Professional Proofreading and Editing Services


“Your proofreading and language editing greatly improved the quality of my paper, and it has now been accepted for publication by a respected international journal. I am very confident in your friendly and professional service and would have no hesitation in recommending you to others.”

Ainur, PhD student, Kazakhstan

My name is Nicola Everitt and I am a professional proofreader and editor based in the UK.

I provide proofreading and language editing for:

Non-native English speakers
Authors and students
Businesses and publishers

Whether you are a student, an author, or an experienced academic, the accuracy of your written work reflects your credibility and reputation. As readers, nothing makes us doubt the professionalism of a published document more than spelling or grammatical errors. I provide a proofreading and language editing service to eradicate errors and add value to your work, thus ensuring that your content remains the focus and your words speak for themselves.

I am friendly and professional, and I pride myself on my meticulous approach to proofreading and language editing your work so that your readers have no reason to doubt its quality.

You can be confident in my abilities as I am educated to Postgraduate Diploma level and trained with the Publishing Training Centre to complete its industry-recognised course in proofreading. In addition, I spent more than five years working as a Contracts Specialist where I drafted, negotiated, and proofread research-related and legal documents. I am therefore very experienced at looking closely at the detail of documents as I know just how important accuracy is.

I have a particular interest in texts relating to business studies, intellectual property, administration, and law. However, I also have experience of working with a wide range of other documents in a variety of different areas; from psychology and education, to religious studies and fiction.

I am an Intermediate Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders and abide by its Code of Practice which ensures editorial excellence within the industry.

If you think I have the skills that match your needs, then please get in touch – I look forward to working with you!
