Hey there, my court reporter friend!
- Up to your eyeballs in transcripts?
- Tired of reporting, scoping…and then proofreading that same deposition or voir dire again?
- Ready to free up your time to take more cases or maybe catch up on your sleep?
If you are, then you’re in the right place. I can help! I’m a proofreader just for you, the busy court reporter.
What I can do for you
You don’t have time to stress over your transcripts.
So here’s how I can make your transcripts perfect in four super easy steps.
- Email me your PDF transcript.
- Let me know your turnaround time (same-day to three-day turnaround available!).
- I proof your transcript by making easily readable annotations.
- I send your transcript back on time.
BONUS: I proofread for readability and to your preference — which means it looks and reads just how you like it.
And that’s it! Easy peasy.
What manuals do you reference?
I use Merriam-Webster, The Gregg Reference Manual (11th Edition), Morson’s, and your preferences.
Do you keep my preferences in mind when you proofread?
I sure do! That’s my specialty actually — proofreading so there are no errors AND the transcript is in your style. I’m here to make you look good.
Do you take feedback?
Yes! I want to make this a super easy process for you and you get back the transcripts you like. So I’m definitely open to feedback you have to make that happen.
Do you proofread to audio?
I will spot check occasional words (one or two per transcript) as necessary, but as a general rule, I do not proofread to audio.
Do you have a weekly page limit?
I do not. If you have a transcript (or group of transcripts) of 300+ pages, please confirm with me your turnaround time so I can plan to get it finished in time!
I LOVE working with court reporters and helping make their lives easier — I feel like my court reporters I proofread for have become friends, not just work associates.

I’m Elizabeth Wiegner, and I am SO excited you stopped by so we could meet! I’ve been a proofreader for nearly 15 years, and I love everything about it. It’s pretty fun to catch typos and grammar errors so my clients can turn in transcripts they’re proud of.
But my favorite part is getting to work with you. Life + work is busy and a little crazy at times. Having a friend in your corner goes a long way.
I live in Oklahoma, but I proofread across the United States! I like proofreading so much that I even have a course that teaches other grammar lovers how to proof as a side hustle too.
I have three cats who double as coworkers. My husband, Jonathan, is a strength coach, and he’s my entire world. Together we powerlift, play Eurogames, and try out local restaurants. We only need counseling during college football season (Roll Tide!). Most importantly, we live for Christ and have our existence because of and for Him.
Thank you for being here! Email me if you have questions about proofreading, would like to get your transcript proofed, or want to share cat pictures!
