our excellence and our professional editing
enable your business to thrive

We offer quality and professional editing services and work in various formats – manuscripts, academic theses and dissertations, business documents, websites, blurbs, marketing matter and training material.

Our passion for all word matters and our professional editing services include: quality editing, proofreading and perfecting. Our focus is on style, content, grammar, language, spelling, punctuation, writing, layout, formatting … every detail matters to us!

  • Development editing – structures the content to present it correctly and to make it flow. It may require a total rewrite or reorganisation. This is done prior to line editing.


  • Manuscript, copy-editing or line editing – ensures the language is consistent and correct; improves content, organisation, tone, scope, length. The content may require rephrasing to eliminate ambiguity, for smoothness, tightening, reorganising, simplifying and a final polish. Tables, graphs and pictures are also formatted here.

what we can do for you

  • Authors, writers, and academics pour their hearts and souls into their work, becoming too close to be critical and to see their own mistakes; we catch those errors.
  • We don't just do a fancy spell-check. That would be like using Google Translate to submit an important document in a foreign language. Poor spelling will make your document look unprofessional and seem as if you can't be bothered to present excellent work.
  • The meaning of a sentence can change depending on the punctuation used. Court cases have been lost on the incorrect use of a comma!
  • If English isn’t your first language it can be difficult to get right (or is that write or rite)! Poor grammar could lead to the wrong understanding of your message.
  • Editing and proofreading should be performed by different people other than the author or writer. It's like they say, 'a doctor needs a doctor'!
  • Ensure that you are getting the best out of your academic work with a professional edit before you submit. Let us help you over that final hurdle!
  • Our trained eye puts the information into context in a well-constructed sentence. You need our fresh pair of eyes!
  • We proofread as the last line of defence before your work is published.

We turn your work into excellence by catching errors, imperfections and inconsistencies.
