Anju Okhandiar. Chartered Linguist

Editorial Services

a freelance consultant

I offer proofreading, copy-editing, revision, Power-Point presentation and application of House Style Guides. With over 20 years of experience in this field, I invite you to work directly with me.

I specialise in EAL (English as an Additional Language) texts, while my preferred subject areas are German, Hindi, Linguistics, Philology and Literary writing (fiction, including children’s fiction).

I will:

  • Check and correct errors in spelling, punctuation to fix grammatical mistakes, as well as verify accuracy of page numbers, headings and captions

  • Read original text copies against typeset proofs to catch typos

  • Check images, charts, tables to ensure they are precise and properly aligned

  • Address formatting issues and other inconsistencies in the layout of a text, and adjust variations in style to ensure a professional final presentation

  • Work on Stylistics, including organising, condensing, modifying, and adapting texts with an aim to producing an accurate piece of work

I work in agreement with client's House Style upon request. I prefer to work on paper, however, I work with equal ease on-screen, using Word with Track Changes, Perfect IT or by marking up PDFs with BSI (British Standards Institution) proofreading marks.

Please contact me to discuss your editorial requirements.
