If you need proofreading, translation or document authentication services we can help

Submit our online request form and we will get back to you with any questions.

We normally require a minimum of 72 hours notice to turnaround any request.

Please note for small pieces of work there may be a minimum charge of £25.00. You may also wish to review our terms and conditions.

These services are available to current LSE students, staff, and LSE applicants.

Please note during LSE examination periods we will only be accepting requests to proofread CVs/Applications/Personal Statements, Dissertations and Theses.

  • LSE students and staff: To request a service please complete this form. You will need to be logged in to your LSE account to access this.
  • LSE applicants: Please get in touch with us by email to see if we can help you. Please quote your LSE number in any correspondence.


  • What we will do is correct grammar, spelling, word order, punctuation and paragraphing.
  • What we will not do is rewrite the work so that it is more 'intelligent' or 'analytical' nor will we make content changes.
  • Those of you who are not current LSE students should please bear in mind what we offer is a proofreading service and our expertise lies in Social Science subject areas.
  • You can review the prices for this service on this page.
  • If you are an LSE student, you should make yourself aware of the Statement on editorial help for students’ written work: guidance for students, supervisors and examiners.


We can normally provide translation in all the languages we teach. We can confirm whether we can provide a translation in one of these languages when you enquire using our online form.


Quick assessment

This is useful for anyone who is applying to university, going on an exchange programme or applying for jobs when you do not have a formal language qualification or have one that is a little out of date.

Document authentication

Please note this is not a legal service, we are not a Notary Public and what we state on the cover letter is this; 'This document has been checked for factual accuracy but not for style and grammar. It is not necessarily a certified translation’.

  • This is useful for students who need an authenticated translation of their degree certificates into English or other such documents usually required for university application.
  • We can of course also translate the document too, however, you may wish to translate the document yourself and we are therefore able to check and authenticate the document more quickly and at a lower cost.
  • When you translate a document yourself the minimum charge is the price of an authentication and this is per document.
  • Please be aware that if a document you have translated requires changes you may incur an additional charge.
