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.

    April Rain is the founder of Infinite Possibilities Utah, Professional Doulas of America, and in November 2012, launched Infinite Joy Publishing, a firm dedicated to providing aspiring authors an accessible catalyst to turn their e-book dreams, into tangible -- and lucrative -- realities. She is an author, life coach, wealth coach, doula, Law of Attraction expert, teen mentor, transformational speaker and Certified Infinite Possibilities Trainer. She has been speaking and teaching empowerment classes for the last ten years, and recently has made it her mission to bring the philosophy of expanded awareness and wealth consciousness to children before life has the chance to irreparably pollute their minds with negativity and self-doubt. April is passionate about helping people unleash their inner “Bad-Ass”, so that those who experience her message are empowered to embrace the idea of living their dreams, as they were meant to be, rather than suffering through the lack of an otherwise uninspired life. April is co-chair of the Infinite Possibilities Global Teen Taskforce, and contributes her energy to realizing its goal of helping people unlock their inner divinity and creativity, thereby empowering them to envision and manifest the lives of their dreams in spite of the influence of their everyday life experiences. Her next book, a top secret passion project, is scheduled for release in the Summer of 2014.  less

    **Perfect score on oDesk's spelling test and top 10% on vocabulary** I am a professional editor with experience proofreading, copy editing, and developmental editing for more than ten different book publishers. What you need to know about me, first of all, is that I care about your document. When I take on your project, it becomes my project. I want your book, paper, or document to be as professional as possible and will put all my skills toward meeting that goal. I earned my BA in English from the University of Colorado and, way back when, was the valedictorian of Anoka High School in Anoka, Minnesota, class of 800 students. Much of my experience comes from the Christian market. I’m knowledgeable about Biblical concepts and theology if that’s the direction your manuscript leans. I’ve also edited fiction and many other types of nonfiction, including health, sports, and business books, recipes, memoirs, and periodicals. I especially love the topics of history, science, gardening, and music.  less
