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

        Becoming a book editor: a comprehensive guide

        • calenderMar 20, 2020
        • calender 5 min read

        Have you ever wondered what a book editor’s job is like? Read on to see how you can become one.

        What does a book editor do?

        You may already know that there are different kinds of editors. Often, this depends on what they edit. A book editor’s job differs from a magazine/newspaper editor, for instance. Moreover, there are levels of editing.

        But above and beyond all that, there are some overarching skills that every editor must have:

        • An in-depth understanding of the English language and all its rules, conventions and customs
        • Attention to details.
        • The ability to develop a narrative
        • Patience and meticulousness – because you have to look at the same text repeatedly, with increasing detail.

         

        Acquiring qualification and training

        A minimum of a Bachelor’s degree is advised for an aspiring editor. An editor’s academic training is usually in a language/writing heavy program like English literature and language, journalism, or communication. Even if you don’t have experience working as a writer or editor in college, prospective employers will know that you at least are knowledgeable in the field.

        But if you’ve realized your interest in book editing without having the aforementioned qualifications, that’s fine too. There are other ways to gain the skills characteristic of an editor. One thing you can do is to look for editing and proofreading courses at a (local) university or online.

         

        Understanding the process of book editing

        Step up your reading game

        Read, read, read. When we think of reading as a hobby, it’s mostly for pleasure. We read to learn about the world, or even simply to enjoy how a writer has interpreted the craft of writing. But for an editor (or an aspiring one), reading is a task that is far beyond that. Reading almost becomes an occupational hazard. What does that mean? It means that an editor reads to understand the technicalities of developing a narrative. Read to pay attention to way a writer has employed a certain literary device. Ask “why?” to understand the relevance of a sentence, character or a certain story arc that the writer has chosen for their piece. (This applies to non-fiction as well.) Make annotations. Think about the gaps that you see. Maybe even try to rethink the piece from an editor’s lens.

        Also, try to expand your reading preferences. Step out of your comfort zone to read different kinds of books.

         

        Practicing your new-found skills 

        Reading is not enough. Understanding what to do – theoretically – is only part of the task. Then, you have to practice. Since you don’t have a job, we’re assuming, what can you use as a guinea pig?

        • edit books and newspaper articles
        • your friends’ writing and assignments
        • subreddits like r/proofreading where people are actively looking for support from the online literary community.

        It’s also good idea to time yourself so that you can increase the speed at which you work.

         

        Stay updated with reference styles 

        A significant part of editing involves working on references/citations (especially if you’re working on academic pieces) and other formatting related things. Therefore, it is important for an editor to remain updated with the various citation styles. Because one of the most important skills for an editor is to work under pressure.

         

        Finding your niche

        To begin with, start working on any document you can find your hands. But along the way, you’ll find that there are specific kinds of texts you like working one. Perhaps it’s genre fiction or poetry. Maybe it’s scientific papers. Try to identify what you’re good at editing, as well as what you like best. Then gear your skills towards perfecting that kind of editing. You probably won’t land your dream job in the first go, but this makes the process faster.

         

        Looking for editing jobs.

        Step 1: Start with small scale freelance gigs.

        Register in freelance sites like Upwork and Fiverr. Write your gig – “sell” it in such a way that you present something unique about your editing style. Then watch the cash roll in. It’s good practice and works for two reasons. If you’re still in college, extra cash. If you’re doing a career switch, then freelance gigs provide some kind of stability while you transition.

        Continue to network on these forums with other editors and writers so that you can actively look out for job opportunities.

        Step 2: Graduate to local independent publishers.

        You can’t get to Simon & Schuster or Bloomsbury on day 1, so start applying to publishing houses around you first. Alternatively, you can apply to any firm that is looking for an editorial role. Magazines, local newspapers, media houses, etc. Even if your goal is to become a book editor, a little diversity helps. Once you have the experience and credibility, you can always apply for your dream job.

        Additionally, you could also considering dipping your hands in other jobs related to publishing; or departments in a publishing house.

        Step 3: And on to your dream job.

        Once you have done all of the above things – gained experience and found your specializing, continue working towards your goal. Do the necessary research to become an expert in your niche. Fill in the gaps by relearning if required.

         

        Then onward to applying for your dream job!
