Who proofreads the proofreader? Every author needs a proofreader. I’ve been saying that for years. We don’t see what we wrote; we see what we think we wrote. I need everything I publish to be flawless. I don’t want a potential customer to see some sloppy writing and wonder what else I do sloppily, because then I’ve lost that potential customer. So when I’m the author, who do I turn to when I need someone to proofread my writing? ProofProfessor, of course. I don’t know anyone more thorough, and having him point out my mistakes keeps me humble.
Michael LaRocca, author and editor

A big thanks to the @ProofProfessor for reviewing my book, ‘Closedown’. This was my first experience with a proofreader. It is rare that I get things right at first attempt with service providers, but I will use ProofProfessor again. Great approach. Valuable feedback. Fantastic job. His review comments and changes were easy to relate to and the job was done in a week. I could not ask for more.
Daniel Dunn, author of Closedown

I did a lot of research when looking for a proofreader for my young adult novel. ProofProfessor offered the best prices and the quickest turnaround. They did not disappoint. I was amazed at the number of mistakes that were caught. Not only that, their communication was phenomenal. I think they must work around the clock! Between my beta readers and ProofProfessor, I feel confident that I’ve produced a better novel. I can’t imagine publishing another book without them.
Sherry Torgent, author of Dandelion on Fire

ProofProfessor saved me from grammar and punctuation embarrassment. They’ll point out the small stuff like missing commas and dashes, but also inconsistencies in your writing, as well as clichés. I was very impressed. It’s a fantastic service at a fair price. I particularly enjoyed the professionalism in their customer service. I’ve already recommended to all my writing buddies. You can’t go wrong.
Benjamin Brunsvik, author of Smoked Red

I can’t thank the ProofProfessor enough for everything they have done. They have exceeded expectation, providing some useful alternatives. This was a very brave project to take on given the nature of the subject and they tackled it with professionalism, honesty and integrity.
Claire Pickering, Richmond Pickering

The service was extremely satisfactory, thanks once again, and the publishers are happy with the first draft that has come their way.
Tom F. Wright, editor of Lecturing the Atlantic: Speech, Print, and an Anglo-American Commons 1830-1870


I was grateful that Matt accepted to proofread my thesis within such a short time frame before the deadline. His swift communication responses and approachable attitude were another added benefit. He was able to pinpoint the grammatical errors that I was not able to detect after endless reviewing of my own work.
Tamara Samman

With ProofProfessor being the first editing company I’ve ever worked with, it was a pleasant experience. Their process, their professionalism, and, most of all, their kind willingness to work with me have been extremely helpful, not only for my author work but for my professional life in general.
Amanda Nuri, author


Matt Rance did a wonderful job of proofreading my PhD thesis on the anthropology of Sierra Leonean fisherfolk. He was efficient, professional and meticulous, but also very pleasant to work with. I would recommend ProofProfessor to anyone. I feel far more confident submitting my work knowing it has been subjected to his eagle eye!
Jenny Diggins

I had thought for a long time that my novel, ‘Dispatchers: Vengeance of the Dark’, had been sufficiently edited. However, after having Matt Rance of ProofProfessor take a look at it, I discovered that it was in some serious need of work. The quick turnaround time and attractive fee guarantee my return to ProofProfessor for my future novels. Thanks ever so much again.
Andrew Lamb, author

Since my novel will soon be published in Britain, I almost daily have to write emails and letters in English. Matt is always ready to correct my correspondence and that is reassuring. As an author, I cannot afford to write errors.
Jolien Janzing, Dutch author of De Meester (The Master)

You guys did an awesome job! Thanks for the fast turnaround and wonderful proofing job. I can see the attention to detail. I’ll be using your services again in the future!
Lauren Hunter, ChurchTechToday

Easy to deal with and accommodating. I’m very happy with the service I got from ProofProfessor.
David Kerekes,

I’ve only dipped my toe into the document you sent, but I can see it as a viable way to bullet proof a novel. I’m very satisfied with the results.
Mikey Neumann, author

This was my first experience of hiring a professional proofreader, so when I approached ProofProfessor I was delighted to be provided with a sample of what to expect, a careful and friendly conversation about what I wanted, and a real interest in my project that gave me the confidence to take the plunge. The ProofProfessor team not only spotted mistakes my eyes (and computer software) had evidently glossed over in the dozens of self-edits I had already completed, but also provided me with an honest and helpful reader’s report, plus editorial suggestions for the text itself. My text is now tighter, with repeated words, weak intensifiers and ambiguous phrases deleted and revised, and the punctuation and grammar throughout are now consistent – and, more importantly, correct! So I would highly recommend the ProofProfessor service to new and experienced authors alike – especially if you are considering self-publishing and want your text to be as professionally presented as possible within a tight budget. 
Garry Abbott, author of The Dimension Scales

