Papertrue! True! True! True!
My experience with papertrue.com was great. I came across their site from the high ratings. And the high ratings proved to be true. Once I got onto their site, I was immediately helped by a papertrue.com Rep, a live person, who helped answer my questions and walked me through the process. That was a big plus! And as a first timer, I got a discount or free edit. That was another plus! And the transaction was quick and easy. The turnaround time was also fast, delivery was on schedule and on time as specified. Another plus! My editor was also great and very helpful with comments, notes and suggestions. And when my document was completed and I had to ask a question to my editor, the Customer Service Rep was quick to respond. They escalated the matter so that my question would reach my editor and my editor would give me a reply directly and quickly. And my editor did just that. That was a major plus! Overall, thumbs up on great Customer Service and Editorial service. I would recommend them and look forward to working with them again. Thank you papertrue.com!
More than I had hoped for!
Did two jobs with PaperTrue and I'm highly satisfied. In one of the jobs I had some questions regarding their proposed changes and they immediately dug into it and explained why they had chosen certain expressions instead of others and what the differences were. That's really more than I had hoped for! And their chat-people are very alert - and good fun, too!
Very trustworthy and extremely efficient
I had an academic document proofread by the papertrue team. They not only corrected numerous grammar and spelling issues, they also advised on certain expressions according to my target audience. And the best, they did so over night... extremely fast, extremely good, and trustworthy service. Will be coming here again for the next publication.
Even my tutor can not find these errors
Thank you for editing my document on time. The editor pointed my attention to my commonly made mistakes; missing words, incorrect spelling and grammatical inconsistencies throughout the document.
I was happy to receive both a tracked and a clean version of the edited document.
I will happily recommend PaperTrue to my friends, and I will myself come back on a later occasion.
Excellent Service, Highly Recommended
I have used PaperTrue for several editing projects for my website. They have edited small and large projects for me. PaperTrue offers great pricing with no hidden fees, they always deliver on time and I love the fact that they provide a clean version and a corrected version showing the recommend changes. I highly recommend this company for anyone looking for quality editing services. They have great communications, project completion dates are given when ordered and they have consistently met the deadline. I am extremely satisfied and I will remain a loyal customer.
Great service, great company!
We are a Spanish advertising agency that work for international companies. Usually we need our copies to be reviewed. We trust Papertrue for doing this, they are always super-professional and always deliver the documents on time. I recommend them 100%
Improvement in structure, language and formatting
My cover letter was corrected very professionally, with very detailed comments and explanation. Smaller issues like my unclear description were changed shortly in a revision version, with a very smooth communication. I have learned also from the formating. For further CVs I will still consider their service, because the cover letter has to be formulated for specific job description. I don't do massive job application.
Quick 24 hour turnaround
Paper True was quick and effective. I needed a 24 hr turnaround and they provided me edits to my resume that became the talk of the town among my team. Everyone loved how thorough the edits were. Thank you Paper True for helping me so quickly and effectively.
Aaron is the best editor!
I live in Zürich and needed to have my cooking book "The Food Is Ready" , edited in english before I publish it. So I decided to sent the manuscript to Paper True and I can only tell that I was really impress when I saw the work they did. Aaron my Editor has correct the language and grammar errors. He has done a terrific work improving phrasing and consistency of my book. If you are looking for a serious company I can really recommend Paper True. And "they are allways there available if you have any questions"
An amazing job!
As a sixteen years old Danish girl I must admit finding the right editor was hard, but I found THE one ;)
Amazing service and a welcoming chat on the website! I love the detailed comments and feedback on the tracked document :) They really did a good job at making my debut novel a lot better while still keeping my style of writing!
Much love from Denmark <3

        A Guide to Book Editing and Proofreading

        • calenderMar 05, 2021
        • calender 5 min read

        After you finish writing your book, you have to deal with the intense realisation that it’s now going to go through a panel of editing and proofreading specifications. And editing and proofreading is a natural pre-requisite for any manuscript to be ready for publishing. Why is book editing and proofreading important, you ask? Let’s see:

        Book editing helps eliminate grammatical errors, syntax errors, and punctuation errors.

        1. Helps flesh out your story and characters better.
        2. Helps refine what the author’s vision of their book is.
        3. Helps make sure that the prose is tight and well-written.
        4. Helps eliminate continuity errors.
        5. A book editor gives valuable suggestions as to how else can you approach writing a particular character. 

        To know more about what exactly constitutes the skeleton of book editing, go here

        Book Editing and Proofreading in Fiction and Non-Fiction

        Editing and proofreading are said to be generally the same for all types of written material. But for novels and non-fiction books, there is a lot more that goes on which is different than other documents. In a book edit, you will encounter these steps:

        1. Developmental editing: Takes care of the larger aspects of a book like its plot and language and the overall style and structure.
        2. Substantive editing: A chapter-wise edit of the book which includes ensuring that the chapters are tightly-woven.
        3. Copyediting: The first round of editing that an editor undertakes to eliminate basic grammar and punctuation errors, along with the writer’s stylistic choices.
        4. Proofreading: Final stage of checking a text for minor inconsistencies and errors. 

        The process of book editing and proofreading varies even more with respect to fiction and non-fiction. Check this article to find out the difference in detail. 

        Book Editing 

        While a lot of people might assume that proofreading is a part of editing, it’s actually not. It’s a part of the editing process and isn’t a type of editing. 

        Apart from the above-mentioned three types of editing, there are a couple types in the middle of the process:

        1. Structural editing: It’s as it sounds; a look at the overall structure of your story. It helps with questions like:
        • How many chapters should I split my book into?
        • From where should each chapter begin?
        • Are my chapters in the correct order?
        • Should I add anything else to this chapter to tighten the structure?
        1. Line editing: Often confused with copyediting, line editing focuses on the edit of your book ‘line by line’, literally. It’s also known as ‘stylistic editing’, since it focuses more on style and not content.

        Book Proofreading 

        Book proofreading is the last line of defence in the pre-publishing and editing process before the book goes for typesetting, formatting, cover design, etc. It includes:

        1. Correction of spelling mistakes and typos.
        2. Checking for grammatical errors.
        3. Checking for syntax errors.
        4. A sweep-through of the text to check whether it’s error-free. 

        Self-Editing Your Book vs Professional Book Editing

        Even if self-editing sounds like a less costly option, working with a professional editor is going to benefit your book, especially if you are looking to publish it:

        1. Writers may or may not be trained to write, but editors are extensively trained to edit meticulously, along with strong vocabulary and knowledge of good grammar.
        2. As an author, you are emotionally attached to your text and will find it incredibly hard to edit, because everything will seem ‘okay’ to you.

        You can edit and proofread your first draft superficially using some tools that are available online, but we strongly recommend you to send your book to a professional book editor
