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
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

"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!"
