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 select the right book editor for your book?

        • calenderFeb 26, 2020
        • calender 5 min read

        Writing your book has been a labour of blood, sweat and tears. Imagine that to go to waste if your editor just completely butchers your book with their own inputs, so much so that it ceases to be your book anymore. You might end up venting your frustrations about why you hate your book editor and it will be too late. This is where we step in to rescue you from an endless black hole of having to select the right book editor for your book. 

        Book editor recommendations  

        It is essential that when you choose the right book editor, an experienced person has vouched for them. If this person has been in the industry for long, this validation is a professional stamp on the person. Ask yourself the following questions:

        • Is this person recommended by someone you know or other writers who have worked with her? 
        • Do they have any references that you can contact? 

        This will help you determine the extent of their work experience. Besides this, it will help you understand how they worked with other authors. 

        Do you want a specialised book editor?

        Are you looking for someone who specialises in a particular style of writing? There are editors who specialise in line editing, others that specialize in developmental editing, and so on. Make sure that the editor you choose is well-versed with the specifications of the format that you are going to employ in your book. Take these two instances, for example. A line editor will make sure that your sentences are crisp and short. If you want someone to look at the overall structure or plot of your book, then it is better to choose a developmental editor. 

        Do you want a book editor who specialises in a particular genre?

        If you’re a nonfiction author, it would be best to choose someone who understands the structure of non-fiction books. They know what works and what doesn’t, they understand the psyche of the average self-help reader. If you’re a fiction author, select a book editor who specialises in fiction and knows what will work with the readers and is passionate about delivering good stories to them. Choosing the right book editor within your genre is important, especially with developmental editing. Since developmental editing involves feedback and suggestions about the structure and development of the plot, it is necessary that you have a book editor who understands what is necessary to a particular plot. 

        Will the book editor give you a sample?

        Before hiring a book editor, you need to know that they will be good and experienced enough to edit your book. A lot of book editors will give you a sample edit for free or charge a small fee. It’s better that you pick a few book editors that you think are good and send each one of them a small sample of your book. Each editor will edit differently. After you get your manuscript back, check for three things: whether they improve your book, keep your voice and work well with you. It is better if you use the same sample across all book editors because it becomes much easier to judge the quality of their work. If you want to work with an editing company, ask them to give you profiles of their editors so that you can choose one that meets the qualifications required for your genre. 

        Is the book editor within your budget?

        This is one of the important things to keep in mind and this holds important, especially if you’re a first-time author or a full-time author. If you check for online book editors, they usually work freelance, so they set their own rates. Most online book editors are freelance editors, which means they set their own rates.

         Book editors may charge per word per hour or per manuscript. It’s not always important that the editors who charge the highest rates may offer the best services. You should definitely take rates into consideration, but we suggest that you don’t base the quality of an editor solely on the rates that they charge.  

        Is the book editor responsive and responsible?

        When your teeth hurt after you’ve ground them in frustration at your editor constantly being busy on calls, then they probably treat your book like any other business opportunity. Make sure you check the responsiveness and responsibilities of your book editor when you give them a sample edit of your manuscript. Ask yourself the following questions:

        • Do they respond well within time to your questions? 
        • Are they prompt with their deadlines? 
        • Does the editor listen to and understand your doubts and address them comprehensively? 

        Just like writing a book, editing one is a long and tedious affair. Make sure that whichever book editor you choose, they are only committed to your book during the entire duration. 


        You hustled while writing your manuscript, and now we make sure that our editors at PaperTrue hustle while editing it! Book editing is an important process which makes it even better by providing you with a third person perspective on what you could change, what you should keep and what could be better in your work. At the end, the sole authority of what to do with your manuscript lies with you, but it is always better to have a helping hand and a friendly, yet stern voice steer it in the right direction.
