What English language editing provides
Language editing, sometimes called English proofreading, can be an important step in the writing process before your work is read by your peers, submitted for publication or examination, or presented at a conference.
Our English language service is an effective way to guarantee the quality of your writing. It involves several steps to produce a publication-quality text:
- Correcting English language usage and style
- Correcting grammatical, spelling and punctuation errors
- Checking for clarity and consistency
- Improving the flow of the text
- Conforming to British, American or other English variety
Changes in your text are clearly marked in bold, and detailed comments are included where appropriate. We can work in all versions of Microsoft Word, both Windows and Mac, as well as Rich Text Format, plain text and PowerPoint.
Together with the PhraseBook for Writing Papers and Research, we provide English language products and services in 62 countries. Customers include university staff, graduate students and researchers at 277 universities including Oxford University, the University of Geneva, Stanford University, the University of California at Berkeley, MIT, the Universidad de Buenos Aires, Addis Ababa University, the University of Tokyo, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Australian National University. Corporate and institutional customers include staff and researchers at organizations such as the Medical Nobel Institute and companies from pharmaceuticals to space technology.

Experience and reliability
As a company, we have a great deal of experience in university and research writing, with PhD chief editing staff. We are familiar with the types of errors typical for authors from different language backgrounds.
Language editing produces a reliable, grammatically and stylistically correct text that can be used in many ways, for example in print, conference presentations and posters, teaching or web pages.
Our service also serves as an important check before submission for publication or examination: for example, many journals recommend authors to have their texts edited for language before submission. Careful checking by our language editors can often pick up inconsistencies or alert the author to sections that may be unclear. Many of our clients appreciate this feedback, and all work is treated as confidential.
Sensitivity to meaning
We are also very aware of the importance of sensitivity to the author’s meaning as well as to differences in vocabulary, conventions and phrasing between subjects. A further important component in ensuring high quality are style notes on clients’ preferences and vocabulary, giving consistency not only across a single text, but across all a client’s language editing over time.
All our work is guaranteed, and if you for any reason are not satisfied we are happy to offer a full refund. For our full terms and conditions, click here
