It is more important today than ever that communication of every type is clear and error-free. This is especially true within the court reporting world, where seemingly small errors can make a significant impact. Finding these errors is time-consuming and prevents many court reporters from taking on a larger volume of work. As a professional transcript proofreader, I am able to alleviate self-proofing time constraints and maximize reporters’ output.
I have read thousands of transcript pages; from EUOs to depositions to expert testimonials. I correct basic punctuation and transposition errors, but I also check for formatting inconsistencies and contextual clarity. Please see some other common errors I proofread for, below:
I utilize Morson’s English Guide for Court Reporters, NCRA guidelines, The Gregg Reference Manual, and Margie Wakeman Well’s Court Reporting: Bad Grammar/Good Punctuation as my resources. I also correct according to each individual reporter’s personal preferences.
