Whether your document needs a quick once-over, a light tweak or a full overhaul, I’m here to help. I offer editing and proofreading services tailored to suit your needs.


When your document has been written, edited and the layout has been designed, it’s almost ready for publication. It’ll just need one final check to make sure everything is as it should be. This is where the proofreader comes in – to catch any last-minute errors that have made it onto the page. Generally speaking, the proofreader should not be the same person as the copy-editor; a fresh pair of eyes is very important at this final stage.

Copy-editing typically happens after the document has been written but before the designer or typesetter lays it out on the page. The editor acts as a bridge between the writer and the designer, correcting errors in the text and, if appropriate, indicating to the designer where the illustrations, tables and so on should go in the finished work.

    Anne was my first choice for getting my bachelor thesis proofread. She not only surprised me with the speed with which she was able to do the job, but was also incredibly helpful when it came to properly formatting my bibliography. I can't recommend her enough if you're in need of a second pair of eyes to check your writing!

    Anne is a terrific proofreader, writer, editor, and publisher. She has exceptional English skills and is brilliant at transforming data and words into highly readable, well-written and engaging articles, papers, and reports. She has pulled together intelligence from across the world, synthesising it into published gems. She is super-intelligent, committed, loyal, and a thoroughly nice person. I could not recommend her more highly.
