A proofreader will, of course, check for typos, grammar errors, and inconsistencies. They are also an impartial outsider who will be able to highlight any areas that may not be clear to someone without your background. Here are a few case studies highlight other areas where I can help clients.
Case study 1 – weekly blogs:
Team members in Client A take it in turns to write a weekly blog in WordPress. Team member 1 uses ‘focussing’ and ‘organisation’ when they’re writing, team member 2 prefers ‘focusing’ and ‘whilst’, and team member 3 uses ‘organization’ and ‘while’. I have drawn up a corporate style sheet for their website, and use this to make sure their blog is consistent. I do, of course, also check for typos and anything that is unclear.
Case study 2 – a multi-session training course
Client B creates bespoke training courses, each of which consist of multiple sessions produced over a period of months. As well as checking for typos, and that the sessions are consistently formatted, I check references to previous (or subsequent) sessions are correct, test all the weblinks referred to, and I make sure that the teacher’s planning notes agree with the students’ notes.
Case study 3 – AI generated transcriptions
Client C produces video course with AI generated transcripts. Once these transcripts have been generated, I check that the wording accurately reflects what was said in the original video, remove any gobbledegook, and highlight any supporting material that may have been referred to.
