The Transpose package is a proofreading and copy-editing service for fiction, non-fiction and academic authors.

It’s also an extremely important service for business owners and thought leaders aiming to publish for brand recognition either as a self-publishing endeavour or by finding a publisher.  

Aspiring authors, whether taking the self-publishing route or by submitting their work to publishers or literary agents, will need to put their best foot forward. The most productive way to achieve this ambition is to ensure their writing and content is as flawless as possible. 

Our aim with Transpose is to establish that an author’s writing meets the commercial reality and professional standards of the publishing industry.
