Comma Chameleon’s Manchester proofreaders are the fresh pair of eyes your copy is crying out for. It’s never a good idea to proofread your own work. It’s like working in a noisy office – you become immune to the background sounds, and only realise the sheer level of decibels when you move somewhere quiet. If you’ve spent hours slogging over a piece of copy, you’ll stop being able to see the individual words and will read only what you think is written.

Mark our words

We’ll flag up every repeated word, every typo and every homophone. We’ll strike through every extraneous comma and erroneous apostrophe. We’ll check for consistency and syntax, numbering and references, and we’ll make sure your tenses are pitch-perfect at every turn.

How it works

  1. Step 1: The brief

    Tell us how we can help. Better yet, send us the document you want proofreading, and tell us how and when you need the work done. Do you want it marked on paper or screen? With BSI symbols or PDF sticky notes? We’ll work however you need us to.
  2. Step 2: The nitty-gritty

    We’ll get in touch with any other questions we have, as well as a schedule of how long we think it’ll take us. If you’re happy we have all the information we’ll need to get the job done right, we’ll get cracking.
  3. Step 3: The product

    We’ll send you a first draft of your copy as soon as it’s ready. Happy with what we’ve done? Job’s a good ‘un. Need some of our changes explaining or amending? No problem. We won’t stop tweaking until you’ve got the copy you want.
