Professional proofreading and copy-editing services


‘Caroline Barden’s proofreading was accurate, thorough, and unobtrusive.’ Umlauf and Orrom Industrial Design.

When you are thinking about attracting new customers it can be an investment to have an editor check over your promotional materials. I will help by copy-editing or proofreading your business flyers, blog posts, web pages, articles and posters to ensure that they are outstanding.

  • Make sure your customers see the message and not the mistakes

When you have a report to present to your stakeholders, whether it is a self-assessment report or a new idea that you are floating with the board, you want your writing to stand out. It is not just spelling errors and typos that you must think about, but also the style of the piece – whether the sentences and paragraphs make sense and hang together.

  • Send me your business plans and reports to copy-edit or proofread in advance

When you are training staff, or presenting your company’s goals and strategies, make sure that your audience is not distracted by errors in the text or the style.

  • Keep your audience focused with a distraction-free presentation
