PROOFREADING | EDITING | WRITING
Making your words count
"Anne, thank you so much – you have been such a great help writing my book. Your clear understanding of the English language gained over many years as a professional editor, freelance writer and proofreader has proved invaluable – I am not sure how I could have done it without you."
– P J Griffiths, author The Milk of Human Kindness
Think of proofreading as the final tidy-up before your work goes 'live'; most of the groundwork will already have been done. A proofreader checks for accuracy and consistency – and corrects grammar, spelling and typographical errors.
Copy editing digs a lot deeper. A copy-editor works with the raw 'copy' – anything from a CV to a novel – and makes it fit to publish. Ambiguities, legal issues, grammar, syntax, spelling and more are dealt with at this stage.
