Services

Proofreading

This service is best suited to authors who are satisfied that their work is well written but who require a final, thorough and objective proofread of their work. It will be checked for spelling and punctuation errors, correct capitalisation, good grammar and consistency of language/punctuation throughout the work.*

Price is charged per 1,000 words following quotation. Please note that a rate per hour may apply where sections of text demand extra time (e.g. references, bibliographies, tables) or where it is difficult to assess how long the work might take.

Editing

Editing involves the implementation of more significant changes. These may be necessary because the work requires improvement beyond proofreading, needs to be restructured to serve a different purpose to that originally intended or needs to meet the specific requirements of a publisher. This service may also be useful to authors who do not have time to polish their work to the required standard or who would like an objective editor to enhance their work.*

*Please note that all work will be carried out in an ethical manner. For example, it would be considered unethical to carry out a substantive/developmental edit to improve the standard of work written for the purposes of academic assessment. Clients whose work is to be submitted for academic assessment will be required to read and sign an agreement document: Student Agreement 

Price is charged per 1,000 words following quotation. Please note that a rate per hour may apply where sections of text demand extra time (e.g. references, bibliographies, tables) or where it is difficult to assess how long the work might take.

Editing for Publishers

I have experience of working with Styles in Word and tags/codes, and can work to the brief of publishers preparing academic works including textbooks and journal articles, providing both copy-editing and developmental editing services.

Editing for writers whose first language is not English 

I have experience of editing texts written by those for whom English is a second (or third or fourth!) language and I welcome enquiries about this service.

Transcription

I can transcribe audio recordings of presentations and interviews, including focus group interviews.

Please contact me for a quotation based on your requirements. The provision of an accurate quotation is easier if you can provide a sample of the work to be proofread/edited.
