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

        Editing and Proofreading Fiction vs. Non-Fiction: Is There a Difference?

        • calenderJan 28, 2018
        • calender 5 min read

        We’ve spoken at great length about the different types of editing, the differences between editing and proofreading, as well as the importance of both. Now to tackle yet another difference, let us take a look at why editing non-fiction is very different from editing a work of fiction. Most people tend to go to the same editor for anything from a story to a job application. 

        While editors do have a sound foundation in grammar and can proof your work to make it error-free, it takes a subject expert to edit non-fiction documents that require specialized knowledge. Non-fiction editing, just like fiction editing requires coherence in the organization of information, but the focus is totally different. While the goal in a fiction manuscript is to find coherence and organization in storytelling, non-fiction editing requires coherence to strengthen your arguments and make information accessible. 

        So what exactly is it that sets these apart? We can critically evaluate the differences based on these parameters.

         

        1) Client Relationships

        No two editor-client relationships are the same, and this holds true for non-fiction and fiction edits as well.

        For authors looking to get published, they are almost always working in close contact with the editor. Additionally, the editing process is initiated very early in the writing stages of the book and is worked on starting there. This is what we refer to as developmental editing, and is done to help you improve your story itself. 

        Non-fiction editing leads to a starkly different relationship: the level of contact could be minimal. This is to ensure less interference in the information you present so that your research is not compromised. An editor is a language expert, but you’re still the expert in whatever you’re writing about. An editor, put in other words, cannot alter the meaning of your work. 

         

        2) Feedback

        This is probably the most evident difference and a direct derivative of the above. When an editor is handling fiction, it is an ongoing process that requires a lot of time, dedication and modification. Therefore, the kind of feedback that is provided is also very content related and focuses on developing the plot and characters of the book.

        However, when it comes to editing non-fiction work, your editor’s priority is to make sure the document is error-free as far as your grammar and language is concerned. The focus here is purely on the grammar and syntax, alongside overall document formatting.

         

        3) Editing Styles

        If we’re talking about academic documents (like, if you’re sending in your Ph.D for publication), the editor will have to take into consideration not just your personal requirements but also the style guide provided by your college/school. They will have to adhere to referencing styles as asked by your professor or mandated by your college. 

        Fiction editing style could possibly change over the course of editing to allow new ideas or trends. Other changes include the crispness of editing – where non-fiction requires the editor to be clear and concise, fiction has space for metaphors and dramatic writing. 

        While editing a book, editors tend to keep in mind the target audience and are generally flexible to accommodate your requirements as well.

         

        4) Getting the technicalities right

        Fiction editing focuses on characters, plot, dialogues and getting the general tonality of the manuscript right in order to appeal to the readers. This is technical-know how, no doubt, but in terms of form. The focus is more on finding the most compelling way to present your story – which is very dependent on how you write, and the language you choose for it. 

        In non-fiction editing and proofreading, on the other hand, the content of the document is mostly technical objective material- so editors need to focus on ensuring the jargon isn’t misused, and all facts and references are right. Like we said earlier, you’re the subject matter expert here. 

         

         

        5) Overall editing structure

        The process of editing is different for fiction and non-fiction work owing to the duration of editing as well.

        Think of non-fiction editing as a visit to your doctor. It’s a clinical process that comes into effect only after the writing stage is done, and focuses on treating your illness (grammar errors) based on symptoms described by you (requirements).

        Fiction editing is like visiting the pediatrician. Your editor cares about you and your book on a deeper level, and knows all your history and about your vision for the book. It’s a far more intrinsic level of developmental editing, and is a work in progress over a long time till the book is finished.
