How I Proofread & What To Expect.
E-mail your clean scoped work to me in PDF format.
For the proofreading process, I will respond as soon as I receive your e-mail confirming the rates that I will charge you and the due date of that assignment. For more substantial jobs over 200 pages, please send it to me in sections of 100 pages at a time rather than holding on to the job until you’ve completed your work. If you prefer you can also make your batches when the judge breaks for recess or adjourns. That way, as you’re working on a portion, I can get a head start, and we can get through the case faster together. Think of me as an extension of you. This is how I work to help you succeed.
Style & Resources:
I will have each client complete a preference style sheet. This sheet will be a hierarchy to all of my other resources. The sheet is available at the bottom of this page.
Morson’s English Guide for Court Reporters, Court Reporting: Bad Grammar/Good Punctuation, The Gregg Reference Manual, The Chicago Manual of Style, Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary. Names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and unfamiliar technical terminology will be verified using various online resources.
I will mark all of my corrections and suggestions in red and yellow markings. Then I will only return the annotated pages. You will also receive a separate list of the changes that I made to your transcript via e-mail.
