Why choose me to work with your words? Because I take great care with them. Whether you've written a website or a work of fiction you will have had good reasons for choosing particular words and you'll want a proofreader or copy-editor who is sensitive to your reasons – I always aim to be that kind of proofreader/copy-editor. I ensure not only that your writing is clear, error-free and consistent, but also that it is elegant and retains the individual voice and character you would like it to have. This is important in all writing and especially in fiction.
My sensitive and respectful treatment of my clients' words has resulted in a very high level of repeat business: more than 80% of my work is further commissions from happy clients.
In the last 15 years as a proofreader and copy-editor, I have worked on:
- more than 300 full-length books (both fiction and non-fiction, in subjects ranging from diets to dogs, and Van Gogh to Venice),
- more than 3000 medico-legal (expert witness) reports in pain management, psychology, forensic psychiatry, neurology, neuropsychology, orthotics, occupational health and dermatology,
- numerous student dissertations and PhD theses,
- around 180 course units for distance learning courses,
- about 2500 school reports,
- several thousand practice exam questions for students preparing for medical school examinations,
- and a large number of reports, reviews, evaluations and proposals for government agencies, NGOs, health organisations and international development/aid consultancies.
I have more than 30 years' experience of working in editing, proofreading and translation services. I work mostly on-screen (but can work on paper using BSI proofreading symbols if required), using a variety of approaches depending on my clients' preferences. Most of my work is done in Word (using Track Changes and comments), in InDesign, or on PDFs (using Acrobat's editing tools).
My diverse background and experience in the UK and abroad – including 10 years of translating (French to English) at the Council of Europe and many years' self-employment in different fields – have given me a particularly broad general knowledge and, at the same time, enabled me to specialise in an eclectic mix of subjects. Health, medicine and international development aid feature prominently in my regular work as a proofreader and editor but I relish projects related to art, autism, ADHD/ADD, psychology, food, and photography.
I belong to an international collective of proofreaders and copy-editors called Editing Globally, which means that if a client is looking for something that I may not be able to provide, I can call on a group of trusted colleagues, one of whom is sure to fit the bill. See our website at www.editingglobally.com
Clients find me very easy to work with and friendly – I consider good communication to be essential in my proofreading and copy-editing work. I am reliable and helpful and regard going the extra mile as a normal part of my job.

Dear Etty, I wanted to thank you so much for the work you have done and continue to do on my book. My area of study in Chinese medicine is quite niche and yet your understanding and flexibility has meant that I felt at ease speaking to you about what I needed. I required copy editing and your extremely detailed and confident clarity has created the "elegant words" that my work didn't have before your involvement. Particularly your own understanding of numerous feilds including Chinese medicine meant that my attempts to explain difficult concepts were something you helped me greatly to put across to a lay audience. The whole process of working with you has been really a joy. I will definitely be back and would recommend you to anyone who requires a seriously brilliant editor.
Thank you so much.
DN, author in Chinese medical studies/self-help.
Thank you, Etty, for your excellent communications and support throughout the assignment, for your professional expertise and wise advice. It was such a blessing to me to have you as copy editor, and you are a very warm and open person to work with. I really liked the calm, fluid and yet professionally "tight" way we worked together, and I do appreciate your care in taking the time to answer my questions in a very fulsome and helpful way. I also valued the way in which you acquainted yourself with the author before starting work as well as your sensitivity to the subject matter, which was a very important factor for me.
AH, Project Manager
After complaints about errors and typos in the first novel I self-published, I was determined to make sure my next book would be perfect. Once I'd mostly finished my final draft I searched for proof-readers and copy editors and thank goodness I found Etty. She was professional and clearly passionate about her work. I was impressed that she made the effort to look up my first book when I made contact to get an idea of my style. I needed her to work very fast as I was working to a tight deadline. Etty turned each story around in a day, two days for the ones over 15,000 words, and I was amazed at how fast she was, especially as she had a great deal to correct! Her edits were clear and never detracted from what I was trying to achieve. She absolutely 'got' me, and if she wasn't sure of something she would check it with me in a way that didn't upset my needy writer's ego. I shall definitely be using Etty again. She was fast, extremely thorough, and a pleasure to work with. I'd highly recommend her to anyone who needs absolute accuracy in their writing.
AL, Author, fiction, short stories
Etty provides the medical experts who work out of Pain Expert Ltd with the very highest standard of proofreading services so ensuring that our documents are very well presented and avoid the potentially very serious pitfalls associated with work as an expert witness. Very importantly for a proofreader engaging in this type of work, Etty shows a high level of knowledge and understanding of the medical terms and phrases that we use when preparing our medicolegal documents.
