Academic Writer, Researcher, Ghost Writer with extensive professional experience in proofreading, copy writing and editing. I also have long term experience in transcription, with a typing speed of 80-wpm. I work as a full time freelancer providing meticulous, fast and high standard proofreading and editing services. I specialize in formal and academic writing, particularly in law subjects, although I also have experience in a wide range of other professional and creative writing areas. I have provided both proofreading and transcription services for students, postgraduates, journalists, writers, publishers, charities and professional services. As I am available full time, I can usually offer fast turnarounds when required.
My skills include:
- I use MS Word, with tracked changes and comments.
- correction of spelling, grammar, syntax, punctuation.
- general improvements to overall flow and consistency.
- restructuring of sentences for greater clarity.
- language substitutions to avoid repetition, or to achieve a particular tone/style
- Anglicization of US text.

- transcription of audio to text, including interviews, focus groups, lectures or informal conversation. I am confident with non-native English speakers, regional accents, poor audio quality.
- I can offer multiple verbatim levels, from exactly as spoken, light edited for clarity, to paraphrased/summarised, just let me know your personal requirements.
- strict confidentiality and security measures.
If you require further checks on a document or piece of work, I am happy to oblige. If you would like to query a correction, would like me to check an advised rewrite, or confirm that a recommendation made by myself has been correctly or appropriately executed, I can do this for you free of charge, as long as the request is made within a reasonable time frame after completion of the original work.
One exception to this is new, original content, of notable length and/or not recommended by myself. For example, if you have added a new chapter, section, table, paragraph etc., not as the explicit result of the proofreading. This will be considered ‘new’ work beyond the scope of the original quote and charged accordingly.
