What you get with this Offer

You’ve had a great idea, you’ve put it into words and you want to go public, but you’re left wondering if it could be a little better, a bit more polished, a little easier to read. You need a copy-editor.

A copy editor takes your copy and ready’s it for publishing, conducting the initial proofread and ensuring your writing is consistent, accurate and grammatically correct, as well as being stylistically appropriate. Following a good copy-edit, your work will flow well and be easy and enjoyable to read.

Readability and quality are particularly important if you’re writing for SEO purposes. Google’s latest algorithms (released 2019) take writing quality into account in page rankings. Having your work copy-edited means bumping your content up the search results.

I am a proofreader, editor and writer with five years' experience and a 1st class degree from the University of Cambridge. I have copyedited a wide range of material: blog posts, print articles, business plans, proposals, presentations, company handbooks. Whatever your project, I can help bring out the best in it.

This copyediting service includes:

- A thorough proof of your work by a native English speaker
- All edits marked in the Track-Changes feature of MS Word (you will be able to see and review all changes and comments)
- Correction of grammar, punctuation, spelling, syntax and typos
- Replacing awkward, non-native word use with fluent-sounding alternatives
- Ensuring your consistent use of USA / British English
AND the following:
- Re-writing of non-native sentences to read as fluent
- Re-structuring paragraphs for better flow
- Comments regarding the consistency of information, style and tone
- Substituting repetitive/uncommon words with appropriate alternatives
- Ensuring the consistency of document formatting
- Checking the accuracy of information

This is a 1-day service. I can complete copyedits of up to 5,000 words in three days and up to 30,000 words within five days. If you require a faster turnaround, please message me before purchasing this offer.
