Proofreading never looked so good

My services are separated into proofreading and proof-editing. You might not be sure what your document needs – and that’s OK! Hopefully this will make it clearer.


Let’s imagine you’ve written a page of content for a website, a sales page or an article perhaps. You’ve read it once, twice, three times in an effort to catch any typos or missing words. By the time you’ve read it a fourth time, you’ve broken into a sweat. You know getting it right really matters.

You feel it’s in good shape and send it to print, and then someone points out a couple of random capital letters or the glaring misspelling in the last sentence. How can you have missed that?!

You’ll be relieved to know it’s not you.

Why? You have a version in your head of what you want to say and how it will look, but the version on the page doesn’t always correspond. That’s because you’re focused on the idea, the story, the whys and the whens.

You may be trying to convey a complex idea or a viewpoint that will be sealed and delivered with a damning final paragraph.

Your client might turn a blind eye to the odd mistake, but what if there are lots? You don’t want them feeling like they’ve invested in a rushed job.

Maybe you’re writing a book. To give your readers a page turner, their focus needs to be on the strength of your writing, not on missing punctuation or duplicated words.

Don’t beat yourself up about it, BUT…
  • You need to get this right, because you know how important it is to you and your readers. If you want to provide a lightbulb moment, then those misspelt words or lack of paragraphs really matter, don't they?
  • Although you probably proofread your own work, by the time you reach the end, you might well be word blind. It is here that you can miss mistakes. Tired eyes can easily skip over style inconsistencies and bullet points numbered incorrectly.
Leave it to me
  • What I do as a proofreader is provide that final polish to the document you worked so hard to create so it’s publish-ready. That will mean making sure typographical, grammatical and formatting mistakes don’t slip through.
  • I provide thorough proofreading services so you have less to worry about when it comes to sending off your work to your client or publisher.


This is the traditional proofreading page. If you’re looking for more than a proofread, head on over to my proof-editing page.

What are my proofreading processes?

What I’ll do is give you a guide price based on:

  • MS Word documents are marked up in green in Track Changes.
  • PDFs are marked up using commenting tools and boxes.
  • For Google Docs, I’ll use the Suggesting tool.
  • If it’s your website you need proofreading, we can discuss what will work best for you. Clients often give me access to make the changes direct.

I can’t tell you how much Yasmin helped alleviate my stress levels when I was under a time constraint to finalise my manuscript.

Let’s stop mistakes getting through.
