Communicative English has been active in copyediting for many years. The documents we edit are usually written by non-native speakers of English, but we work on texts by native speakers as well.

Our Clients

Business World

We welcome texts from the business world, from organizations both large and small. Our language training activities have helped to give us special insight into the specific needs that companies have since our clients for these activities are generally from the business world.

Politics, government

Many of the texts we edit are written by people in public life. This includes well-known EU leaders—such as José Manuel Barroso, formerly President of the European Commission, and Herman van Rompuy, formerly President of the European Council—and national leaders as well, including (at the time) Prime Ministers Jan Peter Balkenende (the Netherlands), Silvio Berlusconi (Italy), Ivo Sanader (Croatia), Yuliya Tymoshenko (Ukraine) and Lawrence Gonzi (Malta).
