Do you want to put your best foot forward when it comes to promoting your business or book? Sloppy copy does little to impress your audience. This is where a proof reader or copy editor comes in handy.
Azalea Publications offers proofreading services for any size document. We work with students, authors, businesses, scholars, website designers, and especially those who speak English as a second language and would like another set of eyes to look over their work. Proofreading is perfect for your already edited, ready-to-publish document. We will look for punctuation errors, spelling mistakes, and typos to get your materials publication-ready. Your manuscript will be carefully read line by line and revisions will be tracked so that you can easily review changes. We’ll also write a short summary of any changes made. Cost is $0.05/ word for typical proofreading and turnaround time is one week or less. We are available to complete quick-turnaround proofreading for $0.08/ word.
If you are looking for a thorough makeover, including help with word choice or redundancy, sentence structure and style, assistance with proper grammar, fact checking, smoothing out confusing or awkward sentences, and helping you maintain a specific editorial style (spelling, hyphenation, capitalization, punctuation, abbreviations, citations and more), you need a copy editor.
We’ll polish your document and provide suggestions if needed, improving clarity and flow while letting your voice be heard. Constantly alert to any inaccuracies or discrepancies, we’ll flag it for your review. We’ll check facts and figures against reputable sources. The result is a stronger advertisement, article, web page, or book. All revisions are tracked and you have the power to review all changes, leaving you in control of your document. We’ll provide a written summary of revisions completed as well as offer suggestions.
Copy editing is charged per hour (estimated 250 words per hour). Project length and cost can be determined once we see a sample of your document and we discuss exactly what you would like accomplished.
