How we proofread and edit texts

Our experienced editors can deliver a rigorous review and comprehensive
improvement of your text. Through accurate proofreading and intuitive editing, we
seek to add real, measurable value to the quality of your writing.

Improved style and appropriate tone

  • Lexis and vocabulary

    Where suitable, our editors will introduce changes to the lexis/vocabulary to improve the academic tone and style of a document. For non-academic documents, we aim to ensure that word choice is suited to the purpose and readership of the writing.

  • Logic and clarity

    Issues with logic and clarity are important areas of consideration for our editors. We will look to fix such issues that can be repaired and provide feedback and guidance on areas that need the author’s attention.

  • Sentence structure and awkward phrasing

    We will correct issues related to improper sentence construction and awkward phrasing to ensure that your writing reads in a coherent and logic manner.

  • Redundancy, repetition, and wordiness

    Saying more with less is an important nuance of successful academic writing. Our editors will analyze your writing and make corrections to excessive wordiness, repetition, and redundancy.

  • Grammar and punctuation

    We will proofread your writing to correct errors related to grammar, punctuation, and spelling. We target errors such as misused articles, run-on sentences, incorrect coordinating conjunctions, comma splices, verb-subject agreement issues, dangling participles, split infinitives, and other issues.

  • Special requests

    We are happy to accommodate any special requests or requirements that you may have for the editor. For example, if you have specific style/editorial guidelines that you want us to work to (e.g., APA, Chicago, MLA, etc.) we are happy to oblige.
