This service covers the proofreading of strategic and sensitive documents such as:

  • Papers presented at international conferences
  • Official correspondance or emails
  • Strategic documents of and/or to the Management
  • Presentations for official Management Committees or Meetings
  • Minutes


  • Please send your documents, preferably and where possible, as .doc files either to Joanne Madden or Jodie Ridewood.
  • Specify a maximum deadline; you will receive an acknowledgment of receipt with an estimated delivery date. The best possible will be done to meet your needs if you have an urgent deadline.
  • Two files will be returned to you (if .doc): a tracked version and a clean version of your proofread document. The track changes function of Word allows you to move easily between changes and accept any or all of the modifications proposed.
