Frequently Asked Questions

Basic versus Advanced Editing: Which service should I choose?

Our Basic Editing services will check for errors in grammar, punctuation, syntax, spelling, consistency, and formatting. But if you’re looking for a more in-depth, comprehensive editing service, you may want to consider Advanced Editing, which offers so much more than a simple proofread. As part of our Advanced Editing services, we’ll consider the audience and purpose of each document. And as we edit and proofread, we’ll refine and tighten wording so your thoughts are clear and compelling. We’ll also help you maintain a consistent voice and style throughout.

If I submit my document on a Friday, when will I get it back?

You will get your document back within 24 hours of submission, no matter what time or day you sent it. So if you submit on a Friday at 6:00 p.m., we’ll have it back to you by Saturday at 6:00 p.m. at the latest. Our services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
