Proofreading, editing and formatting services

We can help. We'll ensure the writing in your publication sounds credible and professional, that it follows your organisation's writing style and style guide, and is consistent and appropriate for your audience.

Who do we help?

We proofread and edit corporate publications and reports, mainly for New Zealand government departments, Crown agencies, commissions and other public service sector organisations. We also work for communications and marketing teams, academics, businesses and non-profits.
