Cambridge Language Consultants specialises in providing services pertaining to English language. 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 services.
We are now a truly international organisation. We provide a worldwide editing and consulting service, with experienced editors drawn from a number of English-speaking countries.
Our consultants are all highly qualified, holding a PhD in an appropriate discipline. 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.
