Proofreading and copy-editing

Having doubts about your spelling, grammar and punctuation?

Congrats! You’ve written a document. But are you sure your spelling, punctuation or phrasing is the best it could be? You’re the type of person who cares about the details. But perhaps English isn’t your first language. Or you’re just so close to it that you can’t see the wood for the trees.

What would help is a swift and reliable fixed-cost proofreading service to ensure your writing is in tip-top shape. So you can be confident that your work reflects your professionalism. That it’s flawless and error-free.

And if you need a more comprehensive editing service? (Like a copy edit or a complete overhaul) just run it past my expert eyeballs. I’ll let you know what’s required to put things right.

Written a book? Have you had it proofread yet?

You’ve worked so hard to get this far. Don’t fall at the final hurdle. A professional freelance editor will check for errors and make improvements in:

  • Spelling, grammar and punctuation
  • Vocabulary and expression
  • Tense, syntax and sentence structure
  • Repetition, redundancy and ambiguity
  • Tone and word choice
  • Style and impact
  • Clarity and succinctness

Lisa made excellent suggestions in relation to style.

‘I am exceptionally pleased with the service provided by Lisa at The Word Nest. I required editing of a scientific report to publication standard at short notice and was able to get this done within time constraints and to a very high standard. Lisa was highly responsive, provided a clear indication of timelines and made excellent suggestions in relation to style. I would be happy to use The Word Nest for future projects.’
