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.

    After 15 years as a newspaper reporter, I want to put my research, writing and editing skills to work for my own benefit. I have extensive background in government, public finance and history along with the ability to spin a great feature story. I can write clear, concise copy on deadline. If you already have written it, I can both proofread and edit your writing. (They are different skillsets and not everyone can do both.) I also can teach you how to be a better writer. As far as research, I don't know everything but I do know where to find everything beyond just mass data scraping. I won a research award long before the Internet. I also can take all that information and condense to something the average reader can understand.  less
