Copyediting

Whether you’re producing an academic research report with multiple authors, a lifestyle magazine, a work of fiction or an exhibition catalogue, I will ensure your text flows well, is perfectly structured and reads as convincingly as possible for its intended audience. I can translate any form of jargon into plain English and adapt copy for multiple recipients. As a magazine subeditor I am also highly experienced in creating captivating headlines, standfirsts, pullquotes and image captions.

  • I will make your text clear, concise and compelling.
  • I will correct grammar, spelling, punctuation and consistency, ensuring your house style is adhered to or creating a style sheet if you don’t already have one.
  • I will check every name, date and reference to ensure nothing erroneous slips through the net.

Proofreading

I have proofread magazines, illustrated books, websites, academic theses and reports, grant proposals and works of fiction. I can check final proofs before publication, in any format. I am also experienced in dealing with image captions, credits and copyright.

Editing non-native English

I am highly experienced with editing non-native English. I have worked with numerous texts that have been translated to English and need rewriting/editing, as well as writers using English as a second language who need help with conveying their ideas in natural-sounding prose that flows convincingly.
