Why details matter
At The Proofreading Company, we are meticulous about every aspect of writing, because we know how much details matter.
By ‘details’ we mean grammar, punctuation, style, register, consistency, logical argument, rhetorical flair, lexical choices and the way in which all of these conspire to convey meaning.
Whether you’re an academic, a student, a writer or a corporate client, we offer an English proofreading or copyediting service tailored to your needs.
The Proofreading Company was founded by Peter Clayburn and Rosie Tate, two first-class Oxford language graduates armed with extensive experience in publishing and the language sector.
A team of talented language experts
We personally oversee every submission, and are thrilled to work with a team of talented language experts who have a flair for elegant, clear and well-structured writing—and who share our obsession with details. We like to get under the surface of a text and fully understand its meaning, so that our editing goes well beyond correcting typos and punctuation errors.
We work on projects of all shapes and sizes. Whatever the text, we aim to leave our clients open-mouthed at what their writing can become. We get to read about some pretty interesting ideas along the way, too, from film proposals to scientific research.

We have worked with The Proofreading Company for brand and marketing texts and have been extremely satisfied both in terms of content and form. Rosie and Peter are very reactive and we have been impressed by their professionalism and diligence in working on our texts. The result more than met our expectations and those of our client. With The Proofreading Company we know our clients’ texts are in good hands – no matter which industry they are in.
Thank you SO MUCH for this excellent editing work. I’m super happy about it and you did a brilliant job! I’m particularly impressed about all the amendments you’ve made to the flow of the text by reducing the word count at the same time. You’ve corrected every tiny detail in the text - wonderful!
My cooperation with The Proofreading Company has been extremely positive. They proofread and edited a text in English I intended to publish in a highly specialised academic journal in 2012. The text dealt with international legal and economic issues, and The Proofreading Company was able to significantly improve the flow as well as the style.
The work proofread by The Proofreading Company has eventually led to several papers in leading management journals and conferences. I endorse them unequivocally and most enthusiastically!
I wouldn’t think of submitting a paper without having The Proofreading Company look at it first. Their editing has helped improve my manuscripts significantly.
