Let me be your fresh pair of eyes and help you to make sure that your written content is free from spelling mistakes, typos, grammatical errors and poor punctuation.
In this day and age, many people seem to think that the above doesn’t matter, but it is still important to get your message across clearly and to set yourself apart from the competition, whether that is a business rival or another author on the Kindle best-sellers lists.
My name is Lindsay Corten and I am a proofreader and copy-editor, working with business-related written content, as well as in the publishing industry and academia.
Whether you represent a business that wishes to present a professional image to its potential and existing customers (or even its own staff), or are an author who has written their next (or first) masterpiece, I can help you by providing a service that will help to stop your writing standing out for the wrong reasons!
I can assist you with many types of written content, including:
• Books (fiction and non-fiction)
• Brochures/marketing materials
• Website content
• Training manuals
• Policies and procedures
• Press releases
• Business requirements documents
• Product labels
• Restaurant menus
• CVs/cover letters for job applications
• Any other type of document you can think of!
The above list is not exhaustive, so you are welcome to contact me for a no-obligation quotation if you have some other type of written content that you would like me to copy-edit or proofread for you.
I am happy to work across a wide range of subjects, and I am comfortable working with quite technical material.
I am able to work with a range of document formats, including MS Word, MS PowerPoint, MS Excel, PDF, emailed text or even good old-fashioned paper. I am
also able to provide corrections in both layman’s terms or in BSI 2005 standard proofreading symbols.
Please visit my website for full details of my services, pricing and terms and conditions (http://www.corteneditorial.co.uk/).
I work hard to provide all of my clients with a friendly, professional and high-quality service at a fair price; I recognise the importance of good customer service, and open and honest communication. Please feel free to visit my website to read the testimonials I have received from my clients, but here are some recent ones:
Looking for someone professional and reliable to proofread my book, I scoured the Internet, as you do! I came across Corten Editorial and phoned Lindsay. Having spoken to her, I knew she would not disappoint! I am very happy with the work she did for me and she went the extra mile in suggesting some really useful changes. I am actually much more confident of my book after the proofreading. I would recommend Corten Editorial! – Nitin Mehta MBE
What can I say – you’re worth your weight in gold! Thank you so much. – Nikki Raine, Marvellous Mixes
Like all businesses, mine is such that small slips of the pen or an errant strike on the keyboard are all too probable. At best, such mistakes, when they occur, can be embarrassing. Unrectified, they could lead to ruinously expensive arguments. When prospective clients spot such errors, their confidence in one diminishes, sometimes resulting in loss of business. I needed someone who could spot the errors before I broadcast them. I needed someone who was technically competent. I needed someone who was reliable. Lindsay fits the bill perfectly. If you have ever heard the saying ‘it’s hard to spot one’s mistakes’, believe me, it’s true. Working with Lindsay gives me the confidence every professional needs in his finished work. I would recommend her without qualification or hesitation. – Ade Oduyemi, Maximum Inheritance Specialists
I look forward to hearing from you!
