Peter is everything we could want in a proofreader. He’s exacting, bilingual, and never seems to miss a comma or neglect to flag an incorrect set of quotation marks. He actually got his job because he took a copy of the magazine and marked everything he saw wrong in it with red pen, then mailed it to Marcia Todd with a note asking to be our proofer. A lot of nerve, but once she crawled back down from the ceiling, Marcia could see that his help was much needed. He’s been a fixture with us ever since, and more than one company has been contacted when he saw typos on their websites when he was proofing Buyer’s Guide listings (yes, he checks every single link!) We couldn’t get by without him.
