Freelance proofreading services


Maria Rasmussen Proofreading helps ensure your written work is easy to read, punctuation savvy, and mindful of proper formatting – in a word, outstanding.



The proceedings have been documented verbatim, the job has been scoped, and now it’s time for the transcript to be fine-tuned by a proofreader.


Before I look at your work, I ask you to fill out a preference sheet. In order to make appropriate corrections, I use this sheet as well as your preferred reference book (Morson’s English Guide for Court Reporters; Margie Wakeman Wells’s Bad Grammar/Good Punctuation; The Gregg Reference Manual; or The Chicago Manual of Style). I also use the Merriam-Webster dictionary.


Your transcript will be corrected in PDF format. I make note of distracting mistakes, such as inconsistent spelling, missing or misused words, and punctuation errors. I pay attention to formatting guidelines to make sure your cover, appearance, index, and certificate pages look their best. You can rest assured knowing that your proofreader examines the accuracy of exhibits, page numbers, dates, legal terms, and more.


After the transcript is annotated, I send the corrections to you in PDF format via email. Errors are marked on the page in red text and yellow highlighting.

A beautifully crafted piece of writing contributes to the credibility that readers attribute to your brand. Partner with an experienced proofreader so that your work continues to be known for its eloquence and not for its place in the land of embarrassing memes.

Your document will be annotated in PDF format and returned to you via email as a PDF that displays corrections in red text and yellow highlighting. I’m also happy to proofread in Google Docs, if you prefer.

Thousands of pages corrected. Infinite passion for serving court reporters and writers.

My experience includes four years at California State University as an instructional student assistant. Through personalized, one-on-one sessions, I guided hundreds of undergraduate and graduate students as they improved their writing abilities. I decided to take my experience and skills to the realm of professional proofreading because of my love for helping creators to share their work with confidence.

I earned both my BA and MA in English literature from CSU. Please visit my LinkedIn profile for details about my education and experience.

Based in Los Angeles, California
