Text editing and proofreading services

We can check editorial style, proofread and edit the text for a low literacy level, massively improving wide‑spread understanding. We have helped some of our clients put together and define editorial style guides for websites, academic journals and publications, that reduces the time needed in the future, to clear‑up editorial issues and results in text that is easier-to-understand. Our suggestions and advice are based on reading books, journals, good industry practice, plain English, and evidence, but above all to maximise wide‑spread comprehension. We have found editing and rewriting works better, when it is given an aim and strategy. We offer an intermediate level text editing and proofreading service and we can certainly reduce the workload.
