Word processors frequently contain a built-in thesaurus, grammar checker and spell checker as well as font and formatting functions that help style and produce written materials. These programs can also be used to create templates to help automate written communication within a business, while desktop publishing software may be used to create stunning written displays and professional reports.

    Proofreader

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 1

    Having been associated with oDesk for about two years, I have worked on numerous projects with several clients and have received excellent reviews from each of them. I have an innate talent for noticing grammatical and punctuation errors in anything I read. I also have a voracious love for the written word, whether it be fiction, nonfiction, letters, manuals, or anything. I like to say that errors tend to "jump off the page at me." It slows me down when I am reading for pleasure but it becomes a tremendous asset when I am proofreading any document or manuscript. It does show my attention to detail, which I believe is very important in this line of work. I don't wish to change what I am reading. My only desire is to make it better, more readable, more understandable. An example of this is the book, "My Paranormal Diaries," written by Deborah Cihon, which has received several positive reviews. She is not a writer and depended heavily on my input in making her book easier to read while still retaining her own voice. She was very pleased with my work and has other projects in the works, which I will assist her in preparing for publication as well. I have greatly enjoyed all the proofreading work I have done and wish to continue to help people improve their own writings, be they letters, manuscripts, training or instruction manuals, or otherwise. I am a dedicated, persistent, and professional individual, and I am determined to give my absolute best to any client who employs my services.

    I am a university graduate with a BSc. in Psychology and a focus in neuroscience. In addition to this, I currently work part-time at my university as a writing tutor and a teaching assistant.
