Bringing out the best
in your texts

We bring out nuances and get beyond the words. The end result is a smooth, elegant text.

A good proofread adds the finishing touches to a text. It doesn’t alter it, it optimises it. We’re good at that because we spot things that aren’t obvious. We scrutinise the orthography, grammar and style. We make your texts shine. So that they express even more clearly whatever you want to say.

Making sure your texts cut through

Texts are a substitute for the spoken word. An effective text goes some way towards capturing what the written word cannot convey: facial expression, body language, tone. A good text does that. An average one does not. So where is the difference? It’s when a text comes alive.

A good text “speaks” to its audience. There are no clunky expressions or ambiguous words to detain the reader. Instead, your eyes glide over the lines, your mind digests the meaning and your heart beats in its rhythm.

Outstanding texts achieve the desired effect and delight the reader. The author of a text needs to be eagle-eyed to spot the trip hazards in their own work. The alternative is to engage proofreaders, with a fresh pair of eyes to spot and iron out those minuscule bumps and quirks. Proofreaders like ours.

An honest partnership: take our word for it

Precision is our profession

To be sure we fully understand your message and audience, we ask pertinent questions. So that we go beyond simply optimising your texts and genuinely make the most of them.

Look over our shoulder

We don’t just deliver a perfect finished product. We are transparent about our work and can explain all of our decisions.

Speed

A good proofread makes your texts shine

Sounds great… but how do you make a text really glow from within? It takes a combination of craft, experience, intuition and talent.

Form is the benchmark of this craft: we make sure your texts are flawless and grammatically sound. We draw on our experience to make sure all expressions are right for the readership, and that the words say and mean exactly what you want them to.

An instinct for text composition and a talent for writing give your texts that vital finishing touch that lets them flow. Their meaning becomes more than the sum of the individual words and sentences.

It’s like a perfectly tuned orchestra. You hear the violins, cellos, woodwind, brass and percussion as a harmonious unit. If just one instrument plays a wrong note, the whole performance suffers. Our proofreaders are like conductors. They make your text glow from inside, like music to the ears of your target audience.
