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 to Choose The Best Book Editor for Your Novel

        • calenderJan 30, 2020
        • calender 5 min read

        Ever seen a page of acknowledgments where the author hasn’t mentioned the book editor? In crappy books maybe. Editors play a huge part in transforming seemingly ordinary manuscripts into bestselling books. And authors know the worth of what they do. No matter how good you are at writing, or even editing and proofreading, you can’t possibly accomplish your best writing all by yourself.  

        Wanted: A Book Editor 

        If your goal is to produce a well-written book, put out a notice for an editor to join you in the project. It’s entirely possible that your story doesn’t have any major flaws. But taking the effort to ensure it is flawless in its entirety matters. That makes having a book editor on board an absolute must! Here’s the instrumental role they play in developing every book: 

        • Polishing the manuscript for literary excellence. 
        • Make sure the draft is free from all errors; grammar, spelling, language, and punctuation. 
        • Point out irregular sentence structure, character flaws, logical inconsistencies, and plot holes. 

        Doing all this takes a lot of time, patience and persistence. That’s why authors hire specialized book editors because they can’t possibly fix these things in the draft they’ve written and looked at for months! 

        There are various levels of editing; some editors do it all while others specialize in one or two. You will have to decide what level of editing your manuscript requires:  

        Developmental editing 

        Also called conceptual editing; is a job to appraise your manuscript at the macro level.

        Line editing

        Comprehensive editing where the editor scans through for error line-by-line in the manuscript. Your words will gain* a rhythmic flow.


        The last line of defense against errors, proofreading is the final check to ensure your books get published without a single error: Language, grammar, plot or structure. 

        Learn more about the levels of editing here.

        How to choose an editor?


        Have any self-published author friend who swears by an editor? Choose her without flinching. As someone has benefitted from their work first hand, you won’t have to doubt their credibility. If you don’t have one (start networking!), you can look up on social media websites or official websites about who they prefer.   


        Look for an editor experienced and comfortable with your genre. Such editors are well versed with the tropes and are familiar with the reader’s expectations. Be assured that they’re playing to their strengths, as they’ve carved a niche in that specific genre. They are well-versed with the flow, structure, and literary devices that work. At the developmental stage they also help you with dialogue and setting the appropriate mood.


        There is a pricing tussle between freelance editors and online proofreading services. While the former mostly charge hourly, the latter charge on word count. They’re all competitively priced; the cost depends on the time factor and the level of editing you want for your project.


        Make sure you ask for a free sample edit before you commit to a particular editor. Most book editors provide a short sampler to showcase their work and provide a quote with it. If you accede to the given changes, rope them in! Any detailed comments on the document also tell you a thing or two about the person, and how you’ll get along with the editor in them.

        Where to find book editors? 


        A marketplace to meet editors, designers or designers who can help bring your book to life. Reedsy is a great platform to find a team of professionals and put them together in one place. Apart from that they also offer a lot of other interesting services that help the author perform better, like the Collaborative Writing Tool. 


        Another cool platform to find freelancers you can put to task for editing, proofreading and designing your book. Additionally they also provide translation services. 


        PaperTrue provides professional editing and proofreading to ensure your manuscripts are error-free and impactful, with improved flow and formatting. Our expert editors are English experts who specialize in a diverse set of genres. We provide editing, proofreading, and formatting – all included in a single fee!


        Another cool platform to find freelancers you can put to task for editing, proofreading and designing your book. Additionally, they also provide translation services. 

        What are the alternatives?

        Professional book editors are pricey people to hire, and no one complains really. That impartial, experienced third party perspective gives you a priceless insight into the further scope of your story.

        Novice self-publishing authors are mostly tight on budget and cannot afford to hire professional editors, and that’s okay. If you’re in a situation like that, can you find an outsider’s perspective in:  

        Friends and family 

        If you’ve got anyone in the family who’s written a book, teaches English at school or has a flair for writing, take em for granted! Plead if you must, but ask them to read through your story and give honest critical feedback. Make it clear the payment won’t be in cash, but in familial loyalty.  

        Beta readers 

        An authors’ support base that reviews a manuscript before it’s published. They give feedback about what they like and don’t like about your story. Having beta readers study your draft is a great measure of quality control. Don’t expect any editing efforts on their part. Professional beta editors get paid, but you can make unpaid arrangements as well.

        That’s all we’ve got for you about how to pick the best editor for your novel. Which approach suits you the best? Do let us know in the comments!
