why do I need a proofreader?

Anyone who writes documents to be read by people they are not related to (that is, people who will judge the author by the quality of the work) needs to have the manuscript checked by an impartial, qualified, experienced proofreader before they send the document to the client. You only have one chance to make a good first impression, and if your writing is not the best ambassador that you have you may miss out on a qualification, a job, a project, a contract ....

why should I choose Perfectly Worded as my proofreader?

Perfectly Worded is so called because not only are we qualified and experienced, we are committed to making your documents perfect – using your words. Like we say in the logo at the top of the page: YOUR words made perfect. We work very hard on removing all the things that blur the outlines of your message. Some of our clients have been kind enough to write references for us: you can see a few of their comments here.

Provided we are in a cell-phone coverage area, we guarantee that we will respond to your query within 24 hours of an email being received or a phone message being left for us.

what can Perfectly Worded do for me?

Anything that makes your readers say "Hang on, what did I just see?" needs to be fixed. We fix it. We work for you, but on behalf of your readers, so that the essay or report or proposal or quote or thesis or book or whatever else contains as few things to distract from your message as we can contrive. But note: the words remain yours. We are not in the business of rewriting; we are in the business of making your thoughts and words say what you meant them to say. And we have an advantage over you, the author; because we didn't write it, we don't see what you meant to say, we see what you did say, and work on that. Some people call what we do "proofreading", some, "copy editing", and some, "technical editing". We don't care, as long as you and we all understand what we can do for you – we make your written words read as they should. That's it.
