How we proofread and edit texts

Our experienced editors rigorously review and comprehensively improve your text. Through accurate proofreading and intuitive editing, we add real, measurable value to the quality of your writing.

  • Diction, tone, and register

    Where appropriate, our editors will amend diction to improve the academic tone and register of your document. For non-academic documents, we aim to ensure that your word choice is tailored to the document’s purpose and intended audience.

  • Logic and clarity

    Logic and clarity are central to successful writing. Our editors will correct problems with logic and clarity where possible and provide feedback and guidance on areas that need the author’s attention.

  • Sentence structure and awkward phrasing

    We address problems with sentence construction and awkward phrasing to ensure that your writing is coherent and logical. For ESL writers, we focus on correcting problems with idiom and syntax, ensuring that your work reads like that of a native speaker.

  • Redundancy, repetition, and wordiness

    Conciseness is vital to successful academic writing. Our editors will analyze your writing and correct wordiness, repetition, and redundancy.

  • Grammar and punctuation

    We will proofread your writing to correct problems with grammar, punctuation, and spelling. We target incorrect punctuation, misused articles, run-on sentences, inappropriate conjunctions, comma splices, subject–verb agreement issues, dangling modifiers, faulty parallelism, and other issues.

  • Special requests

    We’ll gladly accommodate any special requests or requirements that you may have. If you have specific style or editorial guidelines you’d like us to use (e.g., APA, Chicago, MLA), just let us know in the order notes.
