Freelance Proofreader

Add to Favourites Contact Freelancer


Hello, I’m Melanie I am a freelance proofreader based in Cheshire, and I established Argentum Proofreading after a more than 25-year career as a secondary school teacher of Modern Languages.

During my career, as well as my teaching duties, I was involved in the preparation of teaching and assessment materials, schemes of work, reports to parents and other stakeholders, all of which required painstaking attention to detail.

Working in such a profession required me to be well organised, meticulous and methodical, with emphasis on attention to detail and meeting critical deadlines – all essential skills for proofreading.

As an Entry Level Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading I am bound by their code of practice ensuring editorial excellence, so you can be assured that my work is of the highest standard.

I proofread texts of any length in the fields of education, language, translations between French or Spanish and English, travel, the outdoors – rock climbing, mountaineering, skiing, hillwalking, wilderness, camping – guidebooks, memoirs. I also work for students proofreading dissertations and theses, especially non-native English speakers.

I can work on PDFs, Word documents or paper, using commenting and markup tools, or BSI symbols.
