Proofreading and editing services for businesses

Every business wants to appear professional, but a typo on marketing material or a grammatical error on a company report can lead to misunderstandings and even damage trust in your business. I can work with you to make sure all of your texts are consistent and free of typos, misspellings and grammatical errors whilst staying true to your brand. Find out more about the editing services I offer in the downloadable flyer below (PDF).

With twelve years' experience in the architectural design industry, I specialise in architecture and design-related disciplines. Although I am happy to work on a variety of subjects. I have proofread and edited in UK and US English, and worked with people whose first language is not English.

As part of my proofreading and editing services, I offer to work through a 500–1,000 word sample of your text for free so that you can evaluate my services with a real example, and I can figure out how long it will take me to edit your entire document. I'll provide a quote when I return the proofread sample. The price will depend on the level and extent of the service required.

I use the Track Changes tool in Word so that you can review each of my edits and decide if you wish to accept or reject them. I can also use the Adobe commenting tools on PDF if you prefer (proofreading service only). I have experience working with different style sheets. I'm willing to work with your business's style sheet, or I can help you develop your own if you don't have one.

How it works

The first step is to send me (tori@seymourproofreading.co.uk) the following:

  • the details of your document and exact word count

  • your schedule/deadline and budget

  • the service you require (proofread or copy-edit)

  • the format of your file (Word or PDF)

  • a representative 500–1,000 word sample of your text

I can then let you know if the work can be fitted into my schedule. If so, I'll work on your sample and return it to you within two days with your quote. If you would prefer not to send a sample until I can confirm availability, then please send details of your work, word count, deadline and budget.
