Editing services

Editing services

We can edit your documents quickly to a very high, clear standard for your intended audience.

When providing our editing service we draw on decades of plain English experience and expertise. We are happy to look at your document first and give you an estimate of our editing costs. The estimate covers all editing needed to produce a final version that both you and we are happy with. If you need one, we can also provide you with a short sample edit of part of your document when we send you the estimate.

You do not have to apply for a Crystal Mark to have your document edited. We can simply edit your document and you can retain or reject the changes we make. However, if you want a Crystal Mark, you will need to take on board the vast majority of our suggestions. There is room for a small amount of compromise, but to earn a Crystal Mark your document will need to hit our high standards of clarity.

We will rarely increase an estimate we make unless you add pages to your document after we have begun editing it.

If you become a Plain English Campaign corporate member you can enjoy heavily discounted editing services.

We can edit your Microsoft Word document and send the file back to you with our changes highlighted. Alternatively, we can provide a hard copy showing handwritten changes.

If you have a document (or documents) ready for editing, and you would like an estimate, please email it to info@plainenglish.co.uk. Once you accept our estimate, we can start working on your document.

We expect to complete the editing of your document within five working days of receiving your signed acceptance of our estimate.

For any more information, phone us on 01663 744409 or send an e-mail to info@plainenglish.co.uk.

We also have a price list (PDF, 84KB) covering all our services. This is in Adobe Acrobat format.
