B usy Bee Editing has been editing and proofreading the words written by individuals, authors, university students, as well as other entities worldwide. We serve individuals and businesses internationally and locally, from Johannesburg, Pretoria and Potchefstroom to Stellenbosch, Grahamstown and Cape Town. From our humble beginnings ten years ago with our first assignment, editing and proofreading a book for a friend, we have grown over the years.

Brenda van Rensburg

We assist students with their theses and dissertations. We assist established and first-time authors with their books and their eBooks. We assist local and overseas publishers with proofreading, editing and layout services. Our skill, expertise, confidentiality and integrity has successfully perfected the work of MANY happy clients. Busy Bee Editing thrives on repeat business. As a result, we strive to ensure that ALL of our clients are satisfied enough to return for more editing, proofreading, translating, typing and graphic design services in the future and to refer our services to others. We can provide references from many of these happy clients and the testimonials speak for themselves. We provide an Editing and Proofreading Certificate if required.
We have found that most editing and proofreading “services”, assign each project to only ONE editor or proofreader. Busy Bee Editing remains one the FEW services of its kind in South Africa that GUARANTEES that a team of two will be dedicated to YOUR project. We double check and correct your work BEFORE sending it to you.

We are two seasoned professionals who are both voracious readers and we are passionate about the English language. We GUARANTEE your satisfaction. Brenda was born in South Africa and Hugo in Sri Lanka. Hugo has a degree in Psychology and Drama from the University of Cape Town, South Africa. Brenda is an experienced self-taught personal assistant and graphic designer. We both have versatile working histories, which has proved useful for editing, proofreading, translating, typing and graphic design.

We both love animals and the environment and we are living happily in the Eastern Cape, South Africa with our precious little girl, our rescued dog “Happy” who is also our “office manager” and of course our precious addition to the Busy Bee family our little boy Taffy who is still in training.

Happy the office manager
