👉 Send me your text in Word format (or another text processing software such as Google Docs or Libre Office) in an unlocked document before placing your order, and I will advise you on the options to choose based on its length and other editorial options (e.g., simple formatting, bibliography revision).
If none of the options suit you, I will guide you based on the text length, sometimes combining multiple options.
👉 For 5 €, I proofread 250 words (basic option).

Note: I do not handle highly elaborate formatting (with numerous diagrams, illustrations, and hundreds of photos).

Thank you very much for your professionalism, punctuality, and flexibility. The work is meticulous and well done. I am happy to have collaborated with you!

Very satisfied with my order: completed on time and with great attention to detail. I highly recommend getting professional proofreading before publication, as the added value is noticeable (consistency of verb tenses, punctuation correction, formatting, etc.).
NathalieNabarro (Belgium), November 2022
The corrections are relevant, interesting, and thought-provoking. Excellent quality of work and communication. It is a talent to understand what each author wants to convey. I also improve with each correction. A big thank you! And I highly recommend Aude as a proofreader without hesitation.
