Professional Proofreading and Copy Editing Services



Prooftheword provides freelance copy editing and proofreading services, based in Southampton in the UK.

With over 25 years’ experience in the industry and around eight years as a freelance copy editor and proofreader, I can offer you the flexibility you need when it comes to proofreading and copy editing either onscreen or hard-copy formats.

I completely understand that your essay, dissertation, article, magazine, book, website, etc, is your baby – you only want it in the hands of people who care about it as strongly as you do. 

I will provide the following services as quickly as I can. If I have a lot of work going on, this will be hard to achieve, so I will need a little more time. Please appreciate that if I’m busy, I’m in demand, which indicates I’m very good at my job!

  • First-rate book rewriter
  • Leading university grammar check
  • FREE consultation

Rewriting Services

I can also rewrite your copy as needed.

This helps avoid plagiarism and also improves any errors you’ve made regarding syntax, sense, continuity and so on.

Excellent Prices

Prooftheword provides an excellent service for copy editing and proofreading services at an excellent price. I charge by the word count rather than by the hour (though by the hour if you prefer), so you will know the full price before I begin working on your document. Payments are accepted through bank transfer or PayPal. Also have IBAN and BIC codes, so international payments can easily be made.
