Papertrue! True! True! True!
My experience with 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 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!
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

        How did proofreading change modern publishing?

        Let us address the elephant in the room first. What is proofreading? Proofreading is the final step in the editing process that ensures that your document is free from any minute errors and is ready to be published. If you recall, there was an error in the King James Version of the Bible in which it said “Thou shalt commit adultery” instead of the opposite, inciting shock and laughter from its audience and its critics. There are many blunders committed throughout history, especially for sensitive documents, which must have knocked sense into the heads of publishers to get someone to check the manuscripts before they were printed. 

        First, there were handwritten copies circulated everywhere. These copies were only of religious documents and important scripts written by nobles and people from the elite class. This means that even if there would be an error in one copy, it would be possible to scrap that copy and write a new one. But imagine the tediousness of the entire process! Maybe that’s why people were relieved when Gutenberg showed up with his printing press, full of metal letters stamped in ink. 

        Gutenberg is known as the ‘Father of the Printing Press’ for a reason. He made the printing process affordable and therefore allowed the middle class to get access to something that was considered only for the elites: education and literacy.

        A 1499 contract held the author responsible for proofreading. From then to now a galley which is a long tray holding a column of type, is used to make proofs. They are hence called galley proofs. We also use this term for the first copy produced in photo-composition and other typesetting forms, which do not involve the metal type.

        If you think that heated discussions between proofreaders and writers happen now, you are sadly mistaken my friend. Lawsuits between printers and authors were common throughout the 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. There is evidence of authors’ apologies and complaints not seeing corrected proofs in books, error sheets along with this. 

        Proofreading is even older than publishing if you look at the etymology of the word. How did the word ‘proof’ develop? The earliest known origins of the word from the Latin word ‘probare’, which means to confirm by testing. So we can conclude that the English word proof can mean both to confirm something with evidence and to subject something to a test. Therefore, the word ‘proof’ rears its head in the word ‘proofreader’. Since the word ‘prove’ means ‘test something’, the pre-publication process and the versions of the pre-published books were known as galley proofs. And the people who checked these galley proofs were ultimately known as proofreaders. And, reasonably enough, the people who checked these ‘proofs’ for errors were termed ‘proofreaders’.

        Fast forward to now and you have proofreaders as one of the most important people in the publishing process, without whom your book will probably be a mess. Proofreaders check for last-minute errors, spelling mistakes and formatting and your book turns out impeccable because of this finishing touch.
