What do I check?

When I check your document or text, I look out for spelling mistakes and typos, grammatical errors and punctuation flaws.

I also have a look at the page numbers, headers and footers, styles of headlines and paragraphs, footnotes and endnotes, for consistency and a steady appearance.

If you have any further question or want to discuss your project with me, please send me a message.

What others are saying ...

Thank you, Barbara. You’ve, again, done a brilliant job proofreading our magazine. Besides correcting the spelling and punctuation, you check the Impulse as a whole with a lot of attention to detail. Not only do you spot wrong numberings in the footers and double spaces with eagle eyes, but you also apply common sense and check the context. Once again, I’ve incorporated all your suggestions. Thanks!

Hauke B. – editor Impulse

… I would like to commend how you've presented your work. The annotations look really good …
