Business Editing and Proofreading Services

The Expert Editor caters for small and large businesses, non-profits, government agencies, and professionals requiring quality editing and proofreading.

We have edited and proofread website content, annual reports, e-books, marketing material, training manuals, articles, blogs, business plans, press releases, grant proposals, resumes and CVs, selection criteria responses, and more. We can help any organisation, and optimise any document.

Our client base is diverse, and we have an ongoing relationship with a number of Australian companies. See a select list here. We are able to create a custom service to suit any business.

Business editing and proofreading services outlined

The Expert Editor provides both editing and proofreading services to businesses and professionals. We outline what each service involves below.

Business editing

The Expert Editor’s business editing service improves the overall quality of the writing.

We increase the fluency of the language (and along the way eliminate mistakes and inconsistency through our proofreading service, outlined below), improve sentence structure and word use, and also ensure that ideas and key messages are clearly expressed.

The Expert Editor’s business editing service takes into account the document type, such as an investor report versus an eBook for public consumption. We ensure that the writing style and tone are appropriate to the audience.

Business proofreading

Proofreading has less ambition than editing and involves reviewing the document to ensure that there are no spelling, grammar, or punctuation errors, or inconsistencies in language and spelling.

The Expert Editor’s business proofreading service plays an important role in ensuring clear and professional communication, as errors and inconsistency can undermine any document and reflect poorly on the credibility of the business.

Does your writing need editing or proofreading?

Editing and proofreading have different objectives, and the answer to this question will largely depend on the type of document in question and its intended distribution.

The Expert Editor has created a comprehensive guide to the difference between editing and proofreading to help our clients make an informed choice about which service is best for them. Read the guide here:

Editing versus Proofreading: The Greatest Debate in the World (for Writers, Anyway!)

The Expert Editor’s advantage for businesses and professionals

Great value

The Expert Editor business has two key features: we employ skilled professional editors and have an exclusively online, efficient, and flexible operation. We give a detailed explanation of the business model which allows us to provide high quality business editing and proofreading services at very reasonable prices.

Flexibility that is perfect for business clients

As an exclusively online business, we have a flexible operation that handles work flow with precision and ensures we are always accessible to clients. Our editors work 7 days a week, so you can submit a document on Friday afternoon and have it back Monday morning.

We know that flexibility is important for a business and therefore we can accommodate short turnarounds at no extra cost and handle spikes in volume.

Confidentiality

Client confidentiality is taken seriously as we understand that many businesses have sensitive information that must be secure at all times. Our Privacy Policy outlines the steps we take to guarantee client confidentiality. We are also happy to sign a non-disclosure agreement for extra peace of mind.

The importance of editing and proofreading

Many businesses can benefit from outsourcing editing and proofreading. The identity of a business is strongly influenced by the standard of its communications, and editing and proofreading are important components of quality business writing.

The quality of your writing can be the difference between a customer buying your product or not. Consumers or stakeholders cannot help but draw deductions from sloppy spelling and poor wording in communications – it says a lot about the company’s attention to detail.

If a business does not have the resources or expertise to do all their editing and proofreading in-house, an external editing service such as The Expert Editor is often the best solution.
