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 written over 5000 articles on a broad range of topics. I offer proofreading, editing and writing services of a very high standard but at an economical price. I prefer flat rate jobs and am happy to negotiate fees, but have put a start fee in the box because you cannot leave it blank. No job too big or small. ***In case you are not from Australia (which is where I am ) you will notice I use Australian spelling unless I am otherwise instructed by a client. However, I can write equally well in US and UK English. I have never missed a deadline and have plenty of satisfied customers, including many who return again and again. Although I haven't done a lot of work in this site, I do have plenty of experience. Just ask and I can help you. My websites are http://ghostwritingspot.com and http://laurencewins.com  less

    It was in 2009 when my daughter introduced me to oDesk. She, being a young fulltime mom then, realized how convenient and more rewarding it was to be able to work and at the same time be home and take care of her baby. I have, for more than 25 years, focused my energies on fulltime mothering, homeschooling and ministry myself, so I can't agree with her more. I also find oDesk as a wonderful opportunity to combine my family and ministry roles with my desire to further enhance my personal skills. My experience with oDesk thus far has been very rewarding, in terms of personal growth in knowledge and skills, and also in terms of opportunity to develop good working relationships with clients. My objective is simply to provide high-quality and dependable service. I am a diligent worker, preferring to work independently but delivering quick and timely service.  less
