proofreading and copyediting
What sort of documents do you accept for editing or proofing?
I edit and proof a wide range of text-based work including theses, journal articles, tender proposals, job applications, promotional material, resumes, website text or corporate publications including annual reports.
How do I ask for a quote? And if I don’t want to go ahead with the job, is that OK?
Email me at email@example.com and attach your document or a sample of it. I endeavour to respond to all requests within two business days. There is no obligation to proceed with the job after you receive a quote.
Will you make major changes to my work?
Your ‘voice’ or style will not be altered. Changes will only be made to grammar, consistency, punctuation and spelling mistakes. I also look at the structure and flow of written work, and may recommend more substantial changes in the notes which will be sent back to you separately so you can choose whether or not to include them. When editing a thesis, all changes are restricted to copyediting and proofreading.
Do you make any changes to my original document?
Work will be completed on a copy of your document. Both the original and the edited copy will be sent back to you.
Can you make any guarantees about my work after you have edited it?
No, I can’t guarantee you will get the job, be accepted by a publisher, or see an increase in your customer base. UwriteIedit guarantees your work will be free of spelling errors and grammatical mistakes which will improve the likelihood of a positive end result.
Do you offer discounts?
Discounts will be offered for up-front payment. Registered charities will also receive a 10 per cent discount.
Do you accept documents in hard and soft copy?
The majority of my clients prefer to work with soft copy Word, emailed to me. However, if you are only able to operate in hard copy, please contact me to discuss your options.
