Copy Editing / Proofreading

At Proofreading Works, we strongly believe that language should enhance your ideas. We are committed to working with our clients to ensure that their documents are the best they can be.

What we do

Our proofreading/copy editing service generally includes:

  • Correcting spelling and grammatical errors;
  • Restructuring sentences to improve clarity, where necessary; and
  • Ensuring formatting is consistent.

Please let us know if your document needs to follow a specific referencing system (e.g. Harvard).

Tracking changes

Our editing and proofreading work is normally completed electronically using Microsoft Word’s Track Changes tool. This tool allows you to accept or reject every change that we make, ensuring that the work remains entirely yours. We will also provide a version of the document with all our changes accepted for your convenience.

Protecting your documents

We keep all files on password-protected computers and keep our firewall and anti-virus software up to date. Files and emails are retained for six months after the completion of a project and then destroyed, unless requested otherwise.


Prices start from £10 per 1,000 words and vary according to the level of work necessary and the deadline.
