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

        Typesetting: An Introduction

        • calenderMar 25, 2021
        • calender 5 min read

        Typesetting can be defined as the process of ‘setting text on a page’. A typesetter arranges the text in the book to create an optimum reading experience. It includes:


        1. Defining the margins
        2. Pick the right font typeface and size
        3. Style the sections from where the chapter starts

        It usually occurs towards the end of the publishing process. 


        What is the difference between typesetting and typography?

        A lot of you might confuse setting text on a page with typography, and that can be because of the near-similarity in word choice. But they are very different. 

        Typography is the art of designing text. It includes:

        1. Choosing font
        2. Use of space
        3. Addition of decorative elements

        Typesetting is simply the process of setting that text on a page. 


        How does it work and what does a typesetter do?

        A professional typesetter will spend their time deciding the following specifications for a book:

        1. Trim Size: A trim size refers to the dimensions of a document after it has been printed and cut down to its desired width and height from a larger sheet, prior to any folding.
        2. Illustrations (if any)
        3. Margin specifications (the bigger the margins, the more pages the book will need)
        4. Font size and typeface for subheadings, chapter headings, title, etc.

        It also includes a few more specifications:

        • Word stacks – This occurs when consecutive rows of text start with the same word, making it repetitive. A typesetter makes sure that doesn’t happen. 
        • Footnotes and tables
        • Drop caps – The first letter of the first paragraph of every chapter needs to be stylized
        • Adjusting spacing between characters
        • Text color

        Once all of these elements have been finalized, the typesetter will begin the process of setting the text and illustrations on paper. 

        Why is it important?

        Think of typesetting as a file in which you keep important documents. They are much more neatly organized in the file than they would have been without it. It’s the same about your book. If the text is a cluttered and clunky mess, your reader will be put off after the first paragraph itself. It is important for a lot of reasons:

        1. A well-designed text directly influences how the readers enjoy the article or book. Just like typos and grammatical errors might distract a reader, design errors will do the same. 
        2. Authors are rarely trained to spot even minor design errors, which digital designers and typesetters are adept with. 
        3. Both the font and the typesetting work hand-in-hand to create a book’s unique look. 

        How to DIY typeset your book?

        1. LaTexThis is a free typesetting software which is great at formatting nonfiction books and documents. You need to be somewhat well-versed in coding as LaTeX is an open-source system.
        2. Adobe InDesign – If you are even a little bit proficient in designing, use Adobe InDesign, a software that professional designers use. Get it for upto $24 dollars per month.

        How to work with a professional typesetter?

        1. Get a typesetter who has previously worked on the same genre as your book. Typesetting, or design in general, uses subliminal messaging, and each genre communicates something entirely different, but adds to the text. A typesetter who’s worked with the romance genre previously, for example, will know more about what kind of font will not be too heavy on the reader when they read about love. 
        2. Judge the work of the typesetter as a reader. Ask for a sample of their work and go through it as a reader. Is it easy on the eyes? Do the words flow? Ask the important questions. 
        3. Look at samples of their work independently of reading the book. Pay attention to the font, color, background, etc. To be a good judge of this, it’s important that you read up about the intricacies of typesetting first. 

        PaperTrue’s pre-publishing services include cover design, ISBN and copyrights, review and blurb writing too.
