"A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver." Let me help you make your words worth their weight in gold. This is where my forte lies, what I'm excellent at and why you need me.

Proofreading skills can include knowing the difference between there, their and they're, spotting a simple typo that leaves you feeling impotent instead of important or it could even mean the ability to use the right word at the right time ........ but that's why you need me - a second pair of eyes adept at spotting the errors and ensuring...

Service Description

I have more than 20 years experience working as a proofreader and as a secretary. My first job was with an auditing firm where I learned the importance of neatness and accuracy and this has remained with me.

I like things to be neat and tidy and enjoy the challenge of formatting documents and spreadsheets as well as proofreading and editing them to make them perfect in every way.

In my printing and sign business my main focus is proofreading and editing manuscripts as well as advertising materials for clients.

I have completed a number of secretarial and computing courses and have worked with many different word processing programs such as Word Perfect, Word, Word Star, Multimate and Wordpad to name a few. I have used Quattro Pro and Microsoft Excel extensively in making spreadsheets, and have experience with transcribing documents, reports and phone calls.

I look forward to working with you should you find my skills meet your requirements for completing your project on time and to specification.

Just one example of feedback I have received:

“I can't say enough about the wonderful experience I had w/ Words_Worth. Being brand new to elance, she not only delivered a quality project prior to the due date, she also helped to walk me through elance's workflow and patiently answered my many questions. It's rare to see a contract vendor exceed expectations in every facet....this is exactly what Words_Worth did.”
