How I can help you

After days, months or years of research and writing, it's time to step away and let a fresh pair of eyes take a look. You may have a deadline, no time, or no inclination. I am here to make sure your words are industry-standard and ready to fly.

Proofreading: £25 per hour (2000-3000 words)

Transcription: £50 per audio hour

Transcription of audio, video and text (i.e. handwritten) files

Proofreading and editing services include checking and correcting:

  • references

  • formatting

  •  accuracy and consistency

  •  grammar, spelling and punctuation

  • sentence construction and flow

I work using both Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat DC.

I am experienced in using BSI proofreading marks and working from tailored style guides.
