    Firstly, I wasn’t sure which area to post this to so I apologise if it’s in the wrong spot.
    If there are any forum members here working in this field, I would be grateful if they would allow me to PM or email them with a couple of questions I have.

    Thank you

    Mea culpa :)

    I’m trying to ascertain whether people working in this field tend to offer editing and proofreading as part of their service. Googling suggests it’s pretty hit and miss.

    I would suggest they try to offer these services, but need need specific and skilled staff to do that aspect. This would, hopefully be highlighted on their website. ;)

    I have seen some (including in Govt departments) where this is not done and the results are , well not the best….

    Hi Tracey,
    generally, and I think most designers/desktop publishers would agree, the copy provided is the copy we use.
    I correct grammar and typos etc on the fly, but dont offer that as part of the service. When I send a proof to a client for “proofing” it is their responsibility to check for errors.
