Copy-editing & Proofreading

 

OUR SERVICE

If you have an already-written text, but you feel that it needs polishing up, a ‘once over’ by us could make an enormous difference.

For a pretty modest outlay, you will get a text that you will be proud to use in public – not something that could embarrass you and your business. We can do

  • Websites
  • Legal texts, e.g. contracts, powers-of-attorney, notices
  • Academic articles
  • Important letters
  • CVs/resumes

In addition, we can advise on copyright, exposure to defamation claims, and other legal issues.

WHY?

Nothing makes a bad impression faster than a badly-written text full of grammatical errors and poor, inappropriate wording. Sometimes, such texts are so badly written that they are impossible to understand. This is most often seen in translations done by online translation tools. While such tools are useful in helping us to (more or less) understand the basic message of a text written in a foreign language, they were never designed as a substitute for a properly written piece of text.

Think about this: even a text written by a native speaker of a language needs to be tidied up and polished – never mind something written by a machine!

When we see something translated into our own language by an online translation tool, we laugh about it. Why, then, should we trust such tools to translate from our language into another? Or even a human who is not a native-speaker? In the professional translating industry, translations are normally either done by a native speakers of the target language, or sent to one for proofreading & editing.

HOW?

Whether you merely require a simple proofread to iron out spelling, punctuation and grammar mistakes, or a large-scale editing job to make the whole text more presentable, we are in a position to help. In every editing job we do, we painstakingly eliminate all the common errors and poor writing practices. The end result is a high-quality, professional-looking text that will perfectly serve the purpose for which it was written.

All you have to do is send us your rough text (strictest confidentiality assured), stating what you would like done, i.e. simple proofread, full edit or even a re-write, and we will give you an estimate of both time and cost. Once we receive proof of payment, we will then start work, and at every stage, we will consult with you to ensure that what we write is exactly what you want.

We are always happy to provide samples of what we can do.

Our rates are competitive, mainly thanks to our fast turnaround time, and we can easily be paid from most parts of the world by direct bank transfer or, for smaller jobs, through Skrill.
