For DTP files, texts going to be published, or other texts which are very important to you or to your organisation, another pair of well trained eyes may be very useful. During proofreading, I examine your text for the following aspects:

  • Orthography
  • Punctuation
  • Grammar
  • Hyphenation

In addition, I look for the following in your text:

  • Style
  • Contradictions
  • Consistency
  • Repetitions
  • Interruptions to the reading flow
  • Formulations which are difficult to understand

Please note: This is specifically not proofreading for content. I do not correct errors in content or meaning which may occur. However, if I note such an error while proofreading, I will obviously inform you of it.

If you just want an examination of orthography, punctuation, grammar, and hyphenation, then text correction is what you need. You will find more about correction here.
