At The Write Way we see the sense (and madness) of Oscar Wilde’s statement:

“I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning, and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again.”

Although we labour over the perfect presentation of your content and copy, we draw the line at spending all day agonising over an adjective or being too concerned with a crafty comma! In our proofreading department, the main criteria is that your website and other marketing materials are sent out into the world free from spelling mistakes, bad grammar and poor punctuation.

Why Use a Proofreading Service?

The effects of errors in these areas cannot be underestimated. A British survey from 2013 revealed that 59% of people will not use a company with bad grammar on its site, while in a BBC news article from 2011, online entrepreneur Charles Duncombe maintained that an analysis of website figures shows a single spelling mistake can cut online sales in half.

A spellcheck will not catch all of the potential errors and will on many occasions make absurd suggestions for changes. This is why a forensic check by a highly qualified proof reader is invaluable and more than worth the initial outlay in terms of return on investment.

Benefits of Proofreading Services for Businesses

Customers will judge the quality and trustworthiness of your business based on your web site and they won’t buy your products or use your services if they consider that little or no effort has been put in to the presentation.
This holds true for your offline marketing material also including flyers, brochures, catalogues, press releases and advertisements.

Benefits of Proofreading Services for Students:

We proofread dissertations, research projects and theses up to and including PhD level for a wide variety of academic disciplines. Our proofreading specialist services include checking bibliographies and references. It has been shown that up to 10% of marks can be lost through careless presentation and lack of care with literacy.
