Beware of ‘chancers” in the business of proofreading and editing. There are plenty of so-called proofreaders. marketing themselves in all sorts of innovative ways, such as free samples of their work, offering to proofread a section of their work at no charge and all sorts of other marketing tricks to catch you! #Cheaper is not always better!

To locate the ‘real deal’ check on the following points:

  • Do they have an attractive looking, professionally designed website that you can interact with easily?
  • Do they offer contactable testimonials from satisfied customers?
  • Is their website user-friendly?
  • How long have they been offering proofreading and editing services?
  • Do they offer their services internationally, and do they have permanent connections with international publishers?
  • Do they offer ‘tracking’?
  • Do they show you pictures of the principals in their organisation?
  • Do their satisfied clients offer tangible proof of successful exam results, prestigious awards or success in their careers, after submission or publication of their thesis or book?
  • These are just a few samples of how you can test if your proofreader is the right one.
