We are a specialist editing and translation business with over 20 years of combined experience.
We bring our enthusiasm, expertise and care to your documents so that your message has maximum impact.
We specialise in text in the following areas:
A piece of text is a lot like a set of clothes: it’s not just about whether they keep us warm or not, but also about how they look, and the impression that they create. The same with text. When tidied up and polished, it will be generally much better received by its readers. Therefore, investment in proofreading and editing is beneficial for the communication process between you and your readers. For example, a well-presented text can add an impression of professionalism and competence.
We believe that your text is yours. We make the minimum number of changes needed for maximum improvement. Our job is to clean the text up and polish it, but we respect your writing and your voice as it appears in your text. Unless you specifically ask us to, we will not rewrite any part of the content of your text. In fact, third-party proofreading guidelines (such as these University of Auckland and AUT guidelines) explicitly prohibit us from doing so when editing/proofreading assessed academic texts.
We send you two electronic copies of your text (normally as .doc or .docx, but other formats are also available). One will be a ‘clean’ final version, and the other will contain Track Changes markup, which will show you all the changes that we have made to your text. Comments will also be inserted into this version, if appropriate. For example, if there is some issue that appears noteworthy, we will include a comment discussing it, which you can then review.
Together, we have more than 20 years’ experience in writing and editing/proofreading. See the About us page for more information.
The price of a job will depend on a number of factors, including document type and length. Please contact us for a quote.
