Jodie Marley

About me

I am a freelance proofreader, offering a friendly and professional service. If you have material ready for publication, or to be posted on a website or blog, I can assist you by giving your document a final check to look for any errors in spelling, punctuation and grammar that may have slipped through, and will also check the overall style and layout for consistency throughout the material to ensure your work looks polished and professional.

I am happy to work on many different types of document, large or small, onscreen or on paper. I am fully trained in the use of the BSI proofreading symbols, but am equally happy to mark-up documents using Track Changes in Word or the annotation tools in Adobe Acrobat Reader on PDF.

I can work on a wide variety of subject matter, but offer excellent background knowledge in the areas of veterinary medicine and biomedical sciences. My interests include gardening, history and nature.

Jodie recently proofread one of our technical detailers and we were very pleased with the results! She was quick and efficient and explained all changes that were made. Her veterinary knowledge also came in very helpful for this! We will certainly be using her again.
