The Proofreader Manuscript


When your work is ready for proofreading...

Please rename your document if possible as follows:

First-name_Last-name_today’s-date. For instance, if your first name is Mark, your last name is Carpenter and today’s date is 2 July 2014, the name of your file would be Mark_Carpenter_02072014.

If you send more than one file to us on the same day,

Please name the second file Mark_Carpenter_02072014_2, The third file Mark_Carpenter_02072014_3 and so on.

Add to the body of the email,

the academic field of your document and deadline. Format: Font size 12 and line spacing 1.5 and You can submit using Microsoft word attached file.

Finally, please send that file or manuscript to:
Email: [ with no spaces ]
or kindly send to

Please note: the deadline should be the time and date you need it in your e-mail inbox.

As soon as The Proofreader Manuscript receives your document, we will send you an acknowledgement letter confirming the price. Even if heavy editing is required and we have to spend more time on your document than we anticipated we guarantee that the price will not go up.

When we have finished proofreading

we will return two files to you: a tracked version and a clean version of your proofread document.

The tracked version is named yourfilename_tracked_version and; the clean version is named yourfilename_clean_version.
Using our previous example, these would be: Mark_Carpenter_02072014_tracked_version and Mark_Carpenter_02072014_clean_version.

The advantage of this method is that in the tracked version of your document you can easily move between the changes the proofreader has made. The clean version is ready to print out and you do not have to type in all the changes yourself.
