Need someone who can put an apostrophe in its place?

Someone who's fast, thorough and reliable, with a healthy respect for deadlines?

As well as punctuation, I'll mark any spelling and grammar problems, make sure styles (headings, bullets etc) are used consistently throughout your document, and I'll offer suggestions if something could read a little better.

bulletNeed it now?

Same day? Next day? Not a problem.

bulletHard or soft copy?

Courier or mail me your hard (printed) copy, I'll clearly mark any changes and deliver it back to you at no extra charge, or email me a soft (electronic) copy, and I'll track the changes and email it back.

I can also proofread website copy and provide a Word document or Excel spreadsheet detailing suggested changes and mark up PDFs.

bulletNeed someone experienced, with a great track record?

These are some of the organisations I'm proud to proofread for on a regular basis:

bulletBRANZ
bulletHealthcare of New Zealand
bulletMinistry of Business, Innovation and Employment
bulletScooter Design
bulletTe Rito Maioha Early Childhood New Zealand
bulletThe University of Waikato - Science Learning Hub
bulletNeed reasonable rates?

My hourly rate is NZ$80 (plus GST). 

My average hard copy proofreading speed is around 3,000 words per hour - an A4 page is about 300-400 words. Soft copy takes a little longer. No job is too small (minimum charge is 15 minutes) or too large. 

I'm happy to provide a more accurate estimate or fixed quote once I see what's involved.

bulletNeed a magazine or newsletter proofread?

I proofread these publications on a regular basis:

bulletBuild
bulletIti Rearea
bulletMatters of Substance
bulletOffshore Support Journal
bulletOffshore Wind Journal
bulletNeed a style guide?

I can provide a basic style guide (covering standard punctuation, grammar and spelling conventions) at no charge, and I'm happy to work with you to tailor it for your organisation.
