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.

    My name is Ashley Matthews, and I am an excellent transcriber. Hi, that's me! Ignore all the moving around in the video - I come from an Italian-Irish family and we don't know how to talk without using our hands! As of August 2013, I am officially in the top 10% of all ODesk contractors, and I am the highest rated contractor who focuses solely on transcription services - you are in the best of hands. My work ranges from ten-speaker business collaborations to government committee meetings to documentaries and more. I can cleanly transcribe the thickest of accents (from various different countries across the globe), and I ensure a complete, 100% accuracy in everything I do. Trustworthy, communicative, and a real, live person, my previous and current clients know they can depend on me wholeheartedly for any of their needs: although my focus is transcription, I am skilled in editing and proofreading, formatting e-books, and even voiceover work. I am here at your disposal. With a strong and broad academic background, I am familiar with not only medical but general technical terminology and take great pride in presenting you with a perfect, completely legible product. I am not your average transcriber, and my five star rating and work history shows it. Put your work in my hands, and I promise that you will feel the same.  less
