Proofreading, editing and copywriting service.

If anyone reading this requires help with their English language writing, then please contact me. I will check your work for spelling, grammar, punctuation, vocabulary and then make the necessary alterations. Furthermore, if you require it, I will also write the entire piece of work. All I ask for in return is a small donation. Rather than repeat myself, please read some of my previous “posts” for further details.

Thanks for reading; looking forward to hearing from you. Any constructive comments always welcome.

Can you check my website text for any possible mistakes?

If you are unsure whether the wording for your website is correct for spelling, grammar, punctuation and vocabulary then I can reassure you. Obviously, you want your website to look its best, regardless of whether it’s for business or personal use. In other words, you want readers to respect the hard work and time you have invested in constructing your website and, naturally, you hope they will return on a regular basis. Consequently, one way to ensure that they do is by using the English language correctly, and that’s where I can come to your aid.

Either email me with your draft wording, as an attachment if you prefer, or simply supply your website URL. I will then proofread your writing and, if necessary, edit the text to improve it. However, if you feel uncomfortable writing the information for your website, I’m prepared to write it for you; just supply me with all the necessary details. For further information concerning copywriting, please read an earlier “post” of mine, “Can you help me with my English language writing?

All I ask in return for offering my service is a small donation; whatever you think appropriate for completed work. As usual, if you have any work to submit, please contact me via my email address: matthew@cymru3117.fsnet.co.uk. You can also, of course, leave constructive comments on this blog.

Thanks for reading, speak to you again soon.

Can you help me with my English language writing?

Yes, most definitely!

If you need help writing your essay, CV (résumé), business/personal letters, business cards, brochures, ads., flyers, leaflets or website/blog text, then you have arrived at the correct place.

First, I’ll proofread and edit your draft for – spelling, grammar, punctuation and vocabulary. Then I’ll also, if need be, offer additional help, advice and suggestions to improve the writing.

However, which is something new to the service I offer, I’m also willing to write the entire piece of work but, it must be short; definitely no essays! Why, you might ask. Two reasons: first, essays can be rather long, and secondly, which is my main objection, they should most certainly be your OWN work! So please don’t ask. If unsure whether your particular piece of text qualifies, just ask. All you need to do is supply me with details of the content e.g. the purpose, your audience, keywords (extremely important, especially if Internet related), and rough details of the message you wish to convey; the more information you can offer, the better. Then I’ll work my magic!

So try my service, you won’t be disappointed; you can check my CV, if you like. All I ask for in return is a small donation; whatever you can afford.

Looking forward to hearing from you. If you have any work to submit, questions or comments, you can contact me, via email, at: matthew@cymru3117.fsnet.co.uk, or leave a comment on this blog.

Thanks for reading. Diolch yn fawr.

Why did you decide to write this blog on proofreading and editing?

Another good question! If you missed my last “post”: “What was the motivation for writing this blog on proofreading and editing?,” you may prefer to read that first.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a remarkable talent – a good “eye for detail.” To be more precise, to notice mistakes or flaws in everyday life e.g. (I should consult my teenage diaries to help my memory!) detail missing or something included that shouldn’t be; colours or patterns not matching and even correcting people’s speech i.e. bad grammar or if they make contradictions. I suspect many people reading this or whom know me think I’m a little too precise or, to use a more fitting word – pedantic. However, we are all unique human beings, so consequently I’m not going to let it bother me! Anyway, there are advantages to all this.

On the positive side, as far as people are concerned, this facet of my nature should delight them; this “skill” can be used most effectively in checking their writings for errors. Proofreading and editing text is what I do best i.e. looking for mistakes and suggest improvements in spelling, grammar, punctuation, vocabulary and, most importantly … does the writing make sense? Obviously, extremely important! In plain words, if what you write cannot be properly understood by others, how can you possibly convey your message effectively? The answer, of course, is you can’t! Consequently, doesn’t it sound logical to use a proofreading and editing service such as mine? Please say yes! Otherwise I’m just wasting my time! Seriously though, if you want to convey a good impression, for example to a prospective employer i.e. CV (résumé); to readers of your website, blog or an advertisement; or to the recipient of a business/personal letter, then let me help you in that quest. In return, I only request a donation; whatever you think I’m worth! So go on, give me the opportunity to prove myself. I don’t think you will be disappointed.

That’s all for now; looking forward to hearing from you. If you have any work to submit, questions or comments, please feel free to contact me, via email, at: matthew@cymru3117.fsnet.co.uk. You can also, of course, leave comments on this blog.

Thanks for reading. Hwyl (Bye).
