    Would you help revise = Are you willing to help revise/Will you help revise

    Could you help revise = Are you able to help revise/Can you help revise

    "for us [to use as]...."

    Honestly, both are polite.

    Which to use will depend on whether you think they will or can help. Probably it is best to use "Would".
