Are you sure your written material is as good as it should be? If you’re not, I can lend a hand.
My editing and proofreading services can boost the quality and impact value of business documents, marketing content and much more.
I can work with Word and PDF documents. I can edit or proofread material in most subjects, but my specialisms are IT, business, sport (particularly football and cricket) and rock music.
✍ What I can do for you
If you’re involved in running a company, my business editing service can give its written material a professional sheen, so that it will get your message across clearly and make a strong impression on your customers and prospects. This means doing some or all of the following, depending on your needs:
- Making sure your writing is clear, concise, readable and suited to your target audience
- Ensuring it follows a required style
- Fixing errors and inconsistencies in spelling, grammar and punctuation
- Reshaping it into plain English
I also provide copy-editing and proofreading services to publishers, and to other organisations who produce publications such as brochures, newsletters and client magazines.
Could your organisation benefit from using a style guide, to help make sure your written material has a consistent ‘look and feel’? I can develop one for you. If you already have one, I can review it and suggest enhancements.
My fees are competitive, and roughly in line with those typically charged by trained UK editorial professionals. I usually quote a fixed fee for each job, according to the type of content and the work that’s needed. I also can work for an hourly rate when that would be more suitable.
✅ What I’ve done
My main customers in recent years have been:
- Publishing companies – including academic and mainstream non-fiction
- Other businesses – including IT consultancy, marketing, business-to-business communications
💼 My background
I’ve had extensive training in editorial work, including the Publishing Training Centre’s Basic Proofreading and Copy-editing courses (both passed with Merit) and a number of courses provided by the former Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP – now the CIEP).
Before taking this up full-time in 2013, I had a 26-year career in information technology as an analyst, developer, project manager and team leader, in the transport, financial services, government, telecoms and retail sectors.
