When we founded LondonProofreaders in 2013 our aim was simple – to supply the highest quality proofreading services in London. We felt that there was no affordable yet high-quality service available in the city. London has a large student population and we knew that we could help students improve the quality of their thesis and dissertation work. It is hard enough to write an academic text if you are a native English speaker, so imagine doing it if English is your second or even third language?
Five years later, with that goal achieved, we are now the fastest-growing online proofreading and editing company in not just London, but the UK. To date, we have worked with over 1,500 customers (both students and businesses) in over 30 countries and have proofread more than 3,000 documents. We have helped many foreign students polish their work and get the mark they deserve. Up to 10% of the marks for a thesis, essay or dissertation depend on the quality of the writing, hence the value of a proofreading service.
We are run by an experienced team of proofreaders with extensive experience with all types of documents.
We are experts in PhD thesis proofreading, dissertation proofreading and essay proofreading and editing. Our service is fast, affordable and secure. If our standard turnaround time isn’t fast enough for your needs and you require a tight turnaround, we also offer an express proofreading service.
All of our IT systems are fully secure and we guarantee the security of your information under the Data Protection Act.
We serve a range of corporate clients also. Among the documents we have worked with are annual reports, white papers, website and blog pages, power point presentations and other document types. Some of our noteworthy clients are Rolls Royce, Lidl, British Airways and Healthwatch Hounslow.
We assign a proofreader and a quality control expert to every document we work with, that means you have two pairs of eyes checking your work. Your document is first sent to the first proofreader who proofreads and edits it, then it is sent on to a second proofreader who does a final check before it is sent back.
We currently have 10 proofreaders on our team.
Our professional proofreaders are all native English speakers, with a minimum of a Master’s degree in an academic field and a minimum of 3 years’ experience in proofreading, writing and editing. We look for candidates who have a flair for not just for grammar but also writing and languages. Additionally, some of our proofreaders have been published in newspapers and magazines. Others speak a foreign language, which we find helps make them more aware of the mistakes foreign students make. We ensure quality through a challenging application process.
