have your report edited before it is sent to others for review. Once the others have made their changes a final proofread would be conducted.

Writing - writing or re-writing business related text. Give me the information and I will shape it into a report for you. Examples of work I have done: used a collection of documents created over years by different employees to create a manual - drawing together the content and ensuring similar style and tone.
