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 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-14130854).
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’.
