English editing service for business and academic documents


The service package for those who want to improve the writing style and check the text logic and structure in addition to the correction.

A copy-editing is often compared with a "simple" correction. The scope of a copy-editing, however, goes well beyond pure proofreading. Editing always involves the fundamental improvement of the writing style in terms of clarity, intelligibility and reading fluency. Our editors make sure that your text is better written and thus easier to read. In addition, the "common thread" of your text, in other words the text logic and structure, is checked by our editors. If your text does not make sense or can be structurally improved at one point, you will receive a suggestion for improvement from us. And last but not least, you will receive written feedback on the textual quality from the editor during the editing process. This tells you where you can still work on your text yourself.

To give you a practical idea of the scope of a copy-editing, please take a look at the text below:
