J &T Dorrington for Writing, Editing and Proofreading
J & T Dorrington is perfectly suited to any organisation or writer that needs proofreading, editing and/or writing services. If you are a busy business owner, writer or student that needs proofing, editing or writing services, then we offer just the service you are looking for.
We can create, edit or proofread books, eBooks, website copy, documents, theses and dissertations, resumés and pretty much anything else you can think of, and will ensure that your work is shown in the best light.
You will notice that we don’t quote prices on our site. The reason for this is that every document is different and every writer writes to a different standard. The result is that some documents will take longer to proof or edit than others.
Our approach, therefore, is to assess either part or all of the work submitted before working out our quotation. Once we have seen a sample of the text and have formed a good idea of the amount of work to be undertaken, we will be in a position to present a quotation together with a breakdown of the work involved.
The most important aspects to focus on when editing a document are:
Accuracy of grammar, syntax and punctuation
Spelling and typographical errors
Consistency (e.g. of capitalisation, italics, hyphenation, abbreviations)
Comprehensibility and clarity of writing
Duplication or undue repetition of words, expressions or ideas
Simplification of text (e.g. by the use of shorter sentences or bullets where appropriate)
Alternative or more appropriate vocabulary or phrasing (i.e. considering the level or standard of your readers
