The Expert Editor is Australia’s leading editing and proofreading company. Even if your writing does not fall under one of these categories, we can edit or proofread it, as our professional editors are equipped to improve any document. The Expert Editor provides both editing and proofreading services. Below are the proofreading services we offer. This service is ideal for students and academics who are very confident writers. They benefit from a professional editor reviewing their work and eliminating mistakes and inconsistencies. Therefore, they can be absolutely certain that it is submission- or publication-ready. However, English as a second language (ESL) and many native-English speakers usually benefit more from an editing service, such as thesis editing, journal article editing and essay editing. We cater for all types of academic documents, including theses or dissertations, journal articles, research papers, book chapters and much more. The Expert Editor’s book proofreading service is designed to ensure that a book is mistake-free and consistent in spelling, style, format and terminology.
As a result, it will be perfect for publication. Our business proofreading service plays an important role in clear and professional business communication. Mistakes and inconsistency in language can undermine any business document and reflects poorly on the credibility of the organisation that wrote it. Clients of The Expert Editor are sometimes unsure about whether they require an editing or proofreading service. Therefore, we have created a comprehensive guide to the difference to help them make an informed choice. To provide a brief overview, editing improves the language, expression and overall quality of the writing. Positive changes are made to the writing style, word choice and sentence structure. As part of the editing process, we will also ‘proofread’ the document and eliminate spelling, grammar and punctuation mistakes. The Expert Editor’s proofreading services, on the other hand, are less ‘hands on’ than our editing services. One of our professional editors will perform the essential role of ensuring that the document is mistake-free, consistent and in perfect shape for publication.
We eliminate all surface errors, including spelling, grammar and punctuation mistakes and ensure that there are no inconsistencies in language or format. Proofreading is often the final step in the publication process. In our experience, most writers benefit more from editing as opposed to proofreading, as there is often scope to improve the quality of their writing. However, proofreading is the right choice for certain writers and documents. Writing intended for publication or distribution must communicate its message in the clearest possible way. For writing to be clear, there must be no language mistakes or inconsistencies of any kind. It may appear that eliminating surface errors in a document is relatively straightforward, and it is true that a proofreading service has less ambition than an editing one. However, a professional editor is a far more accomplished proofreader than your typical friend, family member or colleague. A professional editor understands the at times complex and confusing conventions of the English language. They are trained to be methodical, and through considerable experience can identify common errors that often appear in certain types of writing, such as a thesis, novel or business writing. The Expert Editor has a team of professional editors that are experienced in proofreading academic, book and business writing. They are native-English speakers, have high level academic qualifications, and considerable experience as professional editors. Therefore, our editors are confident and highly proficient at proofreading any type of writing. As proofreading is a less involved service than editing, it is cheaper.

The strategic importance of Corcyra was that it was a starting point for sailing west into the Mediterranean Sea and would be useful in controlling the western trade routes from Ancient Greece. The animosity between Corinth and Athens did not begin as a result of the Corcyra affair, but was started during the first Peloponnesian War. Corinth’s tactical location on the two seas put the powerful city-state into a position to become a commercial trading powerhouse in ancient Greece because of they had access to the western and eastern trade routes. But during the first Peloponnesian War, the Corinthians sided with the weaker Aeginetans, and thus became Athens enemy due to this alliance. Athens countered the Corinthians by allying themselves with Achaea and taking over control of Naupactus, known as the ‘Athenian Gibraltar’. With Athens and the Delian League controlling the ‘Athenian Gibraltar’ they now had the possibility of curtailing the Corinthian expansion into the east who were unable to challenge the Athenian dominance in the Aegean Sea. Now the Corinthians would only be able to trade in the Ionian Sea without confrontation from the Athenians (Bengtson, 1988, p.
