When uploading files for proofreading, please rename your document as follows:
First name-Last name-today’s date.
For instance, if your first name is Jon, your last name is Smith and today’s date is 2 July 2019, the name of your file would be:
If you send more than one file on the same day please name the second file Jon-Smith-02072019-2, and so on.
Once your documents have been received I will carry out a word count in Microsoft Word (Tools → Word Count…) to determine the price. For instance, if the word count shows 2,093 words, then 2,093 multiplied by 00.75 pence equals £15.70.
After I have carried out the word count and pricing I will send you an e-mail confirming the price.
Your document is proofread using the 'track changes' function of Microsoft Word. This is a standard function installed in most versions of Microsoft Word. This function allows you to move easily between changes and accept any or all of the modifications proposed by the proofreader. Corrections, suggestions and comments are shown in the right-hand margin and are easy to accept into your document.
When I have finished proofreading I will return two files to you: a tracked version and a clean version of your proofread document. The tracked version is named Yourfilename-tracked. The clean version will be named Yourfilename-clean.
The advantage of this method is that in the tracked version of your document you can easily move between the changes I have made. The clean version is ready to print out and you do not have to type in all the changes yourself. Corrections, suggestions and comments are shown in the right-hand margin of the tracked version.
Fill in the form and I will contact you ASAP
