Why use a proofreader?

Whether you have a thesis to submit, a marketing campaign to launch, a book to sell or a website to publish, getting your work edited and proofread helps you express yourself clearly, build trust and create a professional image.

Save money

  • Picking up on spelling errors and typos the first time means you can avoid expensive reprints

  • Making sure the language is clear reduces enquiries and misunderstandings

  • Although the majority of typos do not cause monetary damage, every now and then they have cost companies millions

Build your reputation and brand identity

  • Taking the time to create well-written text demonstrates that you care about quality, which builds confidence in your products or services

  • A text riddled with errors can ruin credibility quickly.  If you didn't take the time to polish the document, how can you be trusted with more important things?

  • Keeping to a house style can help strengthen your brand and distinguish you from competitors

  • Proofreading can shield you from embarrassing mistakes, especially in the world of social media where anything can become a meme​

Avoid misunderstandings

  • Expressing your ideas clearly and consistently strengthens your message or argument. This reduces the likelihood of misunderstandings

  • Punctuation has the power to change the meaning of a sentence

Present your research well - focus on the message not the mistakes

  • Getting your article proofread makes your research stand out

  • Overlooked errors are distracting

  • Aim to inform and fascinate, not frustrate

  • It makes your argument clearer and increases the credibility of your work

  • If your writing is polished, refined and professional, people are more like to view you this way

  • Proofreading shows you care about your subject matter

Increases your chances of being published or getting better grades

  • The main reason articles get rejected for journals is due to poor language use.  Proofreading can prevent this

  • Students who have their theses or dissertations proofread can achieve higher grades as their meaning is clearer and more cohesive

  • Authors who take the time to have their manuscript proofread are more likely to find a literary agent and get their book published
