Proofreading

As a professional proofreader, I will thoroughly review your text in its final layout by:

  • correcting grammar, spelling and punctuation
  • checking consistency of style (e.g. -ise or -ize spelling, names, capital letters)
  • checking consistency of layout (e.g. headings, spacing, paragraphs)
  • checking chapter headings against the table of contents
  • checking the position of tables and illustrations and that their captions match with the text
  • checking cross-references
  • querying repetitive, contradictory, ambiguous or unclear text
  • highlighting anything that requires further action.

Depending on your requirements, I can proofread on hard copy using BSI proof-correction marks, or on screen using Track Changes in Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat DC commenting tools for marking up PDFs.
