Hire a proofreader for error-free documents and content – aim for nothing less!
Make sure everything you send out is free from typos, grammatical errors, formatting fails and clunky sentence structure. That goes for promotional material, customer letters, direct marketing, web content and so on. As a proofreader, I’ll make sure your documents consistently look professional in print and online.
I know what you’re thinking. You’ve checked through your brochure copy or your website content and you can’t find any mistakes, right? Take another look. Whoa! Because to a proofreader, there’s a lot going on.
Spelling: Computer spell checks won’t pick up missing words, or words that are spelt correctly in the wrong context. And if you’ve looked at something a hundred times, you’ll still overlook the simplest of typos. You really need a fresh pair of eyes.
Punctuation: Those commas, semicolons, full stops, apostrophes, hyphens and dashes often end up in the wrong place.
Formatting and style: Spacing between lines and after full-stops, heading sizes, bulleted lists, font size – these often stray from the agreed style and need to be brought back into line.
Branding: Is your branding consistent throughout your marketing material? A proofreader will make sure everything follows your company style.
Clunky sentence structure: If the sentence isn’t clear and can be said more simply, I’ll let you know. Sometimes a few minor tweaks can make a huge difference to clarity.
Tables, graphs and diagrams: If they’re not labelled correctly, they won’t be understood and readers won’t waste their time trying.
Page numbering and contents: It’s surprising how often the page numbering doesn’t align with contents pages. A good proofreader checks everything!
APA citations and referencing: It’s so easy to get these wrong, but every citation and reference needs to follow precise rules every time.
