Copy that may be well written loses all credibility if its accuracy, consistency and style do not follow suit. Editing streamlines your copy so that it conveys a good impression concisely, precisely and plausibly. Whether it’s your magazine, manuscript, thesis, website, report or proposal it cannot afford to lose a good first impression. Having worked in publishing and print media, our editors and proofreaders are adept at perfecting text. We offer:

  • Proofreading (checking of spelling and grammar errors as well as sentence structure)
  • Line editing (checking of syntax, facts, errors in logic and characterization)
  • Substantive editing (reviewing the work holistically and may include rearranging chapters and reworking pages)

Copyright restrictions prevent us from posting examples of our edited work in our portfolio. We have, however, worked with Macmillan South Africa and Heinemann Publishers as well as numerous doctorate and masters students and their theses and dissertations. We offer student discounts at a per page rate. Contact us for an obligation free quote.

While many a graphic artist may disagree, about 80 percent of adverts could go without images whereas only 2 percent can make it without words–even if the 98 percent have only one word. When you really want to motivate someone to action it’s not the implied thousand words that does the trick but the simple one-liner or the line that pays off. It would be a waste of great design, though, not to complement it with good copy.
