How it works

Proofreading and copyediting

• We agree on a deadline, scope of my services (working with hard copy or online) and a fee.

• You email me or post me a copy.

Onscreen

• I proofread/copyedit the work with track changes in Microsoft Word. This includes ‘comments’ in the document for you to address and consider.

• I then email it to you for approval.

• Either you take in the changes (accept/reject) and amend the copy according to the suggested comments or email it back to me to take in the changes.

Hard copy

Please contact me about the process for hard copy.

Transcription typing

• We agree on a deadline, scope of my services and a fee.

• You advise if you want the work formatted for a specific purpose; for example – an elegant family history
or whether it has to adhere to a formal format according to established standards or whether you want a straightforward Microsoft Word document.

• You email me the sound files/video files/scan of handwritten notes (or post/deliver them if more convenient). MP3 files can be emailed or provided on a USB stick.

• I can convert the video files into sound files if needed.

• I type up the notes. This may involve researching words as I go (i.e. foreign spelling, names of places).

• I can time-code the work according to your needs.

• I proofread the work.

• I format the notes into a simple Microsoft Word document or otherwise if specified.

• I email it back to you.

Resumes and corporate profiles

• We agree on a deadline, scope of my services and a fee.

• You provide a brief of what your resume/profile needs to reflect, email me or post me a draft copy.

• I create and format the resume/profile according to your brief and word count and email it back to you with tracked changes in Microsoft Word.

• You either take in the changes yourself (accept/reject changes) or email it back to me with comments to make the changes.

• This process allows for two rounds of changes.

• After final sign-off by yourself, I email you both a pdf and word copy (for you to amend in the future).
