Part of the proofreading process often includes removing unnecessary words. If you’re a business, author, researcher, or professional, we can work to your specifications, so just contact us with your requirements.

Yes, generally universities allow and actively encourage proofreading; some students even receive a proofreading allowance. We are also always careful that we only proofread students’ work and never make edits that change the meaning. Our services meet university guidelines, but these rules can vary, so you should always check with your university first.
During proofreading, we will add comments to explain changes we make. Where possible, we also link to helpful posts from our writing tips blog to help you learn more. This enables our customers to improve their English writing skills. If you want a more tailored service, we can also recommend an English tutor if you contact us.
