Beware of Non-native speakers offering English services - UKcopy Copywriting and Corrections

Beware of Non-native speakers offering English services

Recently we have been redesigning our website. During the process we started looking at the websites of other people offering English Correction and Copywriting services.

What struck us most (apart from how dated some of the sites looked) is that so many of these services are run by non-native speakers. The problem with this is that how can you be sure that your English is being corrected properly if it is being done by someone who doesn’t speak English as a first language?

English Correction and Copywriting

A lifetime of experience

It seems unfair to suggest that non-native speakers can’t do a good job but the websites we looked at were littered with small errors. Simple nuances can make a huge difference and it takes a lifetime of experience and exposure to English to get things right.

Our Copywriters use English every day of their lives. They are constantly exposed to it in many different settings. From casual conversations to formal written work they are familiar with the conventions that are expected.

However good a non-native speaker is they cannot match this level of exposure and competence.

Don’t risk your livelihood on bad English Copywriting

If you need to communicate in English for your business then please don’t think that just any English Copywriters will do. Poor copy will put off your potential customers. It looks unprofessional and sometimes can even cause confusion.

Non-native speakers cannot match true native English speakers for subtlety and accuracy. If you want to be taken seriously make sure you get native English speakers to do your Copywriting and English Correction.
