Human Spellcheck

 

What’s included

When you order the Human Spellcheck service, your document will be carefully inspected line by line for any egregious spelling and grammar errors. Every sentence in your document (except those that require restructuring and/or extensive rewording) will be perfectly grammatical and logical. Any inconsistencies that are detected (e.g. if you have used both “USA” and “U.S.A.” in your work) will be pointed out and fixed (when possible). Any sentences that require major revisions will be flagged for you to resolve. Advanced language issues (e.g., voice, sentence flow, coherence, wordiness, etc.) will not be addressed, nor will formatting inconsistencies (e.g., font size, line spacing, etc.).
 

Who Is this service for?

If you are a native English speaker: You have already had your document edited (or you have self-edited) extensively. You’re happy with what you have; you just want to be 100% sure that there are no glaring errors in spelling or grammar, and you (rightfully) don’t trust a computerized spell-checker to find everything.

If you speak English as a second language: While you’re sure that your content is great, you understand that many of the sentences in your document do not sound as though they have been written by a native English speaker. You have a small budget for editing, and so you would prefer someone to fix the most obvious errors and simply point out more complicated ones for you to address on your own. (Note that, to get the most out of this service, your English must be quite good, as it will require you to rephrase some sentences yourself.)

Basic Proofreading

 

What’s included

When you order the Basic Proofreading service, your document will be carefully inspected line by line for all grammatical and spelling errors. Every sentence in your document (except those with indeterminable meanings) will be perfectly grammatical. Sentences that require extensive revisions will be reconstructed to improve the readability, clarity, and flow of your work. Any inconsistencies that are detected (e.g. if you have used both “USA” and “U.S.A.” in your work) will be fixed, with your opinion taken into account when necessary. In addition, uniformity in font style and size, line spacing, paragraph indentations, etc. will be ensured. Advanced language issues (e.g., voice, sentence flow, coherence, wordiness, etc.) will not be addressed.
 

Who is this service for?

If you are a native English speaker: You are very happy with the content of your work, but you are aware that the language you have used needs considerable improvement and that your document most likely contains more than a few grammatical errors. Ideally, you have already had someone check your work or you have done some light self-editing.

If you speak English as a second language: You are sure that most of the sentences in your document do not sound as though they have been written by a native English speaker. You need someone to not only fix all the basic errors for you but also to completely reconstruct sentences that have major grammatical issues.

Proofreading Plus

 

What’s included

When you order the Proofreading Plus service, your document will be inspected line by line for all errors. Every sentence in your document will be perfectly grammatical. Sentences that require extensive revisions will be reconstructed to improve the readability, clarity, and flow of your work. Suggested changes will be made to sentences with unclear meanings, and these will be re-edited as needed until you’re completely satisfied with the meaning that is portrayed. Every sentence will have a consistent and effective voice, with each sentence and paragraph flowing smoothly into the next. Any words that are merely acceptable will be replaced with strong ones. In addition, uniformity in font style and size, line spacing, paragraph indentations, etc. will be ensured. The English of your document will meet publishers’ standards no matter how weak it may be at the moment.
 

Who is this service for?

If you are a native English speaker: You have put together some fantastic ideas that you want to publish, but you’re perfectly willing to admit that you just aren’t that great with words. You want someone to make your writing sound as though it has been written by a seasoned professional before you submit it to a publisher or journal.

If you speak English as a second language: It’s been a struggle, but you’ve been able to translate the work you have written from your mother tongue into something that you hope resembles English. However, you are submitting your work to a publisher or a journal that has strict language requirements which you’re very sure your writing will not meet. You need someone to transform your translated words into an eloquent and professional-sounding piece of writing.
