<strike>Any suggestion for a native US proof reading service with experience in proof reading software documentation and website copy?
Your help would be very much appreciated.

How about a Canadian? One of my projects was technical reviewer for a recent book on SQL Server. Of necessity, I ended up doing a certain amount of proofreading. My E-mail is <email@example.com>.

>Canadian is fine as well.
Just watch out for him adding an 'Ay' into every other sentence. ;0)

By coincidence, I worked with a Canadian freelancer that delivered very good results on multiple occasions. He has since started his own company though, but I think asking won't hurt. Drop me an email if interested.

"adding an 'Ay' into every other sentence"
Here in the colonies, we spell it "eh." Eh should always end the sentence, and one's voice is lifted when saying it, regardless if the sentence is a question or a statement. Since Canadians are less loquacious than Americans, we use "eh" instead of "you know." While "eh" is intended to solicit acknowledgement from the listener, it is not actually necessary to say anything in response to "eh." Raising an eyebrow (or bottle of beer) or tugging on your toque is sufficient to let the speaker know that you heard and understood his pearl of wisdom. When it is -40 outside, the longer you can keep your mouth closed, the better.
Thank you for educating me. ;0)
