We thrive on repeat business and as a result we strive to ensure that ALL our clients are satisfied enough to trust us with any future business. Our testimonials speak for themselves. We also provide a proofreading and editing certificate if required.
We have found that most editing and proofreading ‘services’ do not offer a one on one relationship as they assign each project to only ONE Editor or Proofreader. Busy Bee Editing remains one of the FEW services of its kind in South Africa that GUARANTEES that a team of two will be dedicated to YOUR project from start to finish. We double check and correct your work BEFORE sending it to you.
We do not ask for a deposit or for a payment upfront until the work has been completed to our satisfaction.
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, secretary and sub-editor.
We both love animals and the environment and we are happily living in a delightful country town called Napier in the Overberg area in the Western Cape, South Africa with our precious little girl, our rescued dog ‘Happy’ who is also our ‘office manager’ and our rescued Yorkie ‘Taffy’ who is ‘the dogsbody’.
Cliff hails from Plumstead in Cape Town where he lives with his faithful dogs ‘Crawford’ and ‘Ruff’. Cliff is a lover of animals and he takes their plight to heart by being involved in finding those in shelters their “forever homes”.
