Editing and proofreading

We specialize in providing professional editing and proofreading services for research papers, research proposals, grant applications, essay write-ups, thesis/dissertation, book editing and proofreading, proofreading of business proposals, personal statements and term papers, etc. We utilize Microsoft Word’s Track Changes feature so you can see all of the changes we make to your document. We provide you with a tracked version that highlights our changes, as well as a clean version that has all of our amendments accepted (free of any tracking).

Lexis and vocabulary

Where suitable, our editors will introduce changes to the lexis/vocabulary to improve the academic tone and style of a document. For non-academic documents, we aim to ensure that word choice is suited to the purpose and readership of the writing.

Logic and clarity

Issues with logic and clarity are important areas of consideration for our editors. We will look to fix such issues that can be repaired and provide feedback and guidance on areas that need the author’s attention.

Sentence structure and awkward phrasing

We will correct issues related to improper sentence construction and awkward phrasing to ensure that your writing reads in a coherent and logic manner.

Redundancy, repetition, and wordiness

Saying more with less is an important nuance of successful academic writing. Our editors will analyze your writing and make corrections to excessive wordiness, repetition, and redundancy.

Grammar and punctuation

We will proofread your writing to correct errors related to grammar, punctuation, and spelling. We target errors such as misused articles, run-on sentences, incorrect coordinating conjunctions, comma splices, verb-subject agreement issues, dangling participles, split infinitives, and other issues.
