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.

    As a freelance writer and editor I have worked online at various intervals over the past five years on different websites writing on several topics. My coporate work experience has been in many industries and roles, with several years in quality assurance as a proofreader and copyeditor. My focus is on the quality of the project for the client's standards and needs, and that was my main role in quality assurance. Through my own work I focus on both the quality of content and presentation of an article or post in my writing, and with my own work I work to make sure that all grammar and content are up-to-standard. I look forward to being able to produce quality work for outside clients again through further freelance work.  less

    My main objective is to utilize my gift-curse in writing using oDesk as an outlet while I'm in law school. My works have been published in our high school, university, and post-grad publications. I was also the News Editor for our high school paper. If you want to have a glimpse of my writing skills, check out my writing portfolio. My belief is that writing should be vivid and melodious without losing its crisp and brevity. My work ethic is my pride. I work efficiently, accurately, and always beat deadlines: you'll get the commissioned work on time or my work is free. I specialize in persuasive writing with the help of my background in Psychology. My other specialties are: proofreading and editing technical documents and other text; writing and editing proposals, e-books, non-fiction and fiction books (novels); writing keyword articles; writing blogs and articles; and creative writing.  less
