Great job done on proofreading our paper for a UK journal. I particularly appreciated Ally's further explanations on the reasons for her corrections. Very clear and prompt communication as well.
Ksenia Silchenko, postdoctoral researcher
Ally was willing to take on a complex thesis project with a very short deadline. She completed it early and to impeccable standards. I can not recommend her work highly enough – her attention to detail is extraordinary.

IF YOU'VE GOT THESE, I'll proofread them for you:
- dissertations, theses, articles and papers
- business material – annual reports, extended job applications
- social sciences
HOW DOES IT WORK?
If your work is a Word document, I work with Track Changes. If it's a PDF, I use the commenting tools.
First you send me a short sample of your work, from the middle of the piece so that it's typical of the whole. I'm happy to do a 200-word free sample, explain my quote and my terms and conditions. You accept – hopefully!
I go quiet while I work on your document, then return the proofread document to you, with suggestions and queries for you to deal with. One favour I ask of you: a quick review on Find a Proofreader, one of my main directories that draws in clients; I can then use this review elsewhere also.
YOU WANT AN IDEA OF PRICE?
Of course you do. For all proofreading, my price ranges from £16 to £20 per 1,000 words. The lower end is for material that needs fewer changes; the higher end is for text that needs more intervention. (If you're a student or academic, then references/ bibliography need a separate hourly quote.)
So what's your word-count? Your annual report of 5,000 words will come in between £80 and £100. For your thesis of 70,000 words, you can expect to pay between £1,120 and £1,400. You get the idea. I ask for 50% of the payment up front by online bank transfer. When we decide that the project is complete, I invoice you at the end of the project for payment of the balance within seven days of the invoice date.
That's how we work.
