Do you need someone to read and edit your writing?

I offer two types of services: Proofreading and Editing.

Proofreading:
- Correcting typos, errors in grammar and vocabulary.
- If something 100% does not make sense to me, then I will highlight it to let you know and offer a suggestion for you to change yourself.
- Your text does not change dramatically and still looks like you wrote it.

Editing:
- Correcting typos, errors in grammar, vocabulary, and expression.
- Improving style and expression which may include reworking, or moving entire sentences so that they make more sense.
- I will change anything that doesn't make sense into my interpretation of your meaning.
- Your text may look and feel a little different from the original.


How it works:

  1. Fill out the form (linked below). Please make sure it is filled out correctly. If your form is missing crucial information, or doesn't make sense, then I can't do the work for you.
  2. I correct your document based on the service you chose.
  3. I will invoice you in your currency (if available) for the number of hours I spent on it.
  4. You pay your invoice.
  5. You get your document back!

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for you to finish reading and editing?

If your document is short (1-5 pages) then it should be done within a day or two. For anything longer than 5 pages, please allow at least two business days or more.


What are your qualifications?

I am a native English speaker with a degree from a leading English-speaking university in Canada.


How will you correct my writing?

All documents will be corrected for grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Corrections focus on improving clarity and comprehension. This means that your text will be understood by a native English speaker.

For more intense edits, corrections also include awkward or unnatural sentence structures, and rephrasing of expressions to make them more natural for an English speaker to read.


Can you re-review changes that I make?

If you make changes to your document after I've returned it, I will be happy to review them for you at no extra charge, but only if the changes are not too significant. For example, I will review a few sentences, but not entire pages.

If you have made significant changes to the document, you will need to re-submit it for editing.


What will my document look like when I get it back?

I do all corrections on Google Docs, so you will receive a link to a Google Document. You will see the original text with markings, and if necessary, a re-written version without errors underneath.


What currencies do you accept?

Billing for this service is done on PayPal, so we are limited to what they accept. Go on their website to see a list of currencies they support.


Can you convert my writing to a specific style guide or format?

No, I do not change the format or style of the document. I will only edit the text.


Do you offer writing or translation services?

No, I do not.


What is the maximum number of pages that I can send in one document?

For the moment, I don't have a maximum. We'll see one day if I do!


Can I send more than one document?

Yes. But please note that all of the documents will be treated as one service, and the wait time may be longer.


What if I'm not happy with the corrections?

Within 30 days, please give me a detailed explanation of why the corrections did not meet your expectations, and I may offer to re-do it, or issue a refund.
