Yours is a great website. It is visually exciting. It is technically brilliant. It has bells, whistles and a great Google ranking.
Oh, but the spelling. And the grammar. And the overlong sentences, tangled thoughts, inappropriate tone and, ugh, those grocers’ apostrophes.
All we can say is that your language is letting you down.
It is probably costing you customers too.
Enter Shiny Words. We are Fleet Street sub-editors with years of experience. We are journalists at the top of our craft who can see a typo from 40 paces — and we are experts at making your words gleam.
We will erase errors. We will fact-check. We will make sure your copy is clear, brief and enjoyable. We will check your style for consistency and we will even advise you on possible legal pitfalls.
If you use English as a second language, we can advise on presenting your site in native English. We will help you lose the rough edges that come with a straight translation, adding idiom if necessary.
Does your site needs the Shiny Words' treatment? Contact us today for a no-obligation estimate.
