Website Proofreading Get a QuoteSpot errors before your customers do, and increase your revenue.

Website proofreading increases professionalism and revenue.
NYU business professor Panos Ipeirotis demonstrated that demand for products and hotels increases if reviews are well written and without spelling errors, even if the review is negative. Based on this research, Zappos.com—a site owned by Amazon—pays to have its site proofread. They know that website proofreading isn't just about looking better; it's about bringing in more money.
What do our past website proofreading clients say?
Our website, GreenMountainGrills.com, needed proofreading. We turned to a real pro in the industry, ProofreadingServices.com, to perform this task and help us gain even more credibility.

Combined Proofreading and Editing Get StartedSmooth out grammar and style issues before publication.
This service is what we're best known for among businesspeople. It's for small businesses, Fortune 500 companies, and every organization in between that needs spelling, grammar, word choice, and sentence structure help but doesn't need our Deluxe Business Package.

Proofreading without Editing Get StartedRemove distracting typos and embarrassing errors to ensure a cleaner read.
If you need a final check for minor errors before you publish, we offer deals for proofreading only without any additional editorial services. This service is for "clean" texts, defined as the proofreader being expected to find one or two errors at the most per page. (For text that isn't "clean," the best option is our combined proofreading and editing service.)
Our skilled proofreading team specializes in catching typos, missing words, and spelling mistakes that can affect readers' confidence in your business. Contact us to get a quote (or see the per-word rates below), and let's get your files ready for publication.

Writing and Rewriting Get StartedGet more search traffic and clients with blog posts, website copy, eBooks, and more.
Many of our editors are writers: Some write technical guides, some write marketing copy, some ghostwrite full-length thought leadership books for busy CEOs, and some overhaul website content strategies to increase traffic via search engine optimization (SEO). We've written creative marketing copy to support the launch of Proper Orange, and we've written hundreds of blog posts and FAQs for the EB5 Affiliate Network, learning the specifics of their complex industry and earning them hundreds of thousands of dollars.
After consulting with us for free, clients generally choose from one of two services, writing or rewriting.
What is rewriting?
Rewriting is less expensive and generally involves one of these scenarios:
- Changing the words, sentence structure, flow, and other attributes of a document to produce a completely new document (e.g., a 10-page online guide to selecting the best B2C marketing software would be distilled to its main points and rewritten so that it uses completely new language and is more succinct).
- Changing the focus of one article to another (e.g., a blog post about tutoring services in Houston would be rewritten so that it is about San Francisco and so it reads entirely differently).
In both cases, the goal is always to produce new, unique content that is useful and 100% plagiarism-free. A common request we respond to is "I like these 20 blog posts. Can you please rewrite them so they're 100% plagiarism-free and in the voice of my site?"
How does writing, which we offer, differ from rewriting?
We can write content 100% from scratch. If you want a blog post about how to select the perfect life insurance policy or a guidebook for the safe operation of the drill press you manufacture, we can do that. If you want an eBook to give away to prospective clients about common pitfalls when choosing a mortgage lender, we can do that. There's nothing in the business world we can't write (as long as it is ethical).
Rewriting is always less expensive than writing from scratch.
What content do we write and rewrite?
Here is a brief array:
- Blog posts – A typical engagement: A client wants 10 posts monthly, each about 500 words. We provide 30 topics based on extensive SEO research. The client selects 10. We write, proofread, and deliver their posts.
- Website copy – "About" page text, product descriptions, etc.
- eBooks – For online lead generation, brand building, etc.
- Thought leadership books – We can write full-length, publication-ready books in the voice of your CEO.
- White papers – We can thoroughly research a topic or work with existing research from your organization to provide a comprehensive report on an issue, a new technology, a service, etc.
- Case studies – We can conduct and transcribe research interviews on which to base a case study, or we can work with data from interviews you've conducted with clients.
- Newsletters (email and print)
- Press releases
How should you select a writer? It's not just about saving money—it's about quantified results.
If you're in the market for website content, product descriptions, or blog articles, the goal is to get as many qualified leads from search engines as possible. That's where an extensive knowledge of SEO comes in. If you're evaluating writers only on cost, you'll pay for that mistake down the line when the content you've "saved" money on doesn't draw in visitors or, worse, leads to algorithmic penalties that cause Google to demote your site.
Here's a great way to tell if the writing team you're hiring knows what they're doing when it comes to search engines: Have they discussed the following terms and topics with you?
- Anchor posts
- Evergreen content
- Repurposing existing content
- When you should rewrite vs. when you should write
- Balancing keyword density with natural, engaging language people actually want to read and share
- Call-to-action best practices
- Avoiding duplicate content penalties
- Conversion intent associated with search queries
- Long-tail keywords
- Gross profit and customer lifetime value (CLV) and how those inform an SEO strategy
- Domain authority
- Onsite vs. offsite SEO
Our writing clients have seen results:
ProofreadingServices.com's writing and rewriting work has helped us increase revenue by hundreds of thousands of dollars while keeping our margin steady.— Sam Silverman, managing partner at EB5 Affiliate Network
Aiming to boost the Google rankings of my Houston-based fashion company, I approached ProofreadingServices.com for SEO writing. Their team provided 10 posts of 500 words according to my specifications, all optimized for specific primary and secondary keywords based on my target demographic. Not only were the posts search engine optimized, leading to increased traffic, but they were also interesting, compelling readers to inquire about wholesale and retail orders and thus boosting my revenue.— Zia ur Rehman, brand development for a Houston-based clothing company
For projects with budgets of US$2,000 or more, we offer a free content strategy consultation. Contact us today to discuss the SEO topics above and an SEO content plan that'll draw qualified leads to your website.
Don't overlook translation as a way to effortlessly get more clients.
Having your existing content translated is often even easier and less expensive than having new content written.
Expand the reach of business documents you've already written by having us translate your blog posts, web copy, case studies, and more into any of the +100 languages we offer. It's an effortless way for you to expand your global reach. You simply provide the file or a link to the existing content and tell us the language(s) you'd like, and we'll deliver translated content that'll help you expand to new markets (including getting ranked in those markets' search engines). Learn more about translation services for businesses.
Writing and Rewriting Services FAQs
1. What do you include in your services?
Unlike most companies, we include topic brainstorming, keyword research, competitor analysis, and title generation in our prices. Most companies don't provide any of that, and the few companies that do provide these services do not offer them at a single, transparent flat rate.
2. Are there less expensive services?
Yes, many, both because they work with non-native English speakers and because they lack deep SEO knowledge.
If you just want a low price and low-quality content, we're not the right fit. If enhancing your brand and passively driving traffic to your website from search engines is what matters, we're the perfect fit.
3. Do you offer volume discounts?
Yes, volume discounts are available.

