Editing services

In addition to proofreading, editing involves checking your text for:

We will rewrite any passages that are difficult to understand, and edit out repetition and filler words.

If your proofread text needs to be amended before printing, we can provide a print-ready version.

This ensures that no mistakes are overlooked and that your documents impress your readers.
