As a professional writer, there’s little more humbling than running my copy by a professional proofreader. But it is so necessary.
The fact is, we all have blind spots on certain grammatical rules and we can never effectively proofread our own work. And you cannot rely on your software’s built-in spelling and grammar checkers.
Which is why I always recommend getting a well-read colleague to check your work. But when it really matters, such as for an advert, a printed research report or a proposal, you need the services of a professional proofreader.
I now work with two proofreaders who have saved me from several howlers over the years, and now I’m able to offer their services via Glass Halo.

Copy editing for business
If you need a bit more help, we’ll edit your text to make it clearer to read and more impactful. This might include restructuring sentences, ensuring consistency, removing repetition and tailoring the text to meet your objectives. If required, we can combine our copywriting and copy editing service to take your basic ideas and turn them into compelling and correct copy.
Post-translation copy editing
And if you’ve had copy translated into English, we’ll make sure the message isn’t lost and the copy reads as if it was originally written in English (not always the case in translated material).
We’re pragmatic, business-savvy writers and editors and recognise you want to get your message across directly and in your own tone of voice. We never let pedantry or pomposity get in the way of good communication. Whether your style is authoritative or quirky, we’ll work within it so your copy still feels like it comes from you rather than some corporate sausage machine.
Send us your material electronically and we’ll send you a version with suggestions, comments and corrections noted as tracked changes. This means you can reject any changes you don’t like (it happens sometimes) and also learn from the experience of working with us.
The service is responsive, friendly and accurate – and offers excellent value.
