About Andrew Buggey
I am an Intermediate Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) and follow its Code of Practice, Ensuring Editorial Excellence.
I have completed training with:
- The Publishing Training Centre (Basic Proofreading - Pass with Merit, & Digital Skills update)
- Chapterhouse Publishing (Certificate of Competence in Proofreading and Copy-Editing)
- Society for Editors and Proofreaders (day courses)
I can proofread on screen or on paper, blind or against copy, using the BSI proof correction symbols, the Track Changes function in Word, or PDF markup tools.
I can ensure your publication or written communication (printed or electronic) has correct spelling, grammar, punctuation and use of capital letters. I can help you achieve consistent layout and style and eliminate inconsistencies, simple typos and ambiguities. I can also ensure adherence to a publisher's preferred house style, if any.
My rates are dependent on the nature and complexity of the work required. I will quote a fixed price, an hourly rate or a rate per thousand words. A rate will be agreed in writing (including email) before any work starts, together with a description of the work to be carried out, the time frame for completion and payment terms. Please see my standard Terms & Conditions.
