I would like to find someone who would proof-read a Press Kit of an Mac OS X app in exchange for a license. Do you know any website / service where I could find some English native speaker, ideally technical writer, who would be interested in an offer like this?

Hi! i'm afraid proofreading requests are off-topic here, but asking where to find proofreading services is on-topic. I'm editing your question accordingly. More details here; in a nutshell, the FAQ discourages looking for writing/editing/publishing services ("Question is not about: Finding a professional to write for you, be your agent, etc."), except as per our critique guidelines. – Standback Aug 15 '11 at 21:23
@Standback Thanks for your editing. I wasn't sure about that point, but decided that proof-read is not the same as writing something from scratch, so I'm not looking for a professional to write something for me. This is the same situation as e.g. in blog post critique, in my opinion. – piobyz Aug 16 '11 at 8:05
@Standback link to meta.writers.stackexchange.com/questions/3010 is broken, I'm afraid. – piobyz Aug 16 '11 at 8:08
No worries :) Sorry about the link - should've been meta.writers.stackexchange.com/questions/301 . – Standback Aug 16 '11 at 8:21
@Standback Thanks, now I understand what was your intention in the 1st comment. I hope that my question will be a good source of proofreading services, if any answers show up :) – piobyz Aug 16 '11 at 8:30

If you offer a free license, I would ask people you know directly. Easier and more promising than online.

Sites taking licenses as payment do not exist as far as I know. But there are free services out there. Maybe you want to check them:


I haven't tested any of them. Also take a look at the Startups StackExchange site.
