What I offer


I offer a friendly, flexible and professional proofreading service for projects big and small.

 

I work with publishers, businesses, organisations and individuals around the world, helping clients to achieve accuracy, consistency and clarity in their text. My clients’ requirements are paramount and I work to ensure that their expectations are not only met, but also exceeded.

What I can do for you

 

I would be delighted to help you polish and improve your text, in order to maximise its impact upon your readers. I can carry out a light proofread or a more intensive level of editing, and I can help you decide the best way forward in order that the text fulfils its purpose. I have edited a vast range of projects, including: 

  • books

  • reports

  • website content

  • marketing communications/brochures/packaging

  • training/education manuals, exam and course materials

  • law reports 

  • legal articles

  • annual reports/auditors reports

  • blog posts and newsletters

  • magazines

  • translated works 

  • experts' reports and medico-legal reports.

 

While my specialist area is law, I also work in the humanities, literature, travel, art/art history, culture, architecture, war history, psychology, business, cinema, design, fashion, and commercial property – and many other areas.
