What is Amend?
Amend is a professional proofreading service which will ensure your documents, presentations and publications, whether hard copy or on-screen, are error-free and making a good impression on your clients and the general public.


Why use Amend?
There may be a temptation to skip the proofreading process to save time and money or to believe a quick read-through or spell-check will suffice. However, it is an important stage in the quality control process and a small investment here may avoid costly corrections at a later stage. Material containing errors, inconsistencies and omissions will not create a good impression - first impressions count.


What will Amend do for my company?
Proofreading identifies any errors and omissions in a text - whether they are typographical, linguistic, positional or technical, by checking for the following:

Completeness - any letters, words, paragraphs, pages, pictures, tables etc missing?

Correctness - any typographical errors, font changes or misalignments?

Consistency - any inconsistencies of style or information not corresponding to indexes, lists, cross-references etc?


What is Amend's background?
We have been in business since 1999 and have a professional qualification in proofreading, having undertaken the Chapterhouse Proofreader Plus course. We are happy to work on paper using proofmarks or highlighting changes needed, or by electronic means - including file transfer or online checking. Should references be required we would be happy to supply contact details for previous satisfied clients.


How much will it cost?
We generally charge £10 per hour but are willing to give an estimate of the total cost of a project if preferred. Short-notice jobs can sometimes be undertaken.

When you're tempted to rely on your PC - remember this:

"I have a spelling chequer, it came with my PC.
It plainly marks for my revue, miss takes I cannot sea.
I've run this poem threw it - I'm shore your pleased to no,
It's letter perfect in it's weigh - my chequer told me so!"
