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).
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.
