Hire the best proofreaders in Australia


‘Your’ or ‘you're’? ‘Their’ or ‘they're’? Such questions about language use have been the bane of writers from time immemorial. Spelling or grammar errors are precisely the kind of details that can damage the quality of your work, so it’s imperative that your book goes through several rounds of editing before publication. The final round is proofreading, which should be tackled by an experienced and reliable professional, someone who has the knowledge and ability to guide your project to success. Publishing a high-quality final product shows respect to both your career and your readers.


Whether your manuscript consists of a fiction translation or a business or health book, you’ll find a proofreader for hire in Australia or beyond on Reedsy’s marketplace. Our proofreaders are some of the most accomplished people in the publishing industry, and have worked on a wide variety of genres for big names in the publishing industry, such as Harcourt and Oxford University Press.
