“Good quality and fast service. I ordered for 40 pages (19,000 words) and got it back in 48 hours. Within ten minutes of making my order the editor had started working on it. They made a lot of edits and now it reads so much better. I am very pleased.”

“I came to Cambridge Proofreading after using a different website that I was disappointed in. I have to admit I only used them as they were a bit cheaper and I really regret it. I ended up sending my paper to Cambridge and they did a great job.”
