Seasonal gifts for editorial freelancers
18 December: Time-saving tools
Time is money for the freelance editorial professional, so anything that can save even a few minutes on a regular basis is worth having. Many editors and proofreaders swear by consistency-checking software PerfectIt, and it’s available for a one-off fee (with a discount for SfEP members). Another handy tool is TextExpander, which allows you to insert snippets of text, as well as images and other items, at the touch of a couple of keys. It works across all devices, and is available for an annual subscription. Why not give the gift of time this Christmas?
