An experienced international business editor, I offer proofreading and copy-editing services. My goal is to help clients produce crisp, clear, concise and compelling copy. I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP).
I have developed a good understanding of business documents, corporate thinking and company strategy in my 23 years of editing and writing about the metal and raw material industries, plus the automotive supply chain, container shipping, online privacy and cybercrime.
I can also offer an empathetic component to my work as I provide content for an organisation which supports survivors of domestic abuse. In short, I deal with social issues as well as the business world.
If English is not your first language, I can draw on many years’ experience copy-editing material from non-native writers of English to ensure accuracy in spelling, punctuation and grammar in your writing.
- That knowledge is backed up by seven years of teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) when living in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Chile and China, and 13 years spent mainly as a district reporter for evening newspapers in the UK. Consequently, I have seen the huge variety in the human condition.
Beyond my core areas of work, my interests include history, football, hiking, travelling and exploring, so I am always keen to be considered for assignments in those subject areas.
And, oh, as I am still a working journalist and content provider, I know how challenging things can sometimes be for a writer, especially when up against a tight deadline.

Steve did a detailed proof-reading of a 100 page Annual Report, comprising one third business review and two thirds detailed financial notes and commentary. This is the second time I have employed Steve’s services and on both occasions he has delighted me with his speed, responsiveness and thoroughness. Unqualified recommendation.
We highly recommend Steve Garnsey. He is very reliable, accurate reviewer and writer who never fails to meet the deadline. He is also an excellent communicator. Whenever we give him feedback to improve our product, he listens carefully, grasps exactly what we want, and swiftly makes changes accordingly. Very cooperative partner to work with.
The High Commission for Barbados to the UK engaged Steve and SG Editorial Services to proof and finalise a critical promotional document. He was very professional: quick and thorough finding errors we hadn’t imagined existed. He is highly recommended.
Steve was the proof-editor for my PhD thesis. He managed to edit a vast amount of text of around 90,000 words in a very short time and deliver a high quality piece of work. His efficiency and accuracy contributed considerably to the successful submission of my thesis. It is my pleasure to recognize his capability and I would definitely recommend him to my colleagues for proof-editing.
Steve carried out a complete proof-reading service on a very dense circa 100 page Private Placement Memorandum for Funding Affordable Homes at 48 hours notice including working through the weekend to meet our demanding timelines. His work was extremely diligent, resulting in a large number of crucial changes that materially improved the quality of the end product. Highly recommended.
I come from China and I am now a master student in London.
Steve is a very responsible proofreader, and I asked for his help three times. As a result, I am very satisfied with his high-level work on my three essays. He not only revised my language mistake, but also pointed out the knowledge mistakes, which impressed me a lot. My English is improved by his careful revise and useful suggestions. I have recommended him to my friends several times and they are also satisfied with his work.
