Editing

Our Manchester editors live to agonise over the elements of a document that few other people have the time or inclination to notice. We will go beyond the simple spelling, grammar and punctuation corrections to rework your sentences to make them clearer, more concise, more relevant, more engaging, and ultimately more effective.

Checks and balances

Your copy will give us a good idea of what you’re hoping to say. Our job as editors is to make your message more meaningful, more engaging, and more memorable. We’ll check for everything from house style to consistency, sense to intention, facts to links – doing everything it takes to make your words sing.

We’ll take our time reading it, tweaking it, checking it. And then we’ll read it all again (and maybe again), just to be sure.

How it works

  1. Step 1: The brief

    Tell us what you need. If you can, send us a little tease of the document so we can see what we’re talking about. We’ll get back to you with any questions we have, and we’ll take it from there.
  2. Step 2: The nitty-gritty

    We know not everyone works in the same way, so let us know how you want to do it. Tell us your preferred format, your ‘golden rules’ and your timescale. If you like what we’ve got to offer, we’ll do our chameleon thing and get the job done.
  3. Step 3: The product

    We’ll send you a first draft of your copy as soon as it’s ready. Love what we’ve done? Wicked. Not too keen on how we’ve reworked a certain paragraph? No worries. We’ll amend and revise until you’re happy.

What our clients are saying

I’ve used Comma Chameleon for a number of projects, ranging from children’s books to historical fiction novels. I’ve found them to be extremely professional, efficient and competent in their work, and they respond promptly to any questions asked. I thoroughly recommend them for any proofreading or editing work you need done, no matter the genre.
