Our Proofreading Process

All proofreading done at NTP makes use of the Microsoft Track Changes feature in Word. This aids in providing a detailed editing service that is transparent and professional.

2 Copies

You will receive 2 copies of your work;

An ‘Edited’ copy and a ‘Clean’ copy.

Any changes made will be visible whether your PC is windows or Mac.


In Windows any deleted text will have a line through it and all inserted text will be underlined.

Whereas, on a Mac all deleted text will appear on the right hand margin and all inserted text will appear in the main body of the text highlighted.

Moreover, comments made by our editors regarding your work will appear on the right hand side of the screen in the changes column.


The Microsoft Track changes function can be turned on or off by navigating to the ‘Review’ tab at the top of the screen, followed by clicking ‘Track Changes’.

The changes we will make

Our editors proofread for grammar and punctuation, and edit for structure, clarity and style. The changes are based on the nature and context of your work.

The changes we will make will tackle the following:



Consistency of verb tenses
