We’re a diverse team of copywriters, copyeditors, proofreaders, translators and designers.
We’re a team of content creators obsessed with getting every little detail just right.
Our in-house team is supported by a fantastic team of hand-picked copywriters, editors, proofreaders, designers and translators. Given our obsession with quality, we’re pretty fussy about who we work with. All our freelancers meet our strict criteria: they excel at what they do, they’ve successfully completed our rigorous onboarding process and of course they’re subject to our strict quality assurance procedures. Once they’re on board, they become key and often long-standing members of our team. This close-knit way of working is what enables us to deliver outstanding work.
Tate & Clayburn was born out of a shared love of language and a passion for the written word.
Rosie Tate and Peter Clayburn, both armed with first-class degrees in Modern Languages from Oxford University, had forged successful careers in publishing, working for the likes of the BBC, the UN and Oxford University Press.
In 2012, convinced that there was a need for editing and proofreading services that focused on outstanding quality, they founded what was then called The Proofreading Company with the aim of filling that gap.
With happy customers asking for help on an ever greater variety of projects, the business soon started offering design, copywriting and translation services too.
In 2020, the company achieved certification for compliance with internationally recognised quality management standard ISO 9001:2015, demonstrating its commitment to continuous improvement and customer care.
Soon after, The Proofreading Company rebranded as Tate & Clayburn to reflect the range of writing services it had come to offer. The company is now proud to work with an exciting range of clients across the world, from EU institutions and the UK government to a plethora of leading brands and academic researchers.
At Tate & Clayburn, quality is at the heart of everything we do. We never compromise on it at any stage of our process.
Even the best writers need an editor: a trusted reader with one eye on the detail and the other on the bigger picture. Whatever your project, our expert copyeditors will look at every aspect of your writing to take it from good to outstanding.
When you’ve worked hard on a project, you don’t want typos or little inconsistencies to let it down. Our experienced proofreaders will bring a fresh pair of eyes to make sure nothing slips through the net – so you can tick your project off your to-do list with confidence.
Good writing is fine – it’s all around us – but truly great writing can change the world. Literally. We work closely with a team of talented copywriters who can work their magic on any project you throw at them – from punchy web copy to insightful thought pieces.
In an increasingly connected world, communicating effectively in multiple languages can be the key to success. Our skilled linguists will express your ideas accurately and eloquently in a translation you can trust.
We’ve achieved certification for the globally recognised ISO 9001:2015 quality management standard. That means rigorous quality assurance processes, an unyielding focus on customer satisfaction and independent external auditing to hold us to our promises.
Quality, quality, quality. We never let it slip. It’s our watchword, our constant goal and the focus of everything we do.
We’re regularly on the lookout for exceptional people to join our team.
