How We Work
Editing and Proofreading Service Procedure
Step 1: You send us your text by email. In the same email, you might like to tell us your estimate of our costs, calculated on the basis of the charges displayed on our Prices page.
Step 2: We edit/proofread a substantial part of the text you sent. This is your free sample of our editing style.
Step 3: If you like our style and wish us to edit your entire text, email us again to tell us so.
Step 4: The real work begins:
(i) We mark up a section of your text to show all our adjustments, suggestions and queries, then send it to you for approval.
(ii) You consider our markings and either accept them or query them. Write all your queries directly into the text. Send that text back to us. This process is repeated for every section of your document.
(iii) We review your queries, implement your suggestion, review our own adjustments, then send the fully-edited text back to you, cleaned of markings.
Writing Service Procedure
Step 1: You email a description of the writing task you wish us to perform. We send you a quotation for our services for performing it.
Step 2: We complete that task in accordance with your instructions, then send you a two-page sample of our work. (Our writers have learnt caution, so most of them ask for a 50% pre-payment before they begin work.)
Step 3: You pay our fee and we send you the entire text we have written.
Step 4: You review the text we sent you. If you want to make minor adjustments to it, do so, and return it to us for editing. (There is no further charge for this service.)
