Proofreading and editing
to make your writing shine

Words. They’re tricky. Without expert proofreading or editing, your professional image can slip with a single keystroke.

Words are your shop window, and people might walk away if your writing’s poor. Errors, waffle, clumsy punctuation, bombast, jargon and the wrong tone can all harm your hard work and stop your message sparkling.

As a Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) advanced professional, I’ve helped clients including multinationals, esteemed universities, authors, charities and sole traders to perfect their words.

Want wise words for web pages? At Word Wise Web, you’re in the right place. I can also edit or proofread your blogs, reports, pre-print literature or anything else with words. If it can be read, I can make it shine.

I’ve done that for hundreds of clients, and you can read some of their testimonials on the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading page on the links below.

The £20 analysis

I can give your website a £20 editing health check, alerting you to any writing problems and, if needed, suggesting further action. Starting a new business after lockdown, or relaunching? Make sure your words give you a professional-looking start with a low-cost, expert analysis.

Proofreading or editing?

Proofreading is a final check, but editing analyses writing before the design phase. Proofreading involves fewer checks, because of the complications of making changes at the later stage. If you’re not at the final phase of your project before printing or going live, choose editing. 


Proofreading starts at £0.008 per word (£8 per 1,000), and editing at £0.012 per word. Most projects fall into that price band but, occasionally, it can cost more due to the extent of work needed. Web projects are priced per page, starting at £10. I’ll always be clear and honest with you about fees.
