English Editing Services

We specialise in editing documents written by skilled second-language speakers that need the finishing touches only a qualified first-language editor can provide. We guarantee all our work to meet international publishing standards. All our documents are edited by a professional editor and then checked again by another before they’re returned to you. In addition, we thoroughly check all our documents using dictionaries and spelling checks.

We serve a range of industries, and have highly skilled and experienced editors for everything from corporate business documents to government annual reports and academic thesis or book proofreading services.

Projects

We always give a free assessment on any document. No two projects are the same. Some documents just need their language checked whereas other edits are purely style. We will always offer you the best fit for your budget. Our editorial services range from basic spelling and grammar checks to in-depth academic editing. Broadly speaking, they can be broken down into the following stages:

Editing Stages

2. Full Editorial

Our editor goes through the grammar and phrasing in your document, correcting the language to standard business, legal or academic English.

A second editor does a final proof, checking the editor's changes have been implemented and re-checking all key content.
