What our customers say
"I'm a PhD student in Science, so part of my
work is to publish research papers. Since my native language is Chinese, I
always get confused when choosing between using or not using the mysterious
article – 'the'. And sometimes my sentences are unnecessarily long. As you might
imagine, my readers may get confused too. This is very dangerous in scientific
publishing because small grammar errors and ambiguous sentences not only degrade
the value of my research but also increase the probability of being declined.
So, the first thing after I have done a draft paper is sending it to EDIT for
proofreading. I'm always impressed with the quality of the work that John has
done. John has a really great understanding of science terms so in addition to
fixing my grammar errors, he can find out logical errors. I started using EDIT's
services when I was a junior graduate student and I have never been
disappointed. So, thank you very much John!"

"After wasting hours with variations of words to resurrect our website, I
came across EDIT via the web and was very pleased to have done so. John was
immediately responsive and after briefly interviewing some of our key staff was
quickly able to get a feel for the culture of the company. He rewrote the entire
content of our site within a few days. Highly recommended…"
