Magazine publishers

I specialise in proofreading magazines, from in-flight to fashion, design, business and entrepreneurial. I recognise that magazines require a particular approach given the number and variety of articles, headings, captions, pullquotes, running headers, pictures, authors, fonts and styles.

 

I am adept at standardising into UK/US English (spelling, vocabulary and punctuation) and am able to pay careful attention to small but important aspects of style such as currency representation, capitalisation and abbreviations. I can mark up text to accommodate a specific house style (for example bold highlighting or number conventions) and I will address consistency of place and contributor names. I can also check validity of web links if your magazine is to be issued online.
