Arcevia Services believe that correctly written English is essential for effective communication. It is especially important for business and in our professional lives. Too many of us make written mistakes unintentionally. Some may not be confident enough in the use of English because it is not their native language.
An unchecked document or piece of writing of any kind may not fully convey the message to the reader, or due to its mistakes, the reader may not take it seriously enough or even be distracted by typos when trying to read it. This is often to the detriment of the author.
Proofreading is usually the last stage of preparing a document after it has been edited. Computer spellcheckers are good to use but they have their limitations. They are often unable to distinguish the correct tense or whether a word is correct. For example, the word 'hole' may be accepted when the correct word should have been 'whole'. Sometimes, all that is needed is a fresh pair of eyes to look at your work to spot the odd typo here and there.
Save time and money (as well as your reputation!) by using Arcevia Services to correct any spelling mistakes, check the punctuation, fix grammatical errors and check for consistency to eliminate ambiguities.
All corrections use tracking (currently only available for Word and pdf documents only) to highlight each correction so that it is immediately apparent what corrections have been made. It is left to your discretion whether to accept or to reject these corrections. Comments are also included to help highlight text that may not be clear or to explain why certain corrections were made. No third-party software is used when proofreading. Each and every word is read by eye and, if needed, corrected manually by hand.
