No matter how eloquent your English, how poetic your prose or how graceful your grammar, it’s still all too easy to end up with a typo in the miffle middle of your sentence. Oops, see what I mean?

It is always far more difficult to spot your own written errors than it is for someone else, with a fresh pair of eyes, checking your wording for you. Even prize-winning authors need copy-editors and proofreaders to clean up their written word before publishing!

A well-polished document or website may not be guaranteed to win you more business, but a poorly written or edited one is highly likely to lose it (discussed in this BBC article

Let me, at Corten Editorial, be your fresh pair of eyes and help you to present a professional image to your potential and existing customers, or even your own staff, by providing a service that will improve your written communication and documents.

I can assist you with many types of written content, including:

• Books • Proposals • Business requirements documents • Reports • Brochures/marketing materials

• Presentations • Training manuals • Letters/emails • Website content (text) • Restaurant menus

• CVs/cover letters for job applications • Any other type of business document you can think of!

If you have some written content that you would like me to copy-edit/proofread for you that does not fall into any of the above areas, feel free to email me for a quotation as the list above is not exhaustive and I would love to help you.

The document formats that I can work with are MS Word, MS PowerPoint, MS Excel, PDF, emailed text or even good old-fashioned paper.

I provide separate proofreading and copy-editing services, as well as a combined copy-editing and proofreading service (sometimes called proof-editing), each of which is appropriate to different types of written content. Further details of all of these services are given on my ‘How I Can Help’ page and my particular areas of expertise can be found under ‘About Me’.
