I asked Ellie to proofread my Ph.D. dissertation at the final stage prior to publication. It was 462 pages in length and she did the proof reading on very short notice over a weekend. I appreciated her promptness, attention to detail, and professionalism. She went above and beyond when I asked her to review some additional issues with the formatting of my references in the footnotes.

She did a wonderful job on Proofreading and Editing this 88 page letter to my daughter. She did this with no mistakes and the Editing was just right. If I ever need a Proofreader or Editor in the future, Guitta would be the first person I will call.

Shaula is a professional and highly competent editor. I send everything I write to her, be it chapters of my novel, posts to my blog and even sometimes verbose emails. Her attention to detail is astounding and she not only proofreads exceptionally well, she also focuses on content and readability. She poses questions and comments on the things that work and the things that don't. Having a vast knowledge of literature and books, this makes her an excellent source to also bounce ideas of of, if one is worried about flow or plot problems. She can think it through and give her feedback. Shaula is more than just a proofreader, she's an editor. And she's the best one I've ever used!

About

I am a college student (majoring in English) and spend the majority of my free time writing and reading. Yes, I am the person that my friends ask to look over their resume. Yes, I am the person who can tell you where the spelling errors are in quite a few famous books. No, I am not a total stickler for "the rules" all of the time, and understand that style is just as important as what you are actually trying to say. I have both a Mac and a PC so I can view pretty much any type of document. If you have a hardcopy of your draft, even better! Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have. I look forward to working with you.

About

Over 15 years of experience in translation, essay writing and proofreading vouch for my life-long passion for this field and have earned me extensive knowledge and outstanding skills. Even so, professional translations take more than knowledge and skills; it’s a process of cultivating techniques and refining abilities to find culturally linguistic equivalence in the target language. My translations begin with the understanding that any material needs to be localized in order to successfully convey a message; current language use is taken into account, while keeping syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic integrity in the target language. My proofreading strategies are based on systematic layered-proofing techniques. My fields of interest have been general market, media and advertising, but my experience is extensive and all-inclusive.

About

After working as an editor for a transcription company for a couple of years, I've built up my skills in proofreading and editing while working with audio. Now, I'm looking to expand and work with other types of content, both tied to audio and not. To that end, I'm currently getting used to working with the Chicago Manual of Style.
