Nicola Becker – Experienced Proofreader

I am a freelance proofreader with over ten years of writing and editorial experience. I have worked on a wide range of publications, from trade journals and market reports to charity newsletters, training materials and websites.

Quality Control

I love to bring out the best in the texts that I work on, enhancing their quality and improving consistency. I have experience in making texts easy to read and can review text to ensure clear communication.

If you want to polish up the English in your document, I can help. I have experience in proofreading texts written by multilingual authors and written for multicultural audiences.

Professional Service

I strive for the highest professional standards. I have proofreading qualifications from the Publishing Training Centre and the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP). I am an intermediate member of the CIEP and adhere to their Code of Practice for editorial professionals.
