Better results from your writing

Proof reading

Premium quality proofreading and editing services that are fast, easy to order and affordable. Open 24/7 all year round.

If you're looking for a cheap, basic and rushed proofreading service, we suggest you stop reading now and look elsewhere - though we advise you to be vigilant of scam websites.

If, however, you are looking for a premium quality review and improvement of your writing at a good value price, we can help. 

For students:

If you do not receive significant improvements to the standard of your written English from our service, we will give you a full refund.* 

We can ensure that you achieve a higher grade through our academic editing service by eradicating flaws of English and improving academic tone.

Importantly, our methods are university-friendly in that we adhere to standard university guidelines and will not be involved in any plagiarism.

For academics:

We guarantee that your manuscript will meet all required standards of English quality.**

Our editors have track records of helping authors and researchers achieve publication. They have the skills and expertise to ensure that your manuscript is well prepared for submission to journals and publishing houses.

For private individuals, businesses and organisations:

For individuals, businesses and organisations, our performance is measured by your satisfaction.

We have helped businesses and organisations, from SMEs to large multinationals such as Barclays, the European Union (EU) and NHS, with their English editing needs for company communications, reports, proposals, contracts and more.

For private individuals, whether you need a CV/Resume, job application or other piece of writing reviewed, we can ensure your writing is polished and professional.
