Process

Our Proofreading Process

Our streamlined process comprises extensive proofreading (spelling/typos, grammar, punctuation) and editing (sentence structure, coherency and flow, concise and clear use of language, academic terminology/tone). We ‘polish up’ your manuscript and prepare it for publication or print. We track all of the changes made to your work, so that you can go over all of the changes made and choose whether to accept or reject each change. Both the tracked changes version and a final clean version of your manuscript are sent back to you. We also add comments on where you can potentially improve your writing. A final rigorous quality assurance check is then performed by a second proofreader to ensure the manuscript is sent back error-free.

Spelling

This involves correcting all typographical and spelling errors throughout the text.

Grammar

This involves adjusting all grammatical and syntax mistakes spotted.

Punctuation

This involves ensuring appropriate use of punctuation and eliminating punctuation errors, especially comma usage.

Structure & Clarity

This involves correcting common sentence structure mistakes, as well as ensuring concise and clear expression of ideas.

Coherency & Flow of Ideas

This involves checking the overall coherency and flow of ideas from paragraph to paragraph.

Academic Tone

This involves improving academic terminology and usage of key technical terms.
