Editing and Proofreading

You know what you want to say, you just need help with the presentation. Even great writers can have problems with poor or inappropriate word choices; awkward or convoluted sentence structures; or occasional lapses into bad grammar, creative spelling, or incorrect punctuation. Using the spell checker tool included with your software is a terrific start toward creating a client-ready document, but it certainly won’t help you catch everything. For example, it won’t differentiate between to, too, and two; merry, marry, and Mary; weather and whether; caret, carat, and carrot; or witch and which. Only a human reader can help you with that! Typos and grammatical errors can discredit your message and spoil your professional image. Mistakes can cost you time, money, and clients. You need a professional editor or proofreader on your side, one whose only job is to look for errors and to make your work shine. Hiring an independent freelance editor has never been more important than in this age of self-publishing. If you do not have an in-house staff to handle your proofreading and editing jobs, our freelance proofreaders and editors can help.
