Proofreading and Editing

My goal is to capture your readers' attention and maintain it. To this end, I employ a process of steps; each step involves re-reading the assignment and examining specific elements so that nothing slips through the cracks. My method includes:

Step 1: Readability.

My first priority is to ensure you've accurately expressed what you want to communicate in a manner that flows. Readability relies heavily on grammar, spelling, and punctuation, which I'll check in this first stage. Incorrect grammar makes reading challenging at best and unintelligible at worst. I'll also help make your work as succinct as possible, as readers traditionally dislike too much text and may only skim the content or skip it altogether.

Step 2: Consistency.

I'll look for instances, such as words that are abbreviated in some places but not others, and I'll make sure the tone doesn't deviate (e.g., are there contractions included that convey a more casual tone than you'd prefer?).

Step 3: Format.

The format will be uniform throughout and will make the content more engaging. Important information will get highlighted so it doesn't get lost amid the other text.

Step 4: Final read.

Keeping steps 1-4 in mind, I'll do one final read-through.

Your work will be returned to you in its best form, and I'll do it quickly.

I've been editing and proofreading for companies throughout the United States for more than 25 years. I've worked with a diverse clientele in an assortment of industries, including academia, biotech, construction, insurance, and patent law.

And I'd love to work with you.
