I am Sarah Patey, trading as Le Mot Juste – a name chosen because of the value I place on words, detail and accuracy.

What do I offer?

For your text, I offer:

  • a trained and experienced professional eye
  • careful attention to detail and clarity
  • a new pair of eyes to ensure your text is effective

To you, the client, I offer:

  • a prompt and affordable service
  • an approachable expert
  • clarity on deadlines and costs

I provide specialist services to publishers and to academics and students:

  • proofreading in English, French and German
  • copy-editing in English

(If you are wondering about the difference between these two, the website of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders provides helpful descriptions of proofreading and copy-editing.)

  • translation from French and German into English
  • development editing (languages, history)
