SCPR Limited - Plain English training and editing for the public and private sector

Editing services

Our editing services will transform your documents into plain and simple English so that your customers can read and understand them.

Email a copy of the document to ku.oc.rpcs@yelrihs and we'll tell you how much we think it will cost to turn it into plain English. If you accept our estimate, we can start work on it straight away.

We'll work in partnership with your staff to make sure that our editing doesn't conflict with any special needs you might have, such as legal constraints. Working together, we'll make sure that the project is finished on time and within budget.

We edit the document electronically, so you can track all our changes. Normally, we need about five days to complete the editing, but we're always ready to meet faster turnaround times if necessary.

Our prices

A general rule is that we charge 20 pence a word for all our editing work.

If you prefer, you can work out the cost for your job yourselves, because our charges are based on the exact number of words in a document.

Using the standard Microsoft Word Count facility on your computer, simply multiply the number of words in your document by £0.20 and you'll arrive at the amount we would charge before adding VAT.

As always, we're committed to providing all our clients with best value for money services.

"We’ve had rave reviews from all the staff who have worked with Shirley. It’s so easy to get caught up in the world of jargon and public sector gobbledygook and too often we forget about the people on the receiving end of what we’re writing. Shirley’s really helped us to think more about what we write and the tone we use."
