Proofreading Background

As proofreaders, we subject all text to checks for incorrect punctuation, misused words, text that mixes tenses, and other small inconsistencies that detract from the overall work. We proofread the entire text, looking not only for grammatical errors, but also for logical presentation of the subject matter as well as consistency throughout.

As we proofread, we will automatically correct the obvious errors. We can do this by either marking up your hard copy or making the changes directly to your disk file. We will write thoughtful queries to suggest possible re-writes for awkward sentences. If you decide to change your text based on our query, we can even make changes for you.

We also provide web page proofreading. If your web page is already on the Web, we will copy the text and create a corrected HTML file. If your page is in the development stage, then we can assist you by making the corrections before you submit your page.

We draw on our years of experience in reading everything from technical research journals to grade school educational materials. We have read post-graduate dissertations and academic tenure papers, easy-to-read "how to" books and manuals, journal articles that include data-intensive tables, monographs, and newsletters. We have proofread for authors for whom English is their second language, helping those authors to exchange idiomatic "literal translations" for grammatically correct phrases. We are able to read intelligently about any topic, written at any academic level.

Our proofreaders have been called "grid-eyes" because nothing gets past them. Large quality corporations use us as the "last set of eyes" before printing. College students use our services for their resumes. Many stenographers use us for court transcripts. No job is too big or too small.

We accept major U.S. and international credit cards. We issue invoices to most corporate clients if requested. We can bill hourly or by the page. We can invoice biweekly or monthly, it's up to you. Our typical charges are $40 an hour, and $50 an hour for quick turnaround. We can also charge by the page, if that is easier for you.
