Proofreading

Proofreading’s one of those things it’s easy to overlook. You’ve spent hours on the design of your website, or the wording for your report, and to you, it looks great. It reads beautifully. You’ve read it several times yourself.

The problem is that you don’t see your mistakes: your brain sees what it wants to see. It is very, very difficult to proofread your own work. I can help you make sure your work reads as well as possible.

What do I proofread?
• articles
• books
• pre-qualification questionnaires (PQQs)
• submissions
• tenders
• websites.
