services for publishers

I provide proofreading services to publishers and work accurately to brief, meeting deadlines in a timely manner. Having trained with the Publishing Training Centre, I can work on paper or PDF with BSI symbols, or using Track Changes in Microsoft Word.

What do I check?

  • spelling, punctuation and grammar
  • consistency in style, spelling, typography, layout and content
  • page numbers and headings
  • if the content flows and is logically arranged
  • if there are any confusing line or word breaks
  • if illustrations, captions, labels, chapter titles, indexes, cross-references, etc. correspond with each other and with the text

Specialist areas

I work on a wide variety of content in all fields, fiction and non-fiction but the following fields are particularly within my area of expertise:

  • Humanities/social sciences
  • ESL/TEFL/English language teaching
  • linguistics
  • teacher education
  • adult education
  • hobbies: sewing, crafts, yoga, outdoor activities.
