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

        The Complete Guide to ISBN: What It Is and How You Can Get One

        • calenderMay 20, 2020

        Have you ever seen the back of a book and wondered what those numbers on its barcode are? Those numbers are a code that forms the book’s International Standard Book Number or ISBN. Every book has an ISBN from which one can identify details about the publication. 

        Getting an ISBN is a crucial step in every published writer’s journey—regardless of whether they’re opting for self-publishing or a traditional publishing house. In this article, we try to deconstruct what an ISBN is, why you should get one for your book, and at what point of the publishing process you should get one. 


        What is an ISBN? 

        An International Standard Book Number (ISBN) is a uniquely generated number assigned to a published book. 

        It is an identifying feature of a book (the same way fingerprints are for human beings; just as no two people share fingerprints, no two books share an ISBN). It’s often used by entities who manage, publish, and distribute books for listing and other logistical purposes. It enables booksellers, publishers, and even readers to find a book with ease. 

        It is usually found at the back of a book and looks like this:

        How do I read an ISBN? 

        An ISBN has 13 digits (since 2007) and has five distinct parts that reveal a key piece of information about the published piece. Every code begins with the letters ISBN. 

        1. Prefix: The code begins with either the numbers 978 or 979, indicating that the published piece you’re looking at is a book. 
        2. Group identifier: A group or country identifier tells you which country or geographical region of the world the book has been published in. 
        3. Publisher identifier: This section identifies the publisher of the book based on the geographical location and language of the book.
        4. Title identifier: This is a unique code given to identify the title, format and edition of a book. Check digit: The final digit is a single number that validates the entire ISBN. 

        So cutting a long story short, the first three parts of the ISBN depend on where you are, who is publishing the book, and what language it is in. What truly makes one unique is the title identifier. Now, keep that in mind, because we’ll come back to this again soon. 


        How does someone get an ISBN for their book? 

        There are a few options you can consider. The options differ across countries, since, as you’ve already noticed, the number is specific to territory. 

        • Local governments have agencies that issue ISBNs. Countries like Canada and Belgium have specific public entities responsible for distributing them. (These are generally free of charge!) The official ISBN International website has a database that tells you whether your country has such an agency. 
        • In some countries, private entities distribute ISBNs, usually for a cost. If you’re in the United States, for example, and are a self-publishing writer, check out Bowker
        • You can also get an ISBN from your publisher or your chosen publishing platform. Folks like Amazon KDP and IngramSparks, if you have cut a deal with them, can get you an ISBN at a discounted rate or even free of charge! 

        Should I get an ISBN for my book? 

        The first question, before you say when, is to determine whether you want an ISBN for your book at all. The obvious answer is yes, since ISBNs help you track the sales of your book, and even boost it. But like any other step of the publishing process, there are many factors to be considered. If your budget allows you to get an ISBN, and you envision your book dominating best-selling lists, we say go for it! 

        Once you’ve decided that you do, think about which editions and formats you need to get an ISBN for. Remember when we had said earlier that each format has a different number? Now is the time to take that into consideration, because a print edition and electronic version of the same book will have different ISBNs. The same goes for translations and editions of books as well. 


        FAQs about International Standard Book Number 

        Is it mandatory for a writer to get one for their book? 

        It depends on what kind of book you are publishing. If you’re publishing an ebook, then it isn’t. However, if you’re aiming to put out print editions that online or offline retailers will distribute, then it is mandatory to get one. 

        If I’m putting out multiple formats of the book simultaneously, can I apply for multiple? 

        Yes! Almost all the ISBN distributors we’ve mentioned in the article have options for bulk orders of ISBNs (usually in packages of 10 or so). Getting them all in one go also means you might get a discount on them. 

        Is it worth paying for an ISBN? 

        There are a lot more pros than there are cons to getting one. The biggest advantage is that it puts your book in a database of published work, allowing you to compete fairly with all the books in the market. The other is that it gives your book a professional edge. 

        Are ISBNs transferable? 

        No, they are not, since they are issued keeping in mind the format of a book as well, and are designated to that one only. ISBNs are fixed and non-transferable.
