Whether you’re an academic, a student, an author, a business or producing copy for whatever reason, having it properly copyedited and proofread, ensuring spelling, punctuation, grammar and layout are correct, will help it to be the best it can be.
I copyedit and proofread in Word (using Track Changes), on PDFs or on hard copy using BSI marks and pride myself on working to deadlines and on my communication with clients.
My experience includes: undergraduate/postgraduate essays/theses; academic journal articles; various novels; several non-fiction books; business documents; website content; local newsletter articles. I often proofread work by non-native English speakers and I also proofread for dyslexic students.
I am a professional member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading with an entry on their Directory. I adhere to the CIEP’s Code of Practice, am a member of the CIEP’s local Edinburgh group and a member of the Edinburgh Editors Network.
