Making a good first impression on potential clients, lecturers, readers or any other individual is of vital importance. Often, it is difficult for one to pick up one's own proofreading errors and it is beneficial to have a second eye look over your work.
Why should you use us?
* We are committed to turning your document into a quality piece of work.
* Our passion is the English language. Yours may be the subject you are writing about - a combination of the two would make your work incomparably powerful.
* We are deadline and quality driven, and are committed to the needs of our clients.
* We have a proven record of success in our field.
* Being in South Africa allows us to offer you very competitive rates and turnaround times.
Why is it important to make sure your grammar and spelling is correct?
* Getting it right shows attention to detail and makes a good impression.
* Getting it wrong looks unprofessional.
* Getting it wrong might change meaning. Take for instance the following examples:
You might be energetically and enthusiastically writing up your business profile - and in your excitement, missing out a single letter might be understandable - but imagine your client's reaction on reading about "Pubic Relations" instead of "Public Relations". Grammatical errors can even be detrimental to a person's health - look at the following:
"Let's eat, Grandma" as opposed to "let's eat Grandma". A comma is just a small mark, seemingly insignificant, but in this case, vital to Grandma's wellbeing! In business, getting it right is possibly even more important than getting it right socially.
Play it safe, and let us proofread for you.

Editing involves correcting, revising and adapting a piece of writing to make it suitable for publication. Good editing makes sentences clearer and improves sentence construction by changing the word order, replacing a word for a more suitable one, or deleting unnecessary words which spoil the rhythm and flow of the writing.
Proofreading should be done after editing is completed. A proofreader reads through the piece closely, checking for errors in spelling, punctuation and grammar. He/she also checks that the layout elements (such as headlines, paragraphs, margins, page numbering, fonts and font size) are consistent throughout the piece.
As you can see from these definitions, the editor's task is far more onerous than that of the proofreader, and thus editing is double the price of proofreading.
I can recommend the services of a highly experienced English/Afrikaans translator. Errol Collen holds an MA (cum laude) degree from UNISA (1979) and has been translating, editing, proofreading and writing for 40 years. Read more about him at the above link or contact me for further details. His rates are very reasonable and he will give you a free quotation when you contact him.
