Editing and Proofing Services

If you have a manuscript you are interested in having proofread, or English is not your native language and you want your essay or your book gone through by a native English speaker before publication, I provide those services.

I have years of experience doing editing and proofreading and specialize in transforming rough English prose into proper academic language.

Rates are negotiable.  Drop me an email and let’s get your manuscript in publishable form.  drjewest@gmail.com.


Jim is a great person to work with: fast, accurate, a clear sense of language and an impressive knowledge of theology and church history. Working with Jim is very enjoyable, not least because of his sense of humour and the fact that he is very reliable and punctual. — Karla Boersma, Refo500


Jim has done a great job helping in the process of getting my dissertation ready for publication. His comments on my text were not only linguistically to the point, but very often also theologically substantial. It’s always a pleasure to communicate with Jim, and you’re sure to receive an answer to your questions soon. — Daniel Timmerman, Theological University, Kampen


Jim regularly checks documents for us for correct use of the English language. He does this quickly and well. Thanks, Jim!  — Jannemarie Vierbergen, Communication Officer Theological University of Apeldoorn
