Rachel’s round-up of the year – 2023

Accuracy Matters round-up of the year – 2023

This year was one of big change and big ambition for Accuracy Matters. We worked on more than 300 projects for clients, from display panels of less than 150 words, right through to 800-page reports, ranging from proofreading through to detailed drafting projects and delivering editorial training courses, both in person and online.

5 ways to put yourself in your reader’s shoes

5 ways to put yourself in your reader’s shoes

When I first started working in publishing, I attended some of the excellent training courses at the Publishing Training Centre. An image that has stuck in my head ever since is a little like the angel and devil on your shoulder – except, for editors/proofreaders, it’s the author and the reader – I’ll leave you […]

Why does ISO 9001 certification matter to us?

ISO 9001

In today’s world, it’s crucial to maintain high standards, especially when it comes to servicing clients. ISO 9001:2015, the international standard for quality management systems, serves as a powerful tool to demonstrate commitment to quality, customer satisfaction and continuous improvement. That’s exactly why we were recertified to ISO 9001 in October 2022. In this blog […]

Does proofreading include editing?

At Accuracy Matters, one question we often get asked is what’s included in a proofread, and whether proofreading includes editing. That’s why in this blog, we’re exploring the whole editorial process to distinguish the main differences between the two. To begin, it might be helpful to give an overview of the whole editorial process from blank page […]

Five ways to successfully proofread your own writing

Simple steps to level up your ability to proofread your own work to ensure clear and consistent communication. I’ve been proofreading for 20 years.

Proofreading in 2122

If the DeLorean were to spit me out in 2122, I wonder what the role of proofreading might look like – and would I recognise any of it?

Working for nongovernmental and intergovernmental organisations

We’re immensely proud of our work for nongovernmental and intergovernmental organisations. Whether it’s improving education for children in sub-Saharan Africa, analysing school feeding programmes in Myanmar, or promoting democracy and human rights across the world, there’s always a sense of achievement and tangible impact to the work that we’re supporting.

The art of ‘matchmaking’ freelancers

Finding the right fit for editorial work can be a tricky process. We know from past feedback that some organisations have completely given up on finding an editor or proofreader because of too many bad experiences when trying to outsource work. But when it works it’s like magic.
