Susanne Toth

Precise Proofreading

About: Hello! I’m Susanne, and I’m excited to have a career that combines my knowledge of punctuation and grammar with my passion for reading! I have been an avid reader throughout my life. One of my favorite childhood memories is reading on our front porch during rainstorms. Getting lost in a book while hearing the rain was heaven for me! Mystery, fiction, biography, psychology, etc… I love them all! Along with my keen eye for detail, I have turned into the grammar/spelling police amongst my friends and co-workers. I would love to be the second set of eyes for your transcripts so you can take a break and have less stress!

Special skills/experience: While my professional career started in corporate banking, I realized that I didn’t find it very interesting. l preferred to work in a way that helps people, so most of my positions have been focused on client service. I find it rewarding to be able to develop friendly relationships with clients, and then I can focus my services to their preferences.

I’ve always been the one to find punctuation and spelling errors and I enjoy doing some research for projects, as I consider myself a lifelong learner!

Sheila Prochnow

S Prochnow Proofreader

About: I’m Sheila, the “S” in S Prochnow Proofreader, and I deliver peace of mind to hardworking court reporters who need prompt, reliable, accurate PDF proofreading. I’ve been a word nerd and grammar geek ever since I was a kid watching Schoolhouse Rock. My professional experience includes three years proofreading legal and financial document translations at a multinational accounting firm, two years as a freelance general proofreader, and three years as a university language testing researcher.

Special skills/experience: Have you ever noticed when you read a transcript over and over that everything starts to blur together, and your eye skips over small details like missing words and spelling or punctuation errors? Scientists call this “typo blindness.” It happens because your highly efficient brain already knows the correct details and fills them in for you. Your solution? Call in an experienced proofreader with a sharp eye for detail (like me!). I catch the tiny errors your busy eyes can no longer see, and make clear annotations to your transcript so you can finalize it with confidence and assurance.

Fun facts: Reading is my #1 pastime: I love escaping into graphic novels, humorous essays, and Japanese crime fiction. I’m a big fan of Wes Anderson movies, and I’ll watch anything starring Frances McDormand. Foods I’m obsessed with are fresh apples from my home state (Michigan), grass-fed rib eyes, and real croissants.
