Do you need proofreading or editing services?

What is proofreading?

When you have finished your writing and need someone to check the spelling, punctuation and syntax, then what you need is proofreading. Originally, proofreading was done to ensure that there were no mistakes in the printed documents. The proof was the document that was sent to the publisher and the reading of the proof was done by proofreaders.

Today, it is equally important to ensure that flawless copies of your work are read by clients, potential customers, your colleagues, and bosses. Typos reflect poorly on the author and grammatical errors could cost you your next big job.

Our proofreaders will make sure that your copy is error-free and, if necessary, will point you to any additional errors that you need to address.

Make sure your work reflects the effort you put into it. Make sure that what you write makes a diference.

What is editing?

Do you need help with your disposition? Do you need to improve the clarity of your text? Do you want it to be easier to read or understand?

An editor will help you with all of these things. Editing is more exhaustive than proofreading. Whereas proofreaders ensure that there are no textual errors in your manuscript, editors help you improve your text. Editors also proofread the text and make sure that the end results looks great.

Based on our experience, we want to give you a tip:
Before assigning a job to an editor, make sure that the editor knows your field.

Someone who doesn't know what you are writing about is less likely to edit your manuscript the way it should be done. This is why we will never accept an editing assignment unless we have the experience - so we can help you make your copy great.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

 

When you are done with your writing you can send us a sample of your text through the contact form to get a free cost estimate. If you are writing a manuscript or a thesis you can send your introduction. Tell us how many words you think the final product will have and if you have a specific deadline.

In return we will send you a swiftly proofread and edited version of your text using the MS Word review function. Based on this assessment we will give you a cost estimate and the amount of time needed to proofread or edit your text. When the terms have been accepted we will proofread and edit your full text in detail.

All corrections are done using the MS Word review function. It is your responsibility to go through the document and accept the changes and edit the text according to the comments and suggestions in the comment section of the document. When you are done you will have the opportunity to send the document back for a second review.

Some companies charge per word. Others give flat rates depending on the type of document.

We think these cost models are unfair. Instead, we charge per hour that we spend on improving your text. This means that you pay for personal service and that if you are a good writer you will pay less than a bad writer and that your price will not depend on the quality of work of other writers.

To get a free cost estimate for your manuscript, send us a sample of your text (maximum one page).

The amount of time needed to proofread and edit your document will depend on the type and subject of your manuscript, the quality of the original writing, and the availability of the proofreader.

Most essays can be returned the next day, while scientific journal articles are returned on average 48 h after we receive it. A thesis usually requires one week turnaround time. However, if the thesis is not finished one week before you need to submit it for printing you can also send it in parts (whole chapters).

Please contact us in advance to book a time slot for your degree project or thesis, so you can be sure that we can proofread and edit it in time.
