Our Academic Proofreading service was designed with native English speakers in mind. It is designed to be used as a final check for an already well-written document, where the meaning is clear and the writing style concise.
Our expert editors will ensure that your document is completely free of those small, easy-to-overlook errors in spelling, punctuation and use of grammar. All corrections are made for you, and these are highlighted using track changes.
Our Academic Editing service is a thorough edit by a subject specialist, designed to improve your academic English and ensure that your marker or reviewer understands your intended meaning on the first reading.