Business and General Translation Get StartedExpert translation of business documents and websites.
Why Does an English Proofreading Service Offer Translation?
We began offering translation services because our English proofreading and editing clients were spending so many hours writing and perfecting their documents that it only made sense to convert those same texts into other languages. This gave rise to our sister company, TranslationServices.com. Both companies provide language services, but each focuses on its own area of expertise. Our clients work with the same team, so they can be assured of the same service and product quality. We've since helped many businesses expand their reach to the 86% of the world that doesn't speak English.
- iDashboards, a software company, asked us to proofread marketing copy and then translate it into Spanish and Italian so they could expand their reach to the 437 million people who speak Spanish and the 63 million people who speak Italian.
- Cybercube.io had us translate the script for their eSports video into Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese, Spanish, and Portuguese to make their service accessible to the over 2 billion people who speak those languages.
What do business translation clients say about the value we provide?
TranslationServices.com greatly simplified the translation process for my businesses. I needed to translate video scripts, web content, and product overviews, and my target languages ranged from Vietnamese, to Portuguese, to Swedish. Some of my material also contained technical terminology that required a translator with experience in eSports. Knowing that TranslationServices.com works with a team of human translators, all of whom are native speakers of the target language ... gave me peace of mind that my material was translated accurately.— Dasha Rolina, UKAD (translation of product information into Korean, Simplified Chinese, Vietnamese, Spanish, and Portuguese and translation of website content into Swedish)
When I approached TranslationServices.com to translate my voiceover script, I needed translations that not only conveyed the information correctly in the target languages but also maintained the tone of the original script. TranslationServices.com's translation team did exactly that, providing translated scripts that were as effective in European Portuguese and Korean as they had been in English. I would certainly recommend them to other businesses that require accurate translation.— Anna Tsymbalist, Cybercube (translation of amendments to a voiceover script from English into European Portuguese and Korean)
When seeking a Polish to English translator for an interview about engineering and architecture techniques, my main concern was whether the translation would remain true to the essence of the original interview. I chose to work with TranslationServices.com because they [were willing to] provide 100% human translation instead of relying on software, so I knew my material would be translated accurately by a native English speaker. I am pleased with the results and would absolutely recommend their business translation services.— Damian Przybyla, Laka (translation of a 1,259-word interview about engineering and architecture techniques from Polish to American English)
Any Topic, Any Language
We can translate websites, blog posts, manuals, newsletters, eBooks, and more into Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, and many other languages, including less common languages like different dialects of Cree, Kichwa, and Ojibwe. Content we've translated has spanned industries, including transportation, ecommerce, online education, architecture, and more.
