How we can help you

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

Time is short.  You are busy.  You need someone to check your work before the deadline.  We can help.

.

There are several things we can do to make your life easier, specifically, by taking what YOU have written and making it as good and as professional as it can be.  We don’t do advertising copy with fancy graphics.  We are, obviously, more than the spell checker on your computer.  We respect what you want to say, but help by making what you say ‘tighter’ and more professional.  We do this in several ways:

.

Proofreading:

.

We’ll look at the spelling, grammar and punctuation, checking for any errors and putting them right for you.  That’s the easy part.

.

Composing:

.

You send the draft and we will clarify, tighten and structure your words into a more punchy composition.  Your draft may range from a few notes that you would like ‘worked up’ for you into a full-blown document or it may only be something which needs only a little work on the structure to make it flow more easily and professionally.

.

Cultural referencing:

.

This might be useful to you if you are not a native British speaker or writer and you want to make your words understood more universally.  Take for example, an American writer.  The writer may use words, references to national characters, products, shops, etc., about which readers worldwide know little or nothing.   We can spot these references to enable you to express what you want in a way that will be comprehended by all.  Spelling can be tricky.  Taking the American example again, we can advise on whether to keep or change your particular spelling of color/colour, center/centre, etc.

.

Special Areas:

.

We also have specialist knowledge areas.  This means we can understand the nature of your work and help with greater technical detail in the following areas:

.

Science and technology – astronomy, chemistry, biology and biochemistry

Business – training programmes and human resources

Arts and crafts – pottery, spinning, weaving and dyeing

Entertainment – theatre, magic and the paranormal

What we won’t do:

.

Examined work:

.

We won’t write things for which you will be assessed or examined.  That means we are not going to write your essay or thesis for you.  Of course we can proofread it for you, but we won’t change the content.  We never lose sight of the fact that it is your work.
