Swales & Willis has been offering end-to-end project management solutions to major publishing clients for 20 years. 

Our highly experienced team of project managers are able to see your book or journal project through from manuscript to final deliverables, including copy-editing, typesetting, proofreading, indexing, artwork assessment and redraws, and digital supply – or any combination of these elements, depending on your requirements.

All our project managers are native English speakers and university graduates, trained by us to have  exceptional standards and editorial expertise. We use only onshore editorial freelance suppliers as we believe this ensures the high editorial standards we and our clients expect. Our offshore partners supply large-capacity typesetting services and innovative digital solutions, including XML-first workflows and cloud-based editing and proofing suites. This system gives us flexibility in choosing the right suppliers for our customers, and means that we can deliver our projects on time, and on budget.
