How It Works

Contact Me

Please contact me to make sure I can accommodate your deadline, especially if it’s a large job (150+ pages) or if you need it back faster than the standard 72 hours. I’ll reply (between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Pacific) and let you know what the anticipated billing rate will be.



Send Your Transcript

E-mail your file to me in PDF format. (Need help? This page will show you how to convert your files into PDF.)



Receive Your Proofs

Notations will be be written in easy-to-read black pen with the line number circled. To save you time, I will send back only the pages that have corrections on them.

Psst! I use traditional proofreaders’ marks because they are beautiful, but you won’t have to guess what they mean. Every correction includes a clear explanation.

Important: You may need the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader to see all of my notations. (Need help? This page will help you install Adobe.)




Rush Jobs

For  best efficiency with same-day turnaround, please break up large jobs (150+ pages) into chunks of 50 pages.

Here’s how it works: You send me the 50-page section you just finished scoping, and I’ll proof that while you’re busy scoping the next section.

The advantage of both of us working simultaneously is that it’s a time-saver and may also save you money, as rates will be based on when each individual segment was received.
