Proofreading & Editing Services
We all want to be able to convey our ideas clearly.
The best writing, the kind you see in books, academic journals, scientific papers, books, screenplays, etc. is a team effort. It’s difficult to write clearly, succinctly, and precisely. So writers routinely work with copy editors and proofreaders to perfect their work.
Types of Documents
Ensure your journal article is free of grammatical errors before it’s reviewed by your academic peers.
Regardless of the academic field, don’t suffer the embarrassment of submitting an academic essay with spelling errors.
A poorly written and formatted dissertation proposal is more likely to get rejected.
Thesis / Dissertations
A dissertation is a document that is too important to be riddled with grammar mistakes.
Manuscripts / Screenplays
Don’t let errors in spelling ruin a good plot line and turn your scripts into a punchline.
Whatever the matter, even personal documents should be written correctly and in a consistent format.
Punctuation errors and poor sentence structures will send potential investors running scared.
Don’t let common mistakes in grammar and spelling be what sinks your hypothesis.
There are two main types of copyediting, substantive and mechanical, and it’s important to understand the differences. Substantive editing entails making large structural changes to the document as a whole and is less concerned with details. That is not the type of service I provide.
I focus on mechanical editing which encompasses both copy editing and proofreading. The focus is on the final details and polish to really make your document stand out and shine. During the copy-editing service we’ll be working together through:
- Corrections to spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
- Adjusting sentences for clarity
- Addressing inconsistencies in tone, formatting, style, etc.
- Optimizing word choice
- Ensuring the document adheres to the chosen style guide or publishing requirements
Proofreading services entail putting the final touches on a writing piece. This generally occurs after a document has been through the copy-editing phase. It is an essential part of the writing process to ensure that the quality is at its best, there are no lingering mistakes, and that spelling and grammar are perfect. These errors may seem like details, but will impact legibility and enough of them can even call into question the credibility of the document. Proofreading ensures your document meets the high standards your readers deserve.
During the proofreading service we’ll be working together through:
- Punctuation, grammar, spelling, and capitalization errors
- Formatting and font issues
- Inconsistencies in the document relating to any of the above
