Writing, editing and proofreading services throughout Australia and worldwide
A good editor is passionate about helping readers as well as writers.
“Editors work with writers for the benefit of readers. They help writers get their message across with greater clarity, elegance, forcefulness and insight.” (The Institute of Professional Editors Limited (IPEd) http://iped-editors.org/About_editing.aspx

Full Proofreading Services Overview

Before submitting a document for publication or distribution, whether it is a business proposal, news article, manuscript or thesis, you need to make certain it communicates the message you want to convey in the most effective and concise way possible. It needs to be well written and free of spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors. Proofreading is something that many businesses and individuals believe they can achieve themselves. Unfortunately, this perception is incorrect. It has long been acknowledged that proofreading your own work will not give you the same result as having it edited by a professional. Most documents contain typographical mistakes or incorrect syntax that a professional editor or proofreader will quickly find and correct prior to it being published. Of course, most people believe they can read over their material and find all the ‘typos’, but the reality is we are just not that good at reading our work objectively and spotting our own errors. Mistakes that are missed the first time are highly likely to be missed the second and subsequent times you proofread your document. Just one seemingly insignificant error can change the whole meaning of a sentence, and result in the document being perceived entirely differently to how you intended. Submitting your work to a professional editor or proofreader will result in a final document that is polished and error free, thereby its readers form a positive impression of your work. This can have a huge impact on the success of a project, acceptance of a tender, a job placement, or whether an item is accepted for publication.
