It has the basics to start working as an Editor / Proofreader but I think it needs to have more content on how to edit, revise and proofread.

The course matches 100% its purpose. It contains plenty of useful information, tips and so many things you need to know if you are or want to work as an editor/proofreader.

I was hoping that stuff on the screen would be a little bit bigger as I hardly saw what was on there. Second of all I was hoping maybe there would be some practice quizzes for proofreading and editing to show what we know or like a section test. Well, the reason why I am saying this is for me to practice before I become a professional proofreader or editor.

Having taken Robert's freelance translator course, I had high expectations for this one. These were well founded. The course was concise and user friendly, yet thorough and actionable. I am quite an experienced editor and have got exactly what I need to apply these skills to the field of translation. In sum, I could not recommend this course more highly!
