Proofreading

What is it?

Proofreading is the final stage your work goes through, whether it is a manuscript, brochure, CV, letter, award application, website or dissertation before it goes to print or live online.

 

It’s the last step in making sure your work looks and reads just as you intended.

What I can do for you

I look for errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation. I also look at the consistency in usage and presentation, as well as any layout and stylistic errors. I check headings, page numbers, tables, and illustrations in addition to the main body of the text.

It includes things like:

Grammar

 Spelling

 Punctuation

 Capitalisation

 Sentence structure

 Word choice

 Academic style

 Academic tone

 Repetition

 Verb tense

 Correct use of UK English