I needed a good proofreader for a large private commission for the history of a family and their property across the UK. Not wanting to spend too much, but also be assured of a thorough job, I turned to ProofProfessor. Matt was extremely helpful and understanding, and offered an excellent proofreading service – including all my complicated historical references! A reliable and efficient service, I was really impressed.
Melanie Backe-Hansen, House Historian, author of Historic Streets & Squares: The Secrets On Your Doorstep 

Anyone who is in any doubt about whether or not they need a proofreader should send their work to Matt at ProofProfessor. His attention to detail is second to none. I thought my manuscript was good enough for publication – it wasn’t. Not only did he find hundreds of small grammatical errors I’d missed, but also a few real howlers. I know from experience of self-publishing on Amazon that readers and reviewers pick up on these. What could have been a 5* review can quickly turn into a 2* one. Not only is Matt thorough and efficient, he is also quick. I needed my 50,000+ word manuscript back within a week and he delivered as promised. A first-class service, and I won’t be looking anywhere else for my future work. 
Jason Ayres, author of The Time Bubble 

Thank you for the speedy turnaround. I can’t praise the ProofProfessor team enough. They were very methodical and diligent in their work, providing an excellent service and very good value for money. I can recommend them for proofreading and editing, and I will certainly use them again.
Martin Lamport, author of The Doomsday Infection

I have to admit, as a published author, I was pretty skeptical about using any website for copyediting. Plus, when I realized they were based in England, I had to wonder: Would he change all my z’s to s’s? But since I heard about ProofProfessor from a trusted author friend who’d had a great experience, I decided to give them a shot. Absolutely brilliant. The Professor caught spelling mistakes, homonym missteps, minuscule spacing errors and more. I’m sold on ProofProfessor--and for a really great price, I might add. Only problem is, now I’m super hesitant to hit “print” without the Professor’s approval!
Carolyn Evans, author of Forty Beads

We’ve turned to ProofProfessor with short turnaround times and they’ve been efficient, skilled and speedy in their work. I’d recommend them to any publisher for quality proofing work.
Mark Buckland, Cargo Publishing

Thank you, ProofProfessor, for doing such a thorough job on my manuscript. I was impressed with your work and the turnaround time, despite the obstacles presented by the dialect in my novel. I will definitely be using you again.
Liz Kerr, author of Journey to the Other Side

I used ProofProfessor for my first contemporary romance novel, and was bowled over by the expeditiousness and efficiency of their services. Truth be told, I had thought my manuscript didn’t contain many errors due to the numerous times I ‘self-edited’. But ProofProfessor picked up on every little error in my work that would have most likely gone unnoticed, and errors that were so glaring I wanted to cover my eyes in shame! The suggestions he made were excellent, and if there was a sentence that seemed askew, ProofProfessor straightforwardly pointed out that the sentence simply did not make any sense. In short, I get a lot more than proofreading at a most reasonable price from ProofProfessor. Therefore, when it was time for my second manuscript to be proofread, I didn’t even think twice about using ProofProfessor. I intend on using ProofProfessor’s services for all my future projects.
S. Ann Cole,, author of Mr. Mysterious in Black and Love Has a Name

This was my first time using a proofreader for my work. ProofProfessor was an incredible proofreader for me. A qualitative thesis needs good quality for interpreting the findings. ProofProfessor helped me in choosing words and finding grammatical errors in my thesis. The ability of extensive proofreading helps my qualitative thesis… Thank you, Prof ☺ … I love your work <3
Yunita Fitria, International Islamic University Malaysia

ProofProfessor provided me with the required assistance that I needed to finalise my Doctorate thesis. Thanks to them, I’m confident with the level of my thesis. They were professional, punctual and very analytical in their proofreading. I recommend them to postgraduate students, especially those similar to my case, whose English is not their native language.
Rabaa Alsumaiti, Dubai, UAE

To say that the ProofProfessor team are meticulous in their approach is really to direct you to their very clever proofreading software, which seems to be able to root out even the most hidden and unseen errors and inconsistencies. This is clearly something of a first in the industry, and should be widely used by publishers and authors seeking a final text as close as possible to 100% accuracy.
Graham Cook, Writersworld

Thank you very much for such a quick turnaround. I will have more projects in the future and I will be coming back to you and will certainly be recommending your service. I think you have a great business model. 
Niamh Murphy, author

Since I am from non-native country, employing a professional proofreader for my master thesis is necessary. ProofProfessor has satisfied me with his excellent job: checking and correcting some grammatical errors that I made, giving some valuable comments on the word choice, and ensuring the consistency of my language structure. His punctuality is also notable. Thank you, ProofProfessor. Great job!
Qurroh Ayuniyyah, masters student at the International Islamic University, Malaysia