As a company, Pain Expert relies on a number of professional proofreaders all of whom provide us with a good service. However, when it comes to attention to detail, a very thorough evaluation of each medicolegal report presented to her, and indeed an excellent critical appraisal of the written work when required, I have no hesitation in stating that Etty is out there in a league of her own
Dr JV, Expert witness, Pain Expert Ltd
I have worked with Etty on a number of occasions, for both proofreading and Anglicising, and have always found her to be meticulous, considered and appreciative of the subject in which she is working. In particular, she does not hesitate to raise issues that have not been previously covered, ask pertinent questions and work collaboratively with the in-house editor. I find that this discursive and open style leads to a more thorough overall job, and because of this she is my go-to proofreader for most projects
LK, Quarto Group
Thank you for an excellent job. The editing and proofreading is great. Your comments on my thesis were very helpful and clear, offering good advice on how they might be altered. Also you picked up my inconsistencies across the document - something I struggled with. This was money well invested. The work was completed before the completion date. I would certainly recommend you to any colleagues looking for a proof reader or copy-editor.
KC, PhD student, Cardiac Rehabilitation
… it is indescribably helpful having you to work on my book. Thank you for really working with me on this and for being so respectful and understanding of my writing. Your kind and friendly approach made this whole experience so much easier than I was expecting.
TM, Self-publishing fiction author
Thank you so much for all your hard work and especially for sorting out all the formatting problems … I realise how complex this volume is so your skills and your flexibility are hugely appreciated.
FM, International development consultant
… you have a phenomenal level of medical knowledge! … superb at correcting my many lapses in concentration, even on specialist medical details
Dr BW, Medicolegal expert
I was very nervous about getting someone to proofread my novel because I was opening myself up to criticism and we writers are a sensitive breed! But you managed to make significant improvements to my novel yet always made me feel my writing was already great! Thank you for being such a kind, friendly and thoughtful person to work with – it makes so much difference.
MLB, Self-publishing author, Fiction
Etty is a great proofreader and copy-editor: she pays close attention to the text, is thorough in her reading, flags problems early and always returns proofs on time. I’m consistently impressed with her queries, suggestions and the care she takes. Added to this, she’s a joy to work with
EE, Focal Press
I have to say that I am extremely grateful for the amazing work you do and for my private work your input has been transformative.
Dr JW, Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist
I have had the pleasure of working with Etty for a number of years in the field of ‘Expert Witness’ assessments. Etty has meticulously proof read lengthy and complex reports to ensure that no minor or major error remains. The high quality of my reports has been remarked upon by barristers and judges and I have no doubt that this quality is a reflection of the methodical proof reading service that Etty provides.
I cannot recommend Etty highly enough to any professional who requires an experienced and committed proof reader.
Dr BH, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Expert Witness
Discovering the limitations of your own literacy is mildly disconcerting. However, throughout the editing of an entire novel, Etty never once made me feel foolish.
RJG, Author, fiction
… very efficient, friendly and dedicated editor. Etty has a particular eye for detail, continuity and flow. As a dyslexic student I found Etty to be very approachable and understanding of the challenges this places on academic writing, I was delighted with the result … I would strongly recommend Etty’s services and would certainly use them again
AV, Student in final year of nursing degree
Truly amazing & this means I'll need to spend less time with the lawyers!
Dr GT, Consultant in Pain Medicine, Expert witness
I have been working with Etty for more than a year and in every job she has been professional, thorough and pleasant. Communication has always been very easy and her skills and her punctuality make her a trustworthy partner. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending her work to anyone and I look forward to continuing to collaborate with her in the future
RCM, Portuguese copywriter and translator
I have entrusted Etty with many projects and am always absolutely certain I will receive the best quality work from her. She is very easy to communicate with and surprises me with the thoroughness of her work and the errors she notices that have slipped past several other people. My two colleagues, with whom she has also worked, speak very highly of her too
SP, Commissioning Editor, Routledge
Etty has proofread several projects for me onscreen and the quality of her work has always been of a very high standard … feedback from our authors is consistently very positive. I highly recommend her as a proofreader
I was always very pleased with the service I received from Etty and the quality of work she provided. I was always working to a very tight production schedule, which did sometimes run over, and Etty’s flexibility and ability to accommodate our requirements was always greatly appreciated. I would definitely recommend her services to others.
Editor, The Osteopath magazine, General Osteopathic Council
Transcription of various recordings: Top quality transcriber! Everything came back superclean, beautfully presented and set out. Any unclear passages were clearly timestamped and helpful suggestions were left. And teh proofreading is perfect. A bonus I wasn't expecting was the cover page with all its helpful information!
PW, Research Now
I'm very happy with what you've done with this essay. I thought it read well enough beforehand but without making major changes, you've made it sound much better, it flows beautifully and thank you for suggesting moving a couple of paragraphs to make it more logical. I will definitely come back.
JMB, Student, Lancaster University
Many thanks for the quick turnaround and feedback. Your proofing is a major help in cutting out grammatical errors and improving the report's quality and readability. It sounds much much better now! Your comments and queries were also really helpful! I appreciate all your ready-made suggestions which have saved me a huge amount of time. Thank you!
Dr MC, Clinical & Forensic Psychologist
