‘We produce a quality standard manual for a local Council. AOB Proofreading proof read this large document after we had design and artwork this document very quickly. As a customer I would have no hesitation in recommending AOB Proofreading for an efficient and accurate service.’

‘Before submitting my final Master of Business Administration dissertation I used AOB Proofreading services, which was at a high level of quality. The proofreading itself was excellent as the proof-reader made comments explaining what was wrong and how to improve. Additionally I was impressed at the thoroughness of the work. The deadline was met and there was a constant positive communication between both parties. I am pleased to recommend the proofreading services from AOB – and I know that other of my colleagues have also used the services with a high level of satisfaction.’

I found AOB to be very professional and responsive. From the outset, Alan was aware of my needs and matched my expectations. He is very thorough with proofing, and as such, AOB is my first port of call whenever I have documents in need of proofing.


This is my second time to use Alan’s services. I write literary fiction and he is always sensitive to the subject matter. His proofreading is flawless and he is creative with his suggestions. There is also excellent follow-up service and he is very approachable in this regard. I am always confident that my work is ready for publication when he has worked on it. I highly recommend his services.


Alan has worked with Bright Blue Day for years in both a permanent and freelance capacity.
He is an excellent copychecker – diligent, thorough and flexible in how he works.
Alan not only understands the intricacies of grammar (UK and US), but is also
well-versed at proofing against brand guidelines.
So if you’re a communications agency that needs a reliable copychecker, Alan is a good man to know.
He’s also a friendly chap.


A great, efficient, speedy service. Alan proofread my sitcom episode, and was very knowledgeable about layout, and the detail of this format. He also managed to spot quite a few errors, even where I thought I’d been incredibly accurate!


AOP proofreading has helped me enormously in my uni work, in both essays and poetry. When you’re dyslexic you need a proofreader who has more than an eye for detail, especially in poetry where grammar can transpose the meaning of its structure. AOP proofreading service not only understood this, along with the mistakes dyslexia enforces, but also managed to suggest changes to gain the desired effect. The Service I received made me feel safe in the knowledge, that the nuts and bolts of my writing were watertight and finely tuned, ultimately leading me to better grades.
