One of the great advantages of sourcing textual copy, whether it be in the form of articles, press releases or blog posts, from Precise English is that you can feel confident that the copy you receive is free of careless spelling errors that could otherwise contribute towards giving your company an unduly unfavourable reputation. Indeed, even if you still think that spelling errors are insignificant in text copy, here is a list of just some of the most notorious and costly spelling mistakes in recent history…
When you place extreme time and effort into producing high quality academic work, it can seem unfair to be penalised for grammatical and spelling mistakes when you have shown that you have gone the extra mile to research your topic to the highest level and composed a compelling argument. Whilst many of us are fully confident when it comes to our use of English, there’s nothing like the help of a second pair of eyes to ensure that everything is in place. If the content is great, but could be expressed better, there’s nothing to lose in a little outside proofreading.
Just when we all thought traditional spelling and grammatical skills were on their way out, ready to be replaced by slang and ‘text speak’, companies are becoming more and more aware of good English, good spelling, and good grammar. In fact, more importantly than that, they are becoming pickierabout it. So, before you give up proofreading, perhaps we should all be thinking more seriously about it.
Making errors with grammar, spelling and sentence structure in promotional content, information or websites is all too easy to do and can have a damning effect. One of our biggest frustrations is the ease with which those effects could be eradicated if more people used a professional proofreader.
Well-written and informative content is great, and is a powerful tool in terms of creating your own unique identity, but the whole house of cards can fall apart if this content features grammatical errors and spelling mistakes, meaning that whilst everything else about your service may be professional, you may fall at the final hurdle when it comes to how your content is presented. If you write your own copy, it’s well known that the authors of content sometimes do not notice mistakes they make; regardless of how many times they thoroughly review their writing.
It is highly important that your copy is free of error, especially when every other element of your service looks professional to potential customers. Employing a professional proofreading service means that any such errors will be ironed out, and a ‘second opinion’ regarding the terms and phrases used in your copy could be the defining factor that cements a sale. Even the best writers use proofreading to identify mistakes they may have made or to correct sections that do not flow and are not consistent, to ensure their work is clear, understandable, engaging and of the highest standard possible.
The highest and most desirable standard possible
Precise English work hard with clients to ensure that your service emanates ‘professionalism’. Small errors can tarnish your image more than you may expect, so it’s worth going the extra mile to ensure what ultimately may be a small portion of your service tarnishing your image far more than you deserve. Inconsistencies in quality can affect the entirety of services, so why not run your copy through our professionalproofreading service to ensure every element of your company is of the highest and most desirable standard possible?

At Precise English, we know that every project is different and has a number of variables that can affect the time it will take to complete and therefore our proofreading rates. That’s why we don’t list our proofreading rates on the website. It’s not because we’re expensive (we’re often told that our prices are some of the cheapest in the country) but because we want to provide you with an accurate quote rather than a ball-park figure that may either get your hopes up or scare you away.