Jestem bardzo wdzięczna ProofProfessorowi za wykonanie korekty angielskiej wersji mojej strony internetowej. Jako tłumacz chciałam, aby moja strona firmowa promowała profesjonalny wizerunek i wywierała dobre wrażenie na potencjalnych klientach. Nie mogłam sobie pozwolić na żadne błędy! ProofProfessor świetnie wywiązał się z zadania. Jego wiedza teoretyczna w zakresie gramatyki języka angielskiego jest niezrównana. Nie tylko zlokalizował i poprawił on błędy, lecz również objaśnił mi wprowadzone poprawki. Jego usługi mogę polecić wszystkim osobom poszukującym doskonałego korektora, który sprawi, że tekst będzie 
I am very grateful to ProofProfessor for proofreading the English copy of my website. As a translator, I wanted my business website to promote a professional image and make a good impression on potential clients. I could not afford to have any errors! ProofProfessor did a fantastic job. His theoretical knowledge of English grammar is unparalleled. He not only located errors and rectified them, but also explained the corrections. I would recommend his services to anyone looking for an excellent proofreader who can make their text mistake-free.
Katarzyna E. Slobodzian-Taylor, Mastermind Translations

One of my authors is considering dedicating a shrine in his house to ProofProfessor. I think that’s a good idea: highly competent work, great service and competitive pricing.
Brad Thompson, Ashgrove Publishing

I have been very impressed with the service given by the team at ProofProfessor. Not only are they accurate and thorough, but also incredibly speedy in handling all that was required. On many occasions, submitted work was returned within 24 hours, enabling myself to continue working on my project without delay. Emails were answered swiftly in a professional and friendly manner. The price is fantastic: such a small fee for the feeling of confidence gained knowing your work is grammatically correct. I would definitely recommend ProofProfessor and I hope to be submitting further work to them in the future.
Olly Pike, childrens author

I used the ProofProfessor for my Kickstarter campaign and was surprised by the speed, professionalism and kindness of this service. Will definitely book more gigs, way to go!
Robert Kouba, film director

I was impressed by the speed and painstaking efficiency with which ProofProfessor was able to locate the spelling errors and inconsistencies on our website: thankfully, they took the job right out of our hands! Once we have input the corrections, our website will be even more user-friendly, and also continue to present us in a good PR fashion to the site’s users and visitors. 
Yvonne Neuman, VITAL For Children

Your corrections and comments are invaluable and ‘right on the money’. You are already at the top of my new ‘best proofreaders’ list. I shall strongly recommend you to other writers, and will definitely come back with future work.
Nikki Bridgman

I appreciate the service rendered by ProofProfessor. Our proofreading order was fulfilled quickly and thoroughly. Highly recommended!
Volodymyr Ulyanets,

I used the team at ProofProfessor to review our website and I was amazed at the amount of errors they found with grammar and spelling, this is despite the content on our site having been professionally and carefully written. I would strongly recommend them to other website owners, it is easy for a poorly written piece of content to cause a visitor to hit the back button, whereas a properly written piece of text can turn more visitors into new business. Thanks again for all your help and the excellent input.
Simon Chapple, Total SEO

ProofProfessor heeft met verbazingwekkende snelheid en grondigheid twee wetenschappelijke manuscripten voor mij gecorrigeerd. Hoewel ik gebruik had gemaakt van spellingscontrole en de tekst al diverse keren had doorgenomen, vond ProofProfessor er toch nog verschillende spelfouten in. Hij maakte mij bovendien attent op inconsequent gebruik van termen en afkortingen. Voor een woord met een, binnen de ‘zakelijke’ context, opvallend emotionele lading gaf ProofProfessor mij een neutraler alternatief. De minimale vertraging die het proeflezen van de tekst met zich meebracht woog ruim op tegen de professionele uitstraling van het eindresultaat.
ProofProfessor corrected two scientific (veterinary) manuscripts for me with amazing speed and thoroughness. Although I had made use of a spell checker and had already gone through the text a couple of times, ProofProfessor still found several spelling mistakes in it. He also alerted me to inconsistent use of terms and abbreviations. ProofProfessor gave me a neutral alternative for a word which, in a ‘business’ context, had a distinctly emotional charge. The minimum delay involved in having the text proofread was amply compensated for by the professional appearance of the end result.
Sylvia Djajadiningrat-Laanen, Universiteitskliniek voor Gezelschapsdieren, Universiteit Utrecht

Soon after requesting proofreading for general spelling mistakes, ProofProfessor contacted me to discuss if it would not be better to check my work more thoroughly. A few pages served as an example, and I was quite quickly convinced that my work would benefit greatly from this. I spent the whole weekend improving my work, and moreover I think it actually improved my writing: I appear to be very consistent in my mistakes. So I was very happy with the result!
Eva Deckers, Technische Universiteit Eindhoven
I decided to self-publish my teen novel on Kindle. ProofProfessor were professional, quick and excellent value. I would highly recommend them. They offered a choice of either a digital copy, or a marked-up hardcopy, catering for individual preferences. Overall a delight to work with. 
Ruth Patterson, author of Barefoot

