    Welcome to the forum.

    It is difficult for us to comment on short phrases like these. Please post the entire sentence in which the phrase will appear and we will have a better chance of being able to help you.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Are they specific improvements or general ones?
