Proofreading Services

Already happy with how your words sound but just want to check that no little mistakes have sneaked in? Sounds like you need our proofreading services.

Writing correction proofreading services

Our proofreading services are for you if you already have some great content but you want a professional to have a look over it and make sure it’s completely free of errors before you publish, send, share or print it.

Not everyone knows their ‘theres’ from their ‘they’res’ or understands how to punctuate perfectly, but for the ones that do, any typos in your content will stand out like a sore thumb. One or two might be forgiven, but frequent mistakes will just make you look unprofessional.

If you can’t be bothered to check your writing properly, why should a potential client trust you to do a good job for them?

What if English isn’t my native language?

We are happy to do ESL proofreading as well, and we understand the struggles of writing in a foreign language – you just want your content to sound natural to a native English speaker. We’ll even send you some guidance on common mistakes you’re making so you can improve for next time.

What’s included in your proofreading services?

We’ll make sure everything is in order with your:

  • Spelling (in whichever type of English you specify)
  • Grammar
  • Syntax
  • Word choice
  • Word repetition

What’s not included?

Our proofreading services don’t cover:

  • Formatting
  • Search engine optimisation (SEO)
  • Change of style/voice
  • Fact checking

If you’re after any of these things, try our content editing and re-writing services instead.

That’s just what I need. What are your proofreading rates?

We’d love to be able to publish a fixed price for our proofreading services, but the answer is “it depends”. Mainly on the quality of the original document, but also on the word count and how quickly you need the work completed.

Our prices start at US$15 per 1,000 words, but if you need it like yesterday it’ll be a bit more.

If your English isn’t fluent, that also means the rate will be slightly higher. It’s nothing personal; it just takes us longer to complete the work when there are lots of corrections to make.

If you require proofreading services regularly, for example for a blog or email newsletter, we can offer lower rates on a long-term basis – just let us know what you need.

To get a quote for proofreading your website, article, or document, you can contact us with the details or email hello@stuffwithwords.com, attaching the file you’d like us to proofread. We’ll get right back to you with your personalised rate and if you’re happy with it, we’ll go ahead with the work. If not, no hard feelings.
