ThoroughProof Journey

Our Transition from Freelancing to a Company

Our Story

Aside from my natural design as a perfectionist (I am Melancholy), my further study of grammar, punctuation and writing has made me more conscious of grammatical blunders, weak sentence constructions, poor paragraphing, wrong punctuations and capitalization in written materials.

I notice these errors as I read articles, blog posts, motivational books, brochures, tracts and even some textbooks.

In 2016, I decided to take my first course on editing and proofreading to prepare me to edit more properly. Since then, I have taken even more courses, read books on editing and writing to prepare myself to become a professional editor.

I have used my skills and knowledge to serve friends, preachers, bloggers, publishers and copywriters as a freelancer. Currently, I have edited over 198 blog posts, 25 books, 3 corporate profiles, 5 proposals, 4 journal articles for publication and transcribed over 5 hours audio.

As I got client’s comment on my editing prowess, I feel the need to create a platform to serve more people with my skill.

I engaged Chidinma's expertise when doing my projects during my one-year social service at Ondo state; in the write-up, editing and proofreading of my proposals, sponsorship letters. I must commend that she actually goes the extra mile to dot all "I"s and cross all "T"s making certain the client is satisfied."

FAQs

Most Frequent Questions and Answers

Of course, you do. Even when you read a content you created a thousand and one times, you will still need a professional second eye to look through it before you send it to press or click the publish button, especially if you care about getting a masterpiece at the end of the day; something you would be proud to showcase.

Here’s why. Our minds have a way of reading what is in our head instead of what is on paper. Besides, you need a second eye that will give you an overall impression of your content.

As long as your friend is not trained to identify errors in written contents, he cannot edit your content excellently. You can hand in your manuscript for a content review to a friend if your content is related to his field of practice, but not for editing. Editors are trained.

I cannot promise you that no error would be found in your manuscript after editing it. However, I will do my possible best to ensure all errors are identified and eliminated. Unfortunately, I do not offer refunds should you find an error in your manuscript after we have concluded the project.  

Every manuscript needs to be edited and proofread. Editing and proofreading are two different things and involves two different processes.

To edit a manuscript means to go through the manuscript, eliminating grammatical errors and ensuring that the facts are accurately written. It is the duty of an editor to ensure there is a logical flow of thoughts and the manuscript is readable.

This is different from what a proofreader does. A proofreader does more of a surface work; checking for inconsistencies in text and numeration, spelling and punctuation errors, but an editor does more in-depth work; confirming dates and scriptures (for a Christian genre), correcting grammatical errors, syntax errors and readability issues.

We have a general rate for editing and proofreading which is between #2 per and #3 per word, with #2 and #3 at the extreme ends for proofreading and editing respectively. However, we often prefer to treat each manuscript individually by requesting to see a sample of the manuscript (a portion), to ascertain how well-written it is and the degree of work it requires.

Microsoft Word is my preferred file format. However, I can work with .pdf files as well.

Sure, I am. I can stretch myself to beat deadlines, but it has to be an attainable deadline.
