Proofed Reaches 250-Million-Word Milestone!

As the company continues to grow, the 500-million-word mark is next.

Proofed’s expert editors have now reviewed more than 250 million words in tens of thousands of documents for customers around the world, cementing our status as one of the fastest growing and most trusted service providers in the world of proofreading and editing.

For a sense of scale, 250 million words are almost 200 times more than what you’ll find in Marcel Proust’s seven-volume In Search of Lost Time, the Guinness World Record holder for the longest novel in history, approximately 280 times more words than the complete works of Shakespeare and almost 450 times more than the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

To put it another way, over the years, we’ve checked quite a large number of words, made corrections and provided feedback to help writers clearly communicate their ideas in everything from educational materials and advertising copy to personal emails and full-length novels. Additionally, with the Proofed platform now supporting more than 15 common document formats, we’ve also become more flexible.
