Proofreading | Copy-editing | User-experience Testing
For better or worse, people will judge your business on what they see and read. It’s my job to enhance, perfect and protect your image and brand.
I check the accuracy and the quality of text, design, layouts, images and all embedded media to ensure perfection in every sense: textually, visually, aurally, and in terms of usability and accessibility.
I work on the full range of digital media, including:
- Digital magazines and newsletters
- eLearning courses.
I also work on print media, such as:

Sophie has an unbelievable eye for detail, most especially when it comes to the written word. She is thorough, will check everything required and, although she says she won't write your website for you, she should!
Amanda Pelham Green, Director, Odyssey Mentor
Sophie has carried out quality assurance and proofreading for recent editions of our online quarterly magazine. She has the ability to adapt her frame of reference to perfectly suit the brand and context. So an information piece from a financial brand gets a more formal, grammatically rigorous overhaul, while a witty blogpost from an opinionated maverick gets to keep all its slang and witticisms. Understanding how language can flex to fit these different scenarios but still be correctly formed is a great skill – something that Sophie has in abundance.
