Even the most talented writers make mistakes. Even the best proofreading software misses some.
For documents too important to have errors, the editors at Proofreading Asia make the right impression. When it comes to the rules of spelling, capitalization, consistency, formatting, word choice, punctuation, verb tense, references, proper nouns, idioms, tables, hyphens, citations, and more, your computer’s grammar and spell check simply isn’t enough.
Professional documents have professional proofreaders. Teachers, professors, clients, and business partners judge you by your writing. Don’t trust your most important documents to a machine.
The time it takes is up to you. Browse our prices and choose your rate. Turnaround times vary from up to 48 hours for shorter works to ten days for longer texts.
If you are a student submitting work to a school or university for a grade, Proofreading Asia can professionally proofread or edit your document. However, to plagiarize texts or have your academic assignments “ghost-written” (i.e. to have your work completed by someone other than yourself) is not only against our ethics but also against the laws of the Kingdom of Thailand.
If you are a business or an individual who would like original work written for a non-academic purpose, browse our Service page or contact us for information.
Absolutely. Your privacy is important to us. Documents submitted to Proofreading Asia are deleted after 30 days unless you request otherwise. Your documents and the information they contain are not sold, distributed, or publicized, and information about our clients is kept in strict confidentiality. Even the names of clients who give testimonials are changed to maintain confidentiality.
Our editors begin proofreading your document immediately after receiving payment.
For customers in Thailand, you may pay directly into our company bank account via mobile phone, ATM, or bank teller. This form of payment is instant, and our editors will begin work immediately.
For customers outside Thailand or customers who prefer not to pay directly into our bank account, you may use PayPal. Our editors will begin work as soon as your payment is cleared.
Both options are secure and easy to use.
PayPal is a secure electronic online service that enables you to pay with a credit card, debit card, or bank transfer while keeping your personal financial information private. It’s also free of charge. If you are paying by credit or debit card, setting up an account is not necessary. To learn more about this service, please visit PayPal.

After working with Proofreading Asia, I thought everyone should be aware of their superior skills and service. The price was very good and two editors worked on my thesis. I am happy to write this testimonial for them.
They have an exceptional team of editors and proofreaders on staff. I trust them with writing projects and I have even referred a few of my friends and colleagues their way. As a company, they are extremely professional and personable, and incredibly easy to work with.
They respond quickly to emails and return high-quality work – often within very tight deadlines. I highly recommend Proofreading Asia to anyone searching for a copy editor or proofreader.
My business is graphic and marketing based, so it is vitally important to use a professional proofreading company to enhance our brand image. We used Proofreading Asia to proofread and edit our brochures, and they did a fantastic job. We have since hired them to rewrite our website. We will continue to work with them in the future. Keep up the good work guys.
Proofreading Asia made my resume look professional and attractive to potential employers. I was able to get an interview at the Royal Thai Embassy in the Netherlands and was offered jobs by two different companies on my first day back in Thailand. I cannot thank them enough.
