Proofreading & Editing

We can offer proofreading and editing services in a number of areas including newspaper and magazine articles, webpages, corporate literature, business and marketing flyers, directories, catalogues and online publications.  We can also rewrite articles for clarity and improvement of word choice, flow and syntax.

Nicolette is a qualified native (UK) English proofreader and copy editor. Combining an editorial eye with accuracy you can be assured of a professional, impactful end product that will help you to stand out from the competition.

Working mainly on-screen using annotations either in PDF or using track changes in Word documents proofreading projects include checking for the following:

  • Spelling/typos
  • Extra words/double words
  • Extra line spaces
  • Punctuation
  • Grammatical, typographical and style errors
  • Word usage
  • Line-break hyphenation
  • Page breaks
  • Tables and figures (proofreading only – no formatting)
  • Overall consistency

Light and medium editing services are also available to assist with the rewriting of articles for clarity, to improve word choice, flow and syntax for your designated audience. In some instances a mix of proofreading and editing is required – often referred to as proof-editing.

Since no two projects are exactly alike the specifics will be determined through initial discussions and will always take into account the author’s wishes and any house style considerations. If you have any questions about our services please feel free to call or message and we will be happy to discuss your particular project with you.
