Proofreading is important because any writing intended for marking, review or publication must communicate its message as clearly as possible. For writing to be clear, it must be free of spelling, grammar or punctuation errors and inconsistencies in language, as these mistakes undermine the impact of the writing.
When to choose Proofreading
What you get
You will receive a document with all writing mistakes corrected that you can submit or publish with confidence.
We include free revisions and work with you to refine the wording and make final adjustments until your document is ready for submission or publication.
Our different approach
You will work with the same member of our team throughout, and our approach is flexible to suit your needs.
We are not an agency and we do not employ freelancers. This allows us to keep our prices lower.
Types of document
Any type of document can be proofread, including academic writing, business documents and manuscripts.
We work with documents in Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, Google Docs, Apple Pages, LaTeX and PDF.
Corrections for error-free English
We correct all spelling, grammar, punctuation and typographical errors, including citation style where applicable. We also check critical details such as embedded links and the names of people, places and products.
Where we see inconsistencies or wording that is unclear, we use the comments feature to recommend improvements.
Changes to your document
In Microsoft Word, Google Docs and Apple Pages, we use track changes so you can see what we have corrected and you keep control of your document.
We mark up corrections by hand on PDF and PowerPoint documents using a tablet and pen, as there is no equivalent of track changes in these formats. We edit LaTeX files directly and can provide a Word copy showing the changes we have made.
We use a variety of technologies but our preference is Microsoft Office with its advanced and straightforward collaborative editing tools.
We use Microsoft security-hardened services for protecting your material. We delete all your files 30 days after completing your work.
