Get Your Proofreading Project Started Today!

Post your proofreading and grammar-checking project on oDesk and hire proof readers and book editors with excellent grammar skills. You will also find professionals who have experience with proofreading software (like grammar and plagiarism checkers) and editing tools (like Microsoft Word’s “track changes” feature) to check the spelling, grammar and vocabulary of your documents. With accuracy and attention to detail, they can proofread business proposals, marketing materials and tech reports; review your articles, blog or website content; or correct book translations and audio transcriptions.

Proofreading is the process of reading through an electronic copy (or galley proof) of a piece of written work to detect and correct errors before it is published. On oDesk, the world’s largest online workplace, you will find native English speakers and proofreaders familiar with editing marks and the APA, MLA, Harvard and Chicago style guidelines to provide you with professional editing, grammar checking and proofreading services.

    I have been a self-employed medical transcriptionist for over six years. I have experience in gastroenterology, orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery and pain management, dermatology, and a little bit of oncology. I have transcribed for many different doctors with varying accents (including foreign).

I have excellent grammar and punctuation skills, and I always proofread my work before turning it in. I have a complete home office set up. I use Microsoft Word 2010 on a daily basis. I have a foot pedal and headset as well as a variety of transcription software to ensure I can transcribe all different types of files.
