Why am I so passionate about proofreading, or as some might say, why am I so
Well, ‘conscientious’ was the word written on almost every page of my school
reports and that trait has stayed with me. I simply like things to be the very best they can be.
Having been a communications professional for over a decade, I know how it feels to pour your time, effort, creativity, and substantial resources into an important
message or document; only to feel crushing disappointment when the first response you receive is about one tiny typo that somehow slipped through.
I became determined to do a better job, which sparked my interest in proofreading and, happily, I discovered an aptitude for it. I took my somewhat annoying personality trait and channelled it – I retrained, honed my skills and set up Red Ribbon
I love words and now I notice these errors all around me every day. I know I can help people avoid the disappointment, the negativity and the potential loss of business associated with typos, grammatical errors and design mistakes.
I deliver a reliable and flexible service tailored to my client’s specific needs. With meticulous attention to detail and a keen eye for layout due to my design
background, I can be the last line of defence against errors and my clients have peace of mind.
I can provide digital correction and mark-up with Adobe Acrobat and Microsoft Word or traditional hard copy proofreading using BSI symbols.
If I can help in any way please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
