Text editing and proofreading services

We proofread text and content, check editorial style, and edit for a low literacy level, so a much wider-range of people can understand and act appropriately on your content. We help clients put together and define editorial style guides for websites, academic journals and publications, that massively reduces editing time, and problems when collaborating with external editors. You can view our editorial style guide for this website. Our suggestions and advice are based on reading books, journals, good industry practice, information design, plain English and evidence. We offer an intermediate-level text editing and proofreading service, and text that is more widely understood, is consistent and is well‑edited, has more chance of being respected, used, enjoyed and is safer.
