Watford, England (PRWEB) September 14, 2008
Freelance commercial writer and proofreader Paul Parry has launched a new proofreading service which aims to help students and businesses with their writing.
And to celebrate the introduction of his service, Paul has decided to give away his 67-page e-book, 'Improve Your English'.
"I want people to benefit from my knowledge and experience in as many ways as possible," he says. "I've had great feedback already from those who have taken advantage and downloaded a copy. The consensus is that it's a simple learning tool which covers all the major points of English grammar, punctuation and writing in one portable location."
"As a proofreader," says Paul, "my job is to provide a final quality check of your written text after it has been edited and before it is printed, published or submitted."
"Credibility suffers when your, or your company's, written content is poor. I can help to ensure your readers focus on your message rather than any mistakes."
Paul, who is a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders, has helped clients, business partners, associates, family and friends since he began to freelance three years ago.
Although the EnglishLanguageExpert is based in Hertfordshire, England, he is ready to help wherever you are in the world: "The new service is based on email - you can upload documents via my website and are charged according to the length of the document, rather than by the hour."
"This is so people are able to calculate a fixed price for the work. Once I have received a document, I work out a definite price based on the total word count multiplied by my fixed fee per word, which is 0.6 pence, or £6 per thousand words. I don't like nasty surprises, and nor does anyone else."
Proofreaders check all manner of things, including grammar, punctuation and spelling, page- numbering and also that there are no confusing word, column or page breaks.
"I check work for a wide range of media," says Paul, "including websites, advertising, marketing and brochures."
