Introduction

A document that is poorly written or contains errors can detract from the message you are trying to get across, whether it is academic text, marketing material, a management procedure or an annual report. Copyediting and proofreading will look for consistency in language and presentation, as well as correcting any errors in the text, images and layout. Similarly, top quality copywriting will result in informative and accessible content. The aim is to help you establish a professional image and effectively engage with your audience.

What clients say

From an academic:

“Now that my book-editing project is completed I want to thank you for your excellent work on it. You struck just the right balance between making corrections and spotting textual issues. And you accomplished this work with exemplary promptness and efficiency. I would be glad to come to you again with this sort of project.” — Dr. Nicholas Rescher, University of Pittsburgh

From a publisher:

“I’m very happy with the quality of the work. As well as taking care of the nuts and bolts of the job, James challenges points in the manuscript that need further clarification, and spots narrative inconsistencies as part and parcel of his proofing service.”
— Chris Lomas, Senior Editor at Trigger Publishing

From a student:

“James helped me with proofreading several assignments while I was studying at university. I am fluent in English but it is my second language and therefore I asked him to check my text for incorrect grammar, sentence structure and overall English coherence of the content. He provided a very helpful service to a high standard and always delivered on time.”
— Thomas Untereiner, MSc student
