Proofreading – Editing – Typing – Writing For You

Have you ever read a blog or a social media post, or even a newspaper article, and noticed a typo; a ‘their’ instead of ‘they’re’, a ‘your’ instead of ‘you’re’?

Sure you have. Most people can spot these innocuous mistakes a mile off.

Some care, some don’t.

You still know what the author is meaning.

But it doesn’t make sense (technically).

This is where proofreading and editing can make all the difference. You need a pro, to catch the theirs, the theres, the who’s, the whose, the yours, the you’res, the its, the it’s – to name just a few. A pro, to catch the comma splices; to un-split a split infinitive; to ponder over parrellisms…prepositions…perfect punctuation…

 

Have you ever reached the end of typing a blog or report and noticed clever new words such as ‘runninhg,’ or ‘mafketing’; a glaring nothing where a full stop should be; a whole paragraph of angry, shouty capitals where you just meant to have a rather cheery article on morale in the workplace for your newsletter??

Probably. Everyone has.

What do you do?

Just spend half an hour of your time fixing these up – time that could be better spent somewhere else in your business – and move on.

Or let Pro Writings help you.

We can help your writing become clear, concise, compelling, and free of those previously mentioned typos; whether it be proofreading your existing work, typing up a transcript, or creating a new piece of writing for you.

Why is proofreading important?

Imagine you are shopping for a brand new Rimu dining table and chairs. The native wood is beautiful, makes lovely furniture.

You start by heading to your local department store; you’ve been there numerous times and have purchased many items, a tried and tested system.

You find the perfect dining table with eight matching chairs; however, you notice a blemish – a chip on the surface of the table, or a screw not flush with the wood. It makes you stop, think, and decide to look elsewhere. What if the blemish is a sign of carelessness in the making of the table? What if the chairs aren’t up to scratch either and there are problems with them too? You look around for another design or brand of furniture; you may even go to another store.

 

It is the same in business communication. One mistake; one imperfection, and the overall finish – your brand – is cast in doubt. Your reputation and credibility, which has taken a lot of time and hard work to build, is challenged. You need to remain professional and credible at all times, and Pro Writings can help.

We understand the importance of proofreading for you and your business, and we offer a comprehensive service to ensure your writings are free of any mistakes that detract from the overall appearance and effectiveness of your words.

We offer proofreading and editing as a combined service, as we find many people want more than a standard spelling, grammar and punctuation check. You may not realise most companies specify proofreading or editing as two services, and subsequently, charge as such.

 

 

As well as proofreading and editing your original work, we can create for you too!

 

As a busy professional, you may prefer to dictate your reports, and have someone else type them into a logical and understandable transcript. Pro Writings can help, and will as standard ensure the finished report has our proofreading and editing polish!

As a business owner, you may send a monthly newsletter to your clients. Pro Writings can produce clear and compelling content for your newsletter, website, blog. We can work with you as to what topics you may require, your deadline, and your audience, and do the hard work for you. All finished copies are complete with our proofreading and editing seal of approval, of course!

Consider this true story

 

This November will be the seventh-year anniversary of my emigrating to New Zealand, after the country peaked my interest when I travelled briefly through the two islands. The extreme sports on offer wet my appetite for more and I couldn’t of asked for a better trip when me and my friends found ourselves skydiving over Lake Taupo and bungy jumping from the highest bridge in Queenstown.

Many years later, when I wanted to permanently move to New Zealand with my partner, our visa’s were granted and we could make the exciting journey to Aotearoa!

New Zealand couldn’t be further from the UK, but it suits my family and I just fine.

 

It reads okay, doesn’t it? A nice, simple story, makes sense.

 

 

Modern day computers can help the writer immensely with regards to spelling mistakes and punctuation problems. 

But they have their limits.

For example, the above true story has spelling, grammatical, and language mistakes aplenty, but your computer’s spellchecker would only pick up on one or two of them, not 10!

This is why a real-life proofreader is an important asset to your writings; don’t just rely on your digital one!
