  1. Thank you Sara for proofreading my work it really helped when I felt stressed about it. You returned it in speedy time, which encouraged me to carry on….thank you again, you got me through 👍

  2. So many customers love the work I do and this page proves it. If you’d like some great editing or proofreading yourself, all you have to do is hit the Contact tab at the top of this page or email prooftheword.com@gmail.com – I will happily work on your document for you.

  3. Just to let everyone know, this page doesn’t look the way it looks when I edit! The spacing is clearly all over the place and that isn’t down to me or anything I’ve done wrong. I keep trying to fix things (for example, my latest testimonial at the top of this page, what’s going on?), blame WordPress for this!

  4. Your very positive feedback keeps on coming! Clearly you’re doing great work for people and businesses! Why you’re not inundated with work I do not understand.

  5. These testimonials speak for themselves and do more than anything to convince me to use your services and to recommend them to others.

  6. Thank you Sara, and yes will email you asap, just waiting on a couple of things from the US.

  7. It’s good to see you keep updating your feedback. Good to know you’re keeping busy! I hope you’re kept busy with lots of work regularly and will use your editing services as soon as I need them!

    1. Yes, I’m pretty busy at the moment, but can always fit more work in! Just let me know what you need editing, I will let you when I can get the work done by and there you go!

  8. Sara is a pleasure to work with, and very speedy! I would most certainly use her services again, as well as recommend her to others in need of a sharp eye for grammatical details. Five stars 🙂

All you have to do is email me at prooftheword.com@gmail.com!
