Give your website every chance of being found by your target audience and ensure they stick around once they arrive. My website proofreading and editing services can help you.

I can edit your web content before you upload it to your site, or proofread it in a browser either before you launch or once your site is live.

My web editing and proofreading services check for issues with grammar, spelling, punctuation and flow through the lens of SEO, accessibility and usability.

My areas of expertise

Writing for the web

Writing for the web is different from writing for print. I will check your content for:

  • conciseness
  • scannability
  • audience and brand relevance

I will also carry out a conventional edit, checking for aspects including:

  • issues with grammar, spelling and punctuation
  • word choice and flow
  • factual accuracy
  • and much more

SEO, accessibility and usability

If optimised for the web and search engines, your website content can help you feature higher in search results and bring your products or services to a wider audience.

I will check your website is working for you and giving your business every chance of success.

Depending on the service you require, I will check for:

  • SEO issues
  • accessibility issues
  • where usability can be improved
  • and much more

Training and credentials

Editing isn’t a regulated industry. It can be difficult to know which editors you can trust to treat your website with care and produce a high-quality edit or proofread.

I’m a Professional-level member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) and have an MA in modern languages from the University of Oxford.

I have passed several CIEP courses and have worked on many websites for previous clients from a wide range of industries, including The Royal Mint and universities such as Oxford, Cambridge and Cardiff.

I will proofread your website on desktop and a mobile device, either before you launch it or once it is already live. I will check for language issues and make suggestions to improve your site’s SEO, accessibility and usability.

Debbie was a pleasure to work with. She was extremely communicative and provided great feedback on the changes she was making and the reasons for the changes.

She caught mistakes, asked questions about content to ensure that the content reflected what was trying to be conveyed, she did research, she optimized the content for SEO, and she reviewed/amended to ensure consistency throughout the content.

Debbie helped us improve localisation of the UK version of our website. Our initial concern was with proofreading the English language, but Debbie proactively suggested changes to the overall content and UX. She clearly understood the bigger picture.

Debbie communicated consistently, provided regular updates, and suggested changes to our approach. 110% satisfaction with the job she did, would highly recommend to anyone.
