How to book English editing and proofreading services

Three easy steps to editing or proofreading services.

Read the PDF on how to prepare your brief, upload your text and schedule a call.

Approve the brief & quotation

After our call I will send you a summary of the brief and a quotation for you to approve.

Receive your edited or proofread text

Once approved, I will start editing or proofreading. You may need to answer a few questions as work progresses. You will receive your completed text before the agreed deadline.

The dangers of not proofreading your English content

Important content, such as prices and offers, terms and conditions, or legal notices, where the consequences of errors are severe can benefit from being checked by a second pair of eyes.  Not doing so could elevate your legal and business risks, as you may find yourself agreeing to terms which are not what you expected, or making unrealistic claims to customers.