ProofProfessor has always provided an incredible service both in speed and detail. They are incredibly thorough and can be relied upon to catch anything that has gone awry.
Charles Moriarty, fine art photographer, and author of Before Frank

Matt at ProofProfessor did a great job copyediting our book, The Curious Advantage. He accommodated a fast turnaround with great attention to detail and consistency. We would gladly engage again on any future books we may write.
Laïki Publishing

When I approached ProofProfessor I had already edited my full novel three times, printed and proofread it, and expected to find few errors. I couldn’t believe how many they found! Most were punctuation errors, but there were a few spelling mistakes I never would have noticed and even a couple of missing words. Without Matt’s keen eye and advanced software, there’s no doubt I would have put out an inferior product. I have worked with ProofProfessor twice now and look forward to working with them on future titles.
Adam Austin, author of The Inner Lands: Something Stirs

Working with Matt at ProofProfessor has immensely improved my book. I needed a proofreader to go through the manuscript and edit my work. The work Matt did was extensive and meticulous. I am looking forward to finding a publisher and knowing that my book will be clear of any typing errors, duplication and grammatical errors. Matt has been very helpful and professional at all times: he gave feedback on my work and was very thorough with the proofread and editing process, delivered on time. It was a pleasure working with him and I highly recommend ProofProfessor to authors.
Morgan Murday, author of Dyslexia Exposed

Many thanks to ProofProfessor for the great service. These guys are very helpful and did a great job proofreading my writing project. The price was very reasonable and I got my short story back very quickly. I would highly recommend them and certainly would use the service again for any future projects. Thanks again for a job well done.
Wendy Scott, author of Billy’s New Camera

We worked with ProofProfessor to apply a sheen of accuracy and professionalism to our book What we get wrong about people. The attention to detail (some might call it pedantry) was hugely reassuring, and the process was quick and efficient enough to fit into our stretched deadline.
Tom Whitwell, Managing Consultant, Fluxx

Efficient, reliable and friendly service. Matt looks carefully at your work, he engages with it, and provides you with assistance, if you have any issues. I appreciated his help with my manuscripts.
Despina Katsirea, author

Matt was attentive and very much in touch throughout the process ... I’m just happy you found all those issues, which makes the book the solid thing it is. Thanks very much for your help with this labour of love.
Adam Roberts, A Nos Amours

I know ProofProfessor for when our article needs to be proofread, and the journal gives us their trusted name. It was so easy and a fast response when working with ProofProfessor: even in the Christmas holiday they still finished our article as requested. Thank you very much for helping us make our manuscript easy to read, as English is not my mother language. I will use ProofProfessor’s services each time we need proofreading.
Wiwin Setyari, researcher

ProofProfessor has an amazing ability to spot every tiny mistake. Even If your document has some non-English words ProofProfessor can spot the misspell. It is obvious that It has been checked from more than one source and the speed of the feedback is great. Every detail including dash recommendations are crucial suggestions for important documents. I highly recommend his service, if you seek a professional, fast and accurate proofreading service.
Emre Mineoglu, filmmaker

I am so grateful for the ProofProfessor, who has started saving me 100s of hours of checking spelling and errors so I can spend more time making sure the storyline is as good as it can be.

John Eaton, author of the Spid the Spider book series

I have found Matt from ProofProfessor a very helpful editor. As an editor myself, I edit my work thoroughly and then think the result is perfect. But when Matt reads it, he makes suggestions that consistently enhance the feasibility of the work. He indeed has an eye for detail!

Sharifullah Dorani, author of The Lone Leopard and America in Afghanistan

I am new to writing and was a bit hesitant to hand over my book to an unknown editor. ProofProfessor came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Matt was extremely helpful and quick to answer all my questions regarding the editing process. I am very pleased with the final result and will have no hesitation using them again! Thanks for an awesome job!

Missy Matthias, author

I have recently used ProofProfessor to carry out a further edit of my crime novel, The Bad Samaritan. Matt was very easy to work with and found many ways of correcting and tidying up my book. I am working on the sequel, The Penitent Thief, and will definitely use Matt’s services again.

Lyon Bell, author

I recently used ProofProfessor for the first time. I am very grateful for their advice, help and support. I am especially grateful for Matt’s help, his prompt replies and advice.

Louise Lindley

I was responsible for organising the sponsorship for ‘The Remarkable Journey of Mr Prins’ by Aletta Stevens. Matt at ProofProfessor, with his extensive experience in publishing, project-managed the book from Word file through to finished paperback copies, liaising with the publishers, as well as editing, proofreading and indexing, and delivering an end product that all concerned were absolutely delighted with!
