Why have your work professionally copy-edited and proofread?

Whether you’re a student with a thesis to submit, a charity launching a new campaign to increase donations or a company publishing a new website, getting your work edited and proofread helps you avoid mistakes (which might be expensive!), express yourself clearly and create a professional image.

Save money

  • Picking up on spelling errors and typos the first time means you can avoid expensive reprints.
  • Making sure the language is clear reduces enquiries and misunderstandings.

Build your reputation and brand identity

  • Taking the time to create well-written text demonstrates that you care about quality, which increases confidence in your products or services.
  • Keeping to a house style can help strengthen your brand and distinguish you from competitors.

Avoid misunderstandings – keep it clear

  • Expressing your ideas clearly and consistently strengthens your message or argument and reduces the likelihood of misunderstandings.

Make non-native English read like native English

  • If you’re getting text translated into English from another language (for example, for a website aimed at English-speaking tourists), or if English is not your first language, having the text edited and proofread can pick up on any errors and help make sure it sounds like native English.
