Copy editing

Written your book, composed your brochure, produced your report - but somehow it just doesn't get the right message across? Then check out our editing service.

At Word Smiths, we do more than produce sentences that are clear and grammatically correct. We ensure that the material has a clear, logical structure and delivers a message which will inspire, encourage, inform or persuade each individual reader. Our work always embodies the Plain English principles and the concepts which are delivered in Word Smiths' business writing workshops and the Effective Business Writing for Success audio book.

Here's what Brussels-based client EVCA (European Venture Capital Association) had to say:

"Thanks a lot for this. You have done a great job putting together all this material after a 2hr meeting! .... thank you Nick for the excellent job of clarifying our introduction ... I have now been through the first draft and I think it is an excellent start."

We acted as copy editors and author assistants on EVCA's Entrepreneurship Education graduate training project.

Other copy editing project clients include HMRC, Baxter Healthcare, The University of Glamorgan, The Tenant Services Authority, ActionAid, Emap Publications, GG Industries, M&G Investments, Winterthur Life, Royal Mail, Parcelforce, WEA.
