Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading

Hello. Thanks for stopping by.

Errors. Typos. Grammatical mitsakes. Misspelt names. They’re a nightmare. Diminishing your credibility, putting off customers and turning away potential employees. But you knew that already, right? That’s why you’re here. (Either that or you typed in the wrong URL.)

 

They can also be pesky little things and very tricky to spot. Did you see the one above for example? If I'm honest, that was quite an easy one to spot too.

 

So, whether you’re looking for a basic proofread to pick up those typos, spelling and punctuation errors or a deeper line-by-line proofread with copyediting support, Proofcopy can help.

About Proofcopy

21616523_845507205607622_167879903186990

My name is Martha and with over 25 years’ experience working in creative advertising agencies, there aren’t many things I haven’t been asked to copyedit or proof during my career. 

 

I also have a sizeable track record for supporting family and friends with their documents and correspondence – be it to challenge a parking ticket, complain to a service provider, or update a CV.

 

Ultimately, it’s all about presenting yourself in the best light possible and ensuring your audience takes you seriously.

4 steps to flawless copy

1

Complete the Contact Me form below or email:

martha@proofcopy.co.uk

outlining your requirements (for example, proofread only or proofread and copyedit and the type of document).

Please include a word count and your expectations in regards to delivery timescales.

2

Once your request has been sent, I will acknowledge receipt of your request within 2 hours and follow up with additional questions or an initial quote within 4 hours.

If you need a quote quickly, please just mark your email as "urgent" or give me a call to discuss.

3

When you have signed off the cost, please confirm your approval in writing (supplying a purchase order as necessary) and attach your document with any additional instructions. If the scope of work changes dramatically, I will always re-quote and ask for sign-off before undertaking any additional work.

4

On completion, I will provide you with a Microsoft Word document containing tracked changes, as well as a clean version with all changes accepted. If you have a PDF document, I will annotate the corrections and return to you. For PowerPoint, I will add my recommendations as comments for you to review.
