Genedits is an extension of Cambridge Language Consultants, a company that specialises in providing services pertaining to English language and consulting regarding the clear, logical expression of ideas. We originally incorporated in Cambridge, England in 1993 as Cambridge ESP Consultants, with a view to serving large corporations and banks. At that time our area of operation was mainly South Korea. In 1999, we changed our name and introduced a modified set of services, geared towards individuals in the academic and corporate environments who require specialised, quality, and reliable language and consulting services.
We are now a truly international organisation. We provide a worldwide proofreading and editing service, with experienced editors drawn from a number of English speaking countries.

Our editors are all highly qualified, holding at least a Master's degree in an appropriate discipline, with a PhD being preferred. All have functioned effectively in the academic and corporate worlds and have vast experience of proofreading and editing documents in a wide variety of subjects.
We demand a higher standard still for assessment of logic and the flow
of argument, and editorial advice. Our consultants have one
of the following two qualifications:
