True Text Proofreading was founded by Lara Sweeney to provide exceptional proofreading, copy-editing and creative writing services for video games, computing and other media.
As an industry professional with over fifteen years production experience at companies including: Interplay, Sega, Squaresoft, Activision, Lionhead,
Creative Assembly, Pandemic, Firemint and EA (as well as being an avid gamer myself!) I have an intimate knowledge of both the development and publishing processes. Unlike most proofreaders, editors or writers, my background in gaming and game development gives me a unique and invaluable insight into the text requirements facing developers, so you won't need to spend hours explaining video game basics, gaming terminology or the importance of TRCs to me.

Text is an often overlooked and under-rated part of game development that is frequently left until the last minute - but getting your text right can make all the difference! The written word is a valuable part of communication in games and, even if your game communicates largely through images, text is still likely to be one of the first things that your audience sees.
If your schedule is too tight, resources too stretched, or if words are just not your thing, then you may not be expressing yourself appropriately or presenting your content in its best light. This is where True Text Proofreading comes in; words are MY thing!
I'll bring your game to beautiful life with rich and vibrant lore and dialogue, or refine and polish your own words until they resound with crystal clarity and exude effortless excellence. The attention and care with which you create your game will be apparent to your players - get it right and players become loyal fans.
Don't rely on spellcheckers that frequently miss errors and detract from your hard work. If you want your text to be special, hire a specialist! With my passion and skill for writing and polishing words, I will carefully craft or enhance your text - your message - as required. I am a respectful proofreader and editor, so you can trust that your text's original meaning and the author's voice will be retained throughout.
When we work together, I become part of your team and will invest my heart and soul in your project. I will happily spend extra hours playing your game with the goal of becoming as familiar with it as any team member sitting in your office. I care about your game and your company's reputation and will go above and beyond to ensure that both are gleaming with greatness and beyond reproach.
I pride myself on the exceptionally high standard of work I deliver and take great pains to ensure the accuracy and quality of everything I write or review. I also understand intimately the pressures faced by developers and that sometimes 'Yesterday!' is a valid deadline. When you don't have time for proofreading, I DO!
If you need some dialogue created, or someone to dream up background stories for your game world and characters; if you need game manuals and help pages written; or you just want your existing text proofread and edited by someone with a careful pen, tirelessly zealous attention to detail and both a passion for and understanding of gaming and the development process - schedule in some Lara Time and your troubles will disappear, leaving you free to focus on making your game!
