Here’s how the process works:
Send me your transcript as a PDF and tell me when you would like it back (a specific date and time of day would be greatly appreciated!)
I thoroughly and meticulously proofread the entire document, making annotations directly on the page using red text and yellow highlighting
I follow your preferences and your preferred punctuation guide
By or before the deadline you give me, I return only those pages that have annotations, unless you prefer to receive the entire document
That’s pretty much all there is to it!
Please be sure to send me only an edited and scoped, turn-in-ready draft. (For a more detailed discussion about this, please see the Pricing + Policies page.)
All new clients will be asked to complete a Reporter’s Preference Sheet prior to my starting work on the initial job. This will give me valuable information about how you like your writing to look so that I can give you a personalized experience.
In the event a deadline for a job should change, please let me know as soon as possible, and I will do my best to accommodate you. Be aware that the changing of deadlines may change the rate that you will be billed.
If you are sending a large job of 200 pages or more and it is needed back in 48 hours or less, I kindly request that you send it in 50- to 100-page chunks, if possible. I find that this helps streamline the process considerably, especially when there is a very tight deadline. I generally will bill for each “chunk” separately, according to the amount of time I am given to complete work on it.
If ever I am unavailable to proofread a job for you and you do not already have a backup proofreader, I would be happy to assist you with finding one.
