Proofreading & Editing Services in Adelaide


The capital city and commercial centre of South Australia (and home to 75% of South Australia’s population with over 1.3 million inhabitants), Adelaide is noted for its electronic systems, manufacturing sector (heavily bolstered by defence contracts) and defence industry. The city experiences hot dry summers and short winters (although hail is common), both of which benefit the state’s wine industry. Adelaide boasts a vibrant arts scene and most bars feature nightly live music acts.

Capstone Editing has an extensive presence in Adelaide and our editors have experience in providing premium copyediting services to the postgraduate students and academics of the four Adelaide-based universities. You can visit our testimonials page to read about the experiences of some of our past clients.
