Proofreading

Sometimes, you need a fresh pair of eyes to see what you’ve missed. That’s where I come in—I offer proofreading services, so no typos, mistakes or wonky sentences mar your work.

What does a proofreader do?

Proofreading involves the obvious correcting spelling and grammar mistakes, but also checking syntax and sentence structure. In a more in-depth proofreading task, I can also correct methodological or story structure issues according to the required format or desired effect.

Proofreading is also a service that is easily combined with the Translation or Narrative Consulting services I offer. Find out more about pricing here!

Proofreading FAQ

What languages do you offer proofreading services in?

As English and French are both my native languages and as I am proficient in both when it comes to writing, I can work on either language for the same price.

What texts do you proofread?

I can work on a wide range of texts, including:

- Resumes and cover letters

- Academic texts: dissertations, abstracts, articles, publications, etc.

- Fiction, creative writing and non-fiction

- Scripts and dialogue for a video game, play, short or film

And many more! Do not hesitate to submit your text and ask for a free quote, or shoot me an email if you have questions.

How do you go about it?

I usually read the whole text first without editing anything.

I then read another time correcting sentence structure and writing style using Markup on Microsoft Word, or by writing what I've corrected in a different color.

Lastly, I correct spelling, grammar, and typography with the help of a software (Antidote 11) before a final format and layout check.

I can then move on to either translating or narrative consulting, as required.
