Levels of Revision

You can decide if you prefer detailed feedback on a fully marked up document or if you just want to get your text back ready to publish.

Basic Editing includes a simple revision of spelling, vocabulary, grammar, and punctuation.

Annotated Editing gives you a full picture of everything we suggest to improve your text. In addition to essential corrections, we edit to optimize the structure, register, and tone. This option is also ideal for people who want to learn to improve their writing. If you request it, we can provide references to relevant resources (such as for grammar, punctuation, or vocabulary).

Translation Editing includes translation from German or French into English with careful attention to nuances of meaning. If your source text is in another language, we use machine translation followed by a revision of structure, grammar, punctuation, word choice, and phrasing. Where there is room for interpretation, we will comment on possible alternatives. We also alert you to differences in cultural norms that may be relevant. We work with you to create the best possible interpretation in English.
