Clear, Concise Writing

Clear, concise, error-free writing is vital in all walks of life, whether you’re a student, a professional, or a creative writer. It isn’t always easy to edit your own work, though, so errors can slip in and lessen the impact of your writing. But our expert proofreaders can correct any errors in your text, as well as make sure your writing reads clearly and smoothly.

What Does Proofreading Involve?

Our professional proofreading service includes the following:

  • Correcting grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors
  • Tweaking sentences to ensure that they flow smoothly
  • Adapting vocabulary to suit the document type and purpose
  • Removing repetition and editing for concision
  • Fixing inconsistencies, including in capitalisation and punctuation 
  • Highlighting unclear sentences and suggesting corrections
  • Where applicable, checking that citations and references are clear and correct

In short, our proofreading is about making sure you can communicate your meaning as clearly and effectively as possible. This makes it great for putting a final polish on your work.

Please note: Increasing or decreasing a document’s word count is not included in our proofreading service.

Proofreading vs Copy Editing

You may have heard both of these terms, but how are they different? Technically, copy editing differs from proofreading in the traditional sense. In the old days:

  • ‘Proofreading’ meant checking a printed proof. This ‘proof’ was an early version of a typeset text, so all a proofreader would do is look for typos.
  • ‘Copy editing’ was the last step in the editing process before a text was typeset. It usually involved editing a document so that it followed a specific style guide.

This distinction is looser with most modern proofreading services. For example, we combine traditional proofreading with some elements of copy editing. But proofreading is always about making minor changes.
