About Grammar Guardians


Grammar Guardians is a language practice based in Bloemfontein that specialises

in proofreading, editing, and translation in English and Afrikaans.


We focus on proofreading, editing, translating and formatting of theses, dissertations, books, reports, study guides, scholarly articles for national

and international journals and all other types of text. Grammar Guardians is a registered vendor at the following South African universities:

Grammar Guardians offers three service packages for proofreading and editing.

We also offer layout and formatting as a stand-alone service, as well as translation (English and Afrikaans).

Our commercial services comprise copywriting (including PowerPoint presentations) and business plans.



We believe that in the professional and academic world, poor language makes a poor impression.

Grammar Guardians will help you make a good impression.
