Proofreading gives reassurance

Check it, then check it again… Get it right

Grammar Grief

We know it can be a pain in the behind, but if you want to look professional, it needs to be right. Don’t fear the apostrophe.

Stressful Spelling

At the moment there are 171,476 full entries for words in the Oxford English Dictionary, more than enough for anyone to remember. This doesn’t include some obsolete, regional, and technical words, so we would be very surprised if you were 100% accurate with your spelling 100% of the time.

Is it expensive?

No, not at all. get in touch for a no-obligation quote.

Is your spelling and grammar right? are you sure?

At some point, we all need a bit of assistance from the dictionary (or Google) to check that we’ve spelled something correctly. With almost 200,000 words in the Oxford English Dictionary, we would all be hard-pressed to remember how to spell everything or even just to ensure that the meaning of the word is appropriate. One spelling mistake or misused word can ruin your content.

The same applies for grammar; sticking the apostrophe in the wrong place, or the comma can change the context of your copy completely, the wrong grammar can make your content look unprofessional. Sometimes you just don’t have the time to ensure that it is right, you may not be sure, or a mistake’s been made. Whatever it is, sometimes a bit extra help is needed. Our agency can help you by taking this job off your hands.

What do you use proofreading for?

You may think that proofreading is limited to that special document you produced, no, Initial Words proofreads theses, novel manuscripts, contracts, website content. If it has words, it needs checking. We’re always happy to chat about these types of projects.
