Description

A British native, I am a qualified freelance proofreader and copyeditor who specialises in working with corporate and business texts, and those written by non-native English speakers.

I am a member of the SfEP (Society for Editors and Proofreaders) in the UK, with whom I trained in both disciplines.

Prior to this career, I had a successful ten-year career in the travel industry where I held various senior (director level) commercial focused roles. I therefore have extensive experience and first-hand knowledge of the business world, particularly regarding commercial and strategic functions.

Furthermore, I have significant experience working with texts of all manners and purposes, from marketing copy to top-level proposals and reports, and understand the different styles and grades of language needed for different situations and audiences.

In my freelance capacity I have worked with many different types of text, but specialise in working with businesses – proofreading and editing their corporate materials and documents, marketing copy, web copy, articles, blogs, etc., and also with non-native English speakers – whether businesses or individuals.

Depending on the level of work required, my work covers the following –

  • - spelling and grammatical errors
  • - incorrect word usage and idiomatic expressions
  • - sense checking and clarity
  • - consistency in style, tone, formatting, word usage and spelling (i.e. US vs UK English)
  • - accuracy of references within text (i.e. references to illustrations, tables, indexes, etc)
  • - re-writing – correcting or enhancing obscure, misleading or ambiguous sentences, contradictions, repetitions, etc, whilst always ensuring the author’s voice and style remains intact

I work with preferred style guides when provided, or can suggest and/or create one if not. I can return changes in the format required, but typically work with Word track-changes or PDF mark-up tools. I am also trained in using BSI Proofreading marks for offline copy.
