Proofreading and copy-editing services
I started my business, Superscript Proofreading, in 2009. I am the sole owner and am a qualified and experienced freelance proofreader and copy-editor specialising in working on non-fiction texts on a wide range of subjects. I love improving texts and am dedicated to providing an excellent service. I pay meticulous attention to detail and have never missed a deadline.
I am a native British English speaker and have extensive experience of working on the texts of authors whose first language isn't English and of working with US English and other Englishes from around the world.
I'm also a Professional Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP). One of the CIEP's aims is to promote high editorial standards, and I set very high standards for myself in my own work and take pride in doing so. You can see some of the testimonials I've received at the bottom of this page and there are more testimonials here.

Benefits of proofreading
A text that is unclear, is difficult to read or does not get your intended message across can really devalue your work. Spellcheckers and grammar checkers are good at spotting some errors, but will definitely not spot all of your mistakes or deal with the nuances in language that I'd pick up on.
If you use my proofreading and copy-editing services you can be confident that I will always be friendly and professional and will significantly improve your text.
