Proofreading for Businesses, Websites and Creative Writers
Great, error-free content starts here
Isn't a good spellchecker enough? Have a look at this. "He lay prostate on the floor." You might need to read it twice to see the error, but it's worth it to get the joke. This kind of mistake is funny and would really wreck the mood of a murder mystery novel, but spellchecker software won't spot it.
Even Grammarly won't spot poor formatting, inconsistencies in terms and references, mismatched text and images, and clunky or poorly worded text. For your wording to stand up amongst the best, you need content that is error-free and really speaks to your audience.
Some people find they need proof-editing, a combination of proofreading and editing. This takes your draft text and makes it into something that excels. Proof-editing for websites involves SEO referencing, correcting grammar, spelling and punctuation and working with web designers to get the right look and tone for your website.
I work with you to get the ideal wording for your website, so you can relax and feel proud that it tells your audience exactly what they need to read.

What is proof-editing?
Proof-editing covers not only proofreading tasks (correcting grammar, punctuation and spelling, clarifying meaning, applying house style, ensuring consistency, checking design and layout) but also editing tasks (substantive editing, restructuring and rewriting).
