Proofreading

Proofreading

As creative passes between account manager, designer and client, copy errors can easily be introduced – and missed…

A proofreader doesn’t just correct your grammar

A good proofreader will also check your copy against your style guide or brand guidelines to ensure consistency throughout, sense-check your website or brochure, make sure that links and images work and make suggestions for page and link titles that are logical and relevant to your audience.

Proofreading is one of the final stages of any project. It’s also, arguably, one of the most important.

“Kate has been working on our key client work for a number of years, and has become familiar with their different styles and techniques. She has great attention to detail and is consistent in her approach. It is a pleasure to work with her.” Sarah Powell, DMS Agency

£25.00 per hour

That’s all it costs to get a pair of eagle eyes to proofread your work – money well spent when you take into account the possibility of lost business, reprint costs and a bad image.

Don’t give potential customers a bad impression of your company by making stupid mistakes – like using ‘less’ instead of ‘fewer’. Or making merry with the greengrocer’s apostrophe. (Or should that be greengrocers’….?)
