Who We Are


Word One has been in business for over 20 years, starting in San Francisco and moving its home base to Brooklyn, New York, in 2002. We work with clients all over the country in a wide range of fields, including advertising, music, entertainment, publishing, nonprofit, and education.

Word One is an editorial management company.

So, what is editorial management?

Proofreading and project management combine to become a unique brand of services to meet all of your content and campaign needs. This is what we call editorial management.

We contract with proofreaders and copy editors to work on projects for advertising, media, and creative production agencies; publishing companies; nonprofits; universities; and many more. We put together a team of editorial personnel to meet each client’s particular needs.

We have a unique approach to proofreading.

The Word One editorial and project management team uses a unique approach, tailored to each client, to deliver expertly edited projects that adhere to client standards, brand, and style.

    We support you in creating crafted final products that make your team’s work stand out as its own extraordinary brand. We honor your creative as you’ve created it and foster and support your creative process from that first inspiration to when it goes out into the world.

    We don’t just proofread.

    We create a process that ensures the highest level of quality control. Whether it’s a short-term or long-term project, we employ a thorough in-house and online process. We also create complete proofreading departments for the clients that need them. We put workflow in place that will help your company achieve the highest level of quality in all of its communications.
