Proofreading

25


25 per unit Virtual OK

I will proofread your 250 word/page word or google doc and leave comments in markup. Let me know if you have a different preferred format but i don't have a paid adobe product so i can't show markups in the adobe format, only in gdocs. You can likely just send me a proposal and the document and we'll go from there unless you have any particular requests. We can do a proposal proportionally based on the length of the document.

I will do everything I can but let me know if you have particular concerns for punctuation, clarity, logic, accessiblity or brevity.

It helps to know the following:
Audience
Purpose
Deadline
Format
Subject Area
Type of Text
Length (words/characters)

I generally follow the Chicago Manual of Style.

If your text needs deeper reworking of the text, more in the copy editing realm, or is a rush job, we should talk about additional simbi or escalating to someone else. Let me know if you have other questions. Thanks.

I am the worst. Marty was there ready. He sent me materials and was communicative from the first message when I proposed a deal. I lost track of time ...at work and missed our appointment. I hope he will give me another chance and I’m completing this deal because he did it was my fault that I didn’t show up. Sorry about that! show more
