Proofreading: For material that’s final, just before it goes to press. I check and correct spelling, agreement, capitalization, word use, style, and accuracy. I will verify all links and some facts (spelling of proper nouns, accuracy of figures, and that type of thing). More extensive fact-checking is available for an additional fee. I will also provide formatting of material I proofread.
One of my specialties is giving books, magazines, and other printed media—calendars, DVD covers, posters, agendas, etc.—a final proofread before printing. I'm accustomed to working with Adobe Acrobat files and their markup in this process.
I also work with MS Word files and revisions and annotations, according to the author's preference. At the moment I use Word 2010 and I can return files in .docx, .doc, .rtf or other file formats.
