Errors show that you have weaknesses, while well-written, error-free copy leads to credibility—a key part of reaching your business goals.

If you're unsure which service you need, show me your project, and I'll make a recommendation.

Services

I offer two services for businesses and business professionals.

1. Copyediting
2. Proofreading

Each service can be ordered by itself, but for best results, customers will request copyediting, review my edits, and then request proofreading.

(Need more in-depth or tailored help? Let's discuss your project.)

1. Copyediting

Who Is a Copyedit For?

Choose copyediting if you are happy with your content and message but have concerns over grammar, flow, word choice, transitions, etc.

What I Do

During a copyedit I take a final piece and not only ensure it's grammatically correct but give it that editor's touch so that it's clearer and more effective.

2. Proofreading

Who Is a Proofread For?

Proofreading is for anyone who is ready for the final step, or for those who feel they only need grammatical help/a basic clean-up in the first place.

Why Proofreading Is Important After Editing

While editing, editors mainly target higher-level issues, so we are liable to miss grammatical details and typos. Even though we scan for those while editing as well, proofreading focuses on this.

Also, during a proofread I can make sure you didn't introduce any errors when you reviewed the edit.

I can perform a proofread before and/or after the typesetting stage.
