Let your manuscript shine
Manuscript Proofreading Services
CV Nation's manuscript proofreading service helps authors get their manuscripts in immaculate condition.
CV Nation's manuscript proofreading service is an essential tool for authors in the UK, United States and across the world. Whatever genre you write in, our manuscript proofreading service will make your manuscript shine.
By the time you're ready to hand your manuscript over to editors, agents or publishers, your eyes will have become so accustomed to your writing that you won't be able to find all the errors. Grammatical errors, spelling mistakes and other general writing mistakes all find a way to remain on the page.
As such, it's important to have your manuscript proofread by a professional. This will ensure it is void of mistakes and in great shape prior to submission.
Our manuscript proofreading service includes:
- Rectifying all grammatical, spelling, punctuation and typographical errors
- Suggestions on potential improvement areas, such as sentence structure and word choice
- Editing manuscript format and layout in line with editor/agent expectations

Our Manuscript Proofreading Process
1. We receive your manuscript and start proofreading it.
2. We correct all errors. This includes grammatical, spelling, punctuation and typographical errors.
3. We highlight and comment on every change we implement in a 'tracked changes' version of your manuscript. We also offer suggestions on issues that you may want to consider changing, such as word choice.
4. We provide you with your new proofread and edited document, as well as your 'tracked changes' document, within two weeks.
Do We Edit Your Manuscript?
When we proofread your manuscript, we edit and rectify all errors that we come across. We also highlight and explain each change that we make via 'tracked changes' in a separate document.
However, we only execute edits and changes to issues that are erroneous.
For more complex editing issues, such as pacing, structure and consistency, we will not execute any changes. We will simply highlight the issue and offer our suggestions.
Likewise, if we come across words or sentences that are not erroneous but we believe there is room for improvement, we will highlight the issue and offer our suggestions.
Tracked Changes and In-Document Comments
When we have completed proofreading your work, we provide you with two versions of your manuscript. One will be the new version, ready to submit to agents or editors, with all errors rectified. The second version will be a 'tracked changes' document.
In the tracked changes version of your manuscript, every change we have made will be highlighted and explained.
We do this because we value transparency. We believe it's important that you understand exactly what we have done and why we have done it.
How Long Does it Take?
Turnaround for our manuscript proofreading service is two weeks. This gives us time to accurately proofread your manuscript and maintain our high quality standards.

'I used CV Nation to proofread my romance novel and I was extremely pleased with the result. Not only did they correct numerous spelling and grammatical issues, but they removed misplaced words that I had missed. What I love about CV Nation's proofreading service is the fact that they highlight and explain every change they make in a separate document, which also offers suggestions for more complex changes. I will definitely use CV Nation's proofreading service again for my future manuscripts!'
